Backup remote Linux Server to Local Win2KPro CD-RW over SSH
I am responsible for the remote administration of a Linux (RH8) Server
over SSH from my home Win2kPro machine.
Is there a way to mount my local Windows CD-RW drive on the remote Linux box?
I would like to perform backups with out the tar or zip files taking up extra space on either machine.
(i.e. Compress files and write to CD all in one process...)
Will Samba be necessary? Any difference in Samba if my home computer is on no special network or workgroup - just a static IP?
All responses will be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration!!
