how do I asuming --local-infile=1 on server do a mysql -u -p -hremote dump to remote server filesystem

how do I asuming --local-infile=1  on server  do a mysql -u -p -hremote  dump to remote server filesystem?

I need to know specific to mysqldump which definitely can dump to either local or rmote
but how? what are the command line parameters
I know from MySQL   load  data  local infile  reads data files from the client
load  data  infile  reads data files from the remote file system
mysqlimport does this via the --local   option but no --local or --remote appears to exist for mysqldump  so how does mysqldump get this done? assuming complete control of system MySQLD server variables???

note the remote specified is any remotehost and -u -p  just were user and password left blank could have written -umyuser -pmypasswd

from what I can see, you cannot send the file to the server's filesystem, unless:
* you run the mysqldump on the remote server itself
* export to a folder which is mapped to the remote server itself

you will need to implement some process for the first one, or a "setup" of the mapped drive for the second option.

All the experts on the subject say mysqldump allows the dumping of  a database to a local or remote file system
as I said before it uses LOAD DATA LOCAL to and not LOCAL to grab the load file to import
from a remote and local file source.
e.g omit the LOCAL and it uses the remote
select * from city into outfile '/mydir/city.sql'  seems to store the output on the remote server of course the user must have file privileges but other than that there should be a way with mysqldump to do this and when I find it you will know. I may need to go look at the source code perhaps that will tell me

looking at the documentation, it's not possible:
maybe there "is" something undocumented ...

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

There has to be something undocumented
Robert SilverSr. Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I am still researching this for a final answer
Robert SilverSr. Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I think I will have to check the mysqldump source code ultimately
Robert SilverSr. Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I have decided to when I get the chance go through the source code of mysqldump to determine this as the silence here indicates this may not currently be possible. I will find out for sure except perhaps as suggested via NFS or UNCs and linked folders

ok, waiting for your findings...
