I want to know how to transfer data from windows server to linux server.

I had written one utility in c++ which sends data from windows machine to linux machine using sockets.but its using more bandwidth because of this my website is going down. and if i copy manually also its taking more bandwidth.

I don't want to happens this.

Is there any other way which transfer data from one server to another with less bandwidth.

Compress it. You can always use something like rsync or simple scp. Both support compression. Outside of that, if you have 10 gigabytes of data, you're going to use 10 gigabytes of bandwidth.
