I use the following line in order to copy one directory
 to another directory on another machine.

tar cf - .|rsh <ip address>
 '(cd <destination dir>;tar xBvf -)'

the problem is that all fileswere created with  root as owner.
What can I change in this command in order to transmit the dir with all owners permissions and groups

Try adding the "p" option to tar.  This will preserve the permissions and ownerships.

first the user id in the 3de field of /etc/passwd must
be the same number on both hosts.

switch from tar to cpio , when used by root, it maintains user
informations

find . -print | cpio -ocB | rsh <ip address>
      '(cd <destination dir>; cpio -icdvB)'
