      How about a few clues?

      1. What OS are you using?

      2. What is the name of your machine?

      3. What is the name of the tape drive?

      To copy files across the network :
      % tar cvfb – 20 files | rsh host dd of=/dev/rmt/0 obs=20b

      to extract files :
      %rsh -n host dd if=/dev/rmt/0 bs=20b |tar xvBfb – 20 files

      Why not ftp them across the network and then dd them onto the tape device?

      Hi
      Why don’t you configure a NFS server
      and mount remote host filesystem to your local host using automount configuration

      then everything is same as taking a backup using tar on local host

      All the best

      Answer 2 looks like the correct syntax, but: First you need host equivalency between the two hosts. I.e., configure either /etc/hosts.equiv (prefered!) on both boxes, or .rhosts files in each of the user home directories. Then the user accounts (name, id, and password) have to match on the two boxes – unless you are using NIS / NIS+?? Just a nickel thought: I know Sun uses “rsh”, but HP uses “remsh”. Not sure about IRIX.
