I'd like to copy a large file on a remote computer, to the same remote computer, without going through the network.
The computer on which the files to be copied are is running Windows Server 2003.
Anyone knows how to do that?

Look at PowerShell 2's remotin capabilities. It will run a complete script on a remote system (or the same script on many remote systems concurrently).
Powershell remoting is your best option. While PSexec and running a copy command remotely will work PSexec is often flagged by antivirus software as a virus. See PowerShell 2.0 remoting guide: Part 1 – The basics
