Question Network Burning?

Hey all,

When burning using Solaris 8, the standard command would look something like this;

mkisofs -r filename filename.tar | cdrw -i -O

But what I want to try and do it burn over the network and was wondering if anyone has done this before.

Like a tape drive backup can be run across a network can I do the same with burning a CD?

For example;

I got 2 computer hosts names and MARS and EARTH now the burner is setup on EARTH and I'm on MARS right now. I want to burn on EARTH from MARS without having to ftp the files over to EARTH.

I got little idea's on how this could be done. One would be to ftp the files then telnet and burn that way. But I want to try knocking out the ftp'ing part just burning over the network.

Does anyone know if this can be done? If so how?

That will consume a lot of bandwidth, and if there is a network "burp", you could get gaps in your ISO...

I know it's a bad idea to run something like cdrecord across a network (buffer under-run will almost certainly occur), but have never tried mkisofs first... For safety sake, it would be a better idea to make an image, move it locally, and then burn.
