Transfer Datasets Between Two Servers

I have two servers that cannot talk to each other.  How can I setup a process on a workstation to transfer a set of SAS datasets from one server to another?

Couldn't you do it with a simple sftp from one server to the other?

Yes, this can be done with SFTP from one server to another.  I understand that the standard process is to use Enterprise Guide to create the code to transfer between the servers.  I have not found documentation on how this is done.

Please clarify "cannot talk to each other".
Start with your IT department to figure out which paths are available to you to route your data.
Then come back and see if it's feasable to do it use g SAS.
Are the both servers sharing the same OS and encoding?

The servers cannot talk with each other.  Files can be transferred using a workstation, SMTP, and enterprise guide.  I'm trying to figure out how this is done.  The operating system is not relevant.

Our SAS admin changed a setting which allowed me to transfer the data over.  No clue what he changed.
