DLT remote access?


I have a server running SUSE Enterprise Server 8.0 and some workstations running RH9.0 and SUSE 9.2.

In the (old) IRIX days I could access my DLT7000 from another station on the network by using the command : 'tar -cvf guest@server:/dev/tape directory'

How can I set up this remote use of tape drives on Linux? I created a user called guest and gave permissions to /dev/st0 (my tape drive) but it is not recognized.

Anybody using a SDLT600 on Linux?

this isn't something i've tried, but google has a fair bit about it, and in general it seems near identical: http://www.linuxgazette.com/node/6751 only thing i see there that you've not mentioned is creating an rhost login file on the remote machine.
