On the server you want to transfer the file to click Start, Programs, accessories, system tools, Scheduled Tasks. Right-click in that window and click new, scheduled task, then give it a name. Double click it. In the Run box should be something like this:

copy /Y \\otherserver\share\filename.zip c:\folder\filename.zip

On the Schedule tab, set it to run as often as you want (daily, weekly, hourly, etc.)
Click OK, put in username & password, then right-click the task and click Run. Check to see if the file copied ok.

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

If you want toi copy a file or files based on change, robocopy left permentantly running with the /MIR in conjunction with /MON or MOT switches will do what you require.
As an example, robocopy c:\folder1\ c:\folder2 *.txt /r:o /w:0 /mir /MON:1 will copy all text files from folder1 to folder2 when there has been 1 or more changes to the folder.

BTW, ensure your running version XP10 or higher of robocopy.
Microsoft provide a GUI for robocopy if your uncomfortable with the comand line

Here is the download link for GUI version  - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2006.11.utilityspotlight.aspx

You can create a batch script using robocopy command line strings and put in you schedule interval, so that on that particular schedule it will transfer/copy/move  the file from source to destination
