rsync works on files, dump on filesystems.

If you want to use dump, the fine FreeBSD manuals says:

# /sbin/dump -0uan -f - /usr | 			\
	gzip -2 | ssh -c blowfish 		\
	targetuser at 	\
	dd of=/mybigfiles/dump-usr-l0.gz

man ssh for setting up authentication with keys.

On the mac, you must enable remote login under "Systempanel -> Sharing
-> Services" if I remember correctly.
