Re: dd command for remote disk copy?

Is that possible with dd command(how if remote share is connected as
smb://ipnumber/share) and do you need root privilleges on local and
remote machine for that?
Perhaps
on source machine:

dd if=/dev/hda bs=16065b | netcat targethost-IP 1234

on target machine:

netcat -l -p 1234 | dd of=/dev/hdc bs=16065b

or

rsh 192.168.xx.yy "dd if=/dev/sda ibs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror" | dd
of=/dev/sda obs=4096
?
(any difference to dd/privilleges if you use it as windows dd version
since remote is running windowsNT)?


no what you're trying to do requires raw disk access
.
