In the documentation at http://www.device-image.de/main_docu.htm netcat is used to move data from one machine to another. Why not use NFS instead? Setting up an NFS server is very simple, well documented and easy to do. I use it all the time for making drive backups.

Hi RichieB,

sure you are write. I choose the netcat setup because this is the easiest and fastest way to setup imaging over the network. But sure you can use all tools which enable the file transfer over the network, including smbmount for windows machines.

Regards,
Jurij

If you want nfs, you can try the linbox rescue server http://lrs.linbox.org
Backups are done via NFS, and restorations can be done via nfs, tftp, and multicast tftp !
