I'm transmitting a huge file (nearly 500MB) from Mainframes to Windows. Is it possible to compress the data and transmit?. If so, do I need to have any special software installed at mainframes and windows?

If using sftpg3 clients you only need to specify to use compression in the command line (+C) option. This will enable compression for that specific SSH connection.

Tectia client and server already include built-in zlib libraries so you don't need additional software to perform compression.

Note that the data will be compressed before transit and automatically uncompressed after the transfer is complete.
