I would like to ssh to host B, cd some/path, tar some/path/directory/ and output
the tarball locally to TARBALL.tgz
I could ssh to host B, create the tarball, then ftp but I have space limitations
on host B. Also I could ssh to host B then do
tar -czf - somedir | ssh host A '(cd some/path; cat > somefilename.tgz)'
but security (reverse lookup issues) prevent this.
I am only glad to know how method 1 can work. I know I can workaround the reverse
