How to backup image (file system) to remote Host.

I would like to find a similar command (tru64 Unix) to backup a file system to a remote hosts:

The following command is a vdump vrestore similar to dump and restore of linux. With the following command I was able to rebuild a system via the network if the os was installed.

vdump -0f 0 /filesystem | rsh remotehost /sbin/vrestore -xf - -D /mnt

I used the dump to copy file to local disk as follow:

dump -0 -f - /usr | ( cd /localdisk; restore -x -f - )

seem to work without rsh command.

Any suggestion of how to use dump and restore to make an image copy ?

Thanks !!!
