'man ssh' for remote connecting
'man rsync' regarding backups.

If you know the ip address of the system you can use "ssh" to remotely login in the system and copy the data. Else you can use "scp" to just copy the data to a remote machine using ssh but not login there.
Other than this you can use nfs service to share the data between linux machines.
