> or | log file to another network volume: help needed

My UNIX skills amount to "Google,Copy,Paste..." but I managed to get a useful log file generated by an automation system that runs 24/7. The log file exists on an Omneon Media Grid server where I monitor it via "tail -F /..." Unfortunately we have many workstations running Tiger 10.4.8 still and they can not mount the Omneon. There is a common Xsan volume I could use but I can't find a reliable way of syncing the log from Omneon to Xsan so that I can monitor via tail on Tiger (no pun intended). I've messed around with echo, piping and tee but I'm getting nowhere. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

echo, pipes, and tee don't move data from one computer to another unless something's remote mounted somewhere. Have you tried ssh?

ssh username@host tail -f /path/to/file

ssh can be set to log in passwordlessly, too.
