CPU & Memory Tar command between Servers


I have the tar.exe available in one of the servers say serverA.
But the source files(.gz files) are present in the Server B which needs to be tarred.
Currently i am coping the files from Server B to Server A one by one. inorder to reduce the time of copying the .gz file im planning to tar these files. But both are different servers Is this possible to use tar command?
if yes, how should it be used?

If you type in "tar network" in Google for example you'll get plenty of examples.
