OT: cloning (copying) a HD over a network...

The hard drive is full on our server. I can ssh into it from my
workstation. I've got a formatted drive mounted on my workstation ready
to receive the server files.
How do I easily copy the server files to the workstation drive over our
network ? Keep in mind that I need to preserve the file ownership,
permissions and dates.
If I had the new hard drive mounted on the server, I would use:
cp -aR /olddrive /newdrive >> logfile
I've tried using scp, but I cannot force it to preserve the file
I've tried using sftp, but I don't think it is recursive and I can't
force it to preserve attributes.
I'm trying to use tar, but I can't figure out how to make it work across
a network. FWIW, I have sshd enabled on the server, but not on the
workstation. I don't have nfs enabled on the server. Can I do this
without enabling it ?
Any hints would be appreciated.
