Transfer Files from one LAMP Machine to Another

I have two LAMP server and I need to transfer a whole directory structure from Machine A to Machine B.

I have telnet root access to both machines.

For most projects I'm working on I just use FTP and download files to my local drive and then upload to the new server via FTP.

But this particular application has nearly 25GB of files to transfer and I would like to simply go straight from server to server.

Is there a simple way to do that from from within the shell access?
