Copying data files from one server to another

I need to copy 10+ GB bytes data files from one HP-UX server to another HP-UX server. Can this be done using cpio or tar commands using remsh? Files are over 10G bytes after all compression. Can rex utility help here? Any other solutions other than rcp or ftp? Files are Oracle database datafiles.

The only way that I know to copy the files would be using rcp or ftp. The remsh command executes commands on a remote machine.
