automate file copy on remote servers

Can I automate file copy from remote server to another remote server?
The file copy will be done on Linux boxes.
If this is possible, can someone describe how it can be done?
thanks

I would use FTP. There is FTP automation activity.

See this video.

Hi: As it turns out, I am needing to tar up the file first before the move and then extract.
So on source Linux box, I would need to tar up a couple of directories and files and move the tar file to destionation linux box then extract on top of existing directories.
Can you tell me if this is something Data Point can automate and how should I handle this using data point.
thanks much.
