You could use scp, if you have it.  

scp -r servername:/test/*  10.xx.xxx.1/test

Or something similar.  Then you can use a for loop to transfer the same files to many servers.

If the files are on the local machine, you don't need the server name.  Just the path.

Can you see all the files by doing something like
ls /test/*

Ok, good.

Do you want to run a loop?
