thanks for your feedback. I am developing a software and I need to keep transferring data to the client side once in a while for testing.

For me. I'd just backup the database, take the .bak file to the other network and restore it.

But, if you are just wanting to do a couple of tables then you could export the data to a .csv say, move the csv's to the other network and truncate the tables, then use the import wizard to bring in the csv data.

I have a process that I have daily where I have data from one network exported as a bcp file, then zipped then put onto an FTP server. At my end, I have an SSIS package that gets the file from the FTP, unzips and then runs an import of the bcp files.
(a lot of setup, but since it is daily it is all automated now).

the problem I have is the db size is big and then I have unreliable internet connection.

If your tables have ID's, how about getting the last ID from the destination table. Just export the source records with a greater ID?
