Use of Netcat


Jason and I have just backed up and checked frisch's dos
partition, using netcat.

To backup, we did:

	morris:/dumps# nc -l -p 5050 > un.image
	frisch:/dos# nc morris 5050 < /dev/hda1

To check the files were ok, we did:

	frisch:/dos# nc -l -p 5050 | md5sum -c
	morris:/path/to/mnt/image# find . -type f -exec md5sum {} \; | nc frisch 5050

See Jason's email, subject: Backup addendum for information
on how to do a restore from amanda using netcat.
