Subject: [gentoo-user] tar over ssh

Hey guys.

I've got this big fat backup server with no space left on the hard drive
to store a tar file. I'd like to pipe a tar through ssh, but not sure
what the command would be. Something to the effect of:

# cat /var/backup | ssh backup.homelan.com 'tar data.info.gz'

So that, the data is actually being sent over ssh, and then archived on
the destination machine.

Help!

:-)
