Create a backup from a remote computer to a local computer using tar
Posted on 2004-04-12
I have a remote computer (named RemoteLinux) that I want to backup onto my local computer (named LocalLinux), preferably using tar and ssh. The remote computer is running RedHat 7.3. The local machine runs RedHat 9.
I ssh through a vpn tunnel. The RemoteLinux address is 192.168.200.12. The LocalLinux address is 192.168.70.5. I want to backup the /home/shared folder.
