Any ideas which file?
I have NFS shares enabled from my FreeBSD box to my OpenBSD box but don't have the shares mounted right at the moment. I didn't get a chance to try this out this past weekend. Maybe today I will putty into my boxes and give it a try.

when you stay on tar

tar cvf - * | rsh <RemoteHost> dd of=<YourFile>


tar cvf - * | rsh <RemoteHost> gzip backup.tar

I can't get rsh to work in that command, always starts to act like it is going to work and then says access denied.
Any ideas? i can ftp and telnet just fine.

With ftp and telnet you are giving it a username/password. In the way you are using rsh, you will need to set up the /etc/hosts.equiv files (or equivalent for your OS). Check out the man page on rsh and hosts.equiv.

And also check up on security issues for using rsh. It may be against your company's policy.
