If you just want to move the datasets, the easiest thing is to use the FTP tool that is on your servers. If you want to manage that from SAS, you can just use the "X" command to shell out for execution.
See "Using FTP to Transfer Files in Foreign Format and Transport Files across the Network" in the SAS 9.1.3 online documentation for an example. If you are working from machineC, you may need to first FTP the files to from A to C and then from C to B (depending on your rights on A or B).
However, before you investigate the 'X' command or try it, you might want to check with your SAS system administrators to see whether they've disabled the X command for SAS Enterprise Guide at your site.
If you are using Enterprise Guide 4.1 to connect to both serverA and serverB, you can use the Download SAS Data Sets task to copy the data sets from serverA, and then the Upload SAS Data Sets task to place them on serverB. It's a two-hop maneuver, but you might be surprised at how fast it runs.
If you don't yet have the Upload/Download Data Set tasks -- they are an add-on for EG 4.1 -- you can download them from here:
