remote backup from RHEL4 to another RHEL4?

I assume this a very newbie question. Your help and patience is appreciated.

I am trying to do a remote backup up of a RHEL4-U3 server to another RHEL4-U3 server. What I found in books and on the web is what seems to be a simple command and process.

"dump -0uf joe@server:/dev/nst4 /usr"

However when I try it I get a permission denied error on the backup server.

Below is a cut/paste of the problem. I assume there needs to be something configured on the destination server.

[root@earth ~]# /sbin/dump -0uf /usr
DUMP: Permission denied.
DUMP: login to as root failed.
[root@earth ~]#

and I tried this: (username = a real user id )

[root@earth ~]# /sbin/dump -0u -f /usr
DUMP: Permission denied.
DUMP: login to as username failed.
[root@earth ~]#

Any help or suggestions appreciated. Also, if you could "spell-it-out" for me, that would be super nice of you!

Just use rsync, it's better, more reliable and secure.
