Do you want to perform the tar on the remote host?
If so, there are technical constraints due to the nature of SCP – we don’t have access to a shell to execute commands.
A possible solution would be to have PenguiNet initiate a terminal session (with Send Commands) in the background. Is this what you envisaged?
Finally, please note that you can turn on compression which will help in the transfer time of files without having to tar!

Thanks for the response, sorry I didn't notice it earlier!
I will have a look into turning on the compression instead then :)monkeyben shared this idea ·
