Remote Shell from Linux to Solaris?

I currently back up 2 Solaris boxes, which use a remote shell to utilise the tape drive of one box to back up both servers.

I'm looking to do a similar thing using Linux, GentooX to be specific. I would like to back up my GentooX installation using a Solaris 9 server with a tape drive via remote shell.

Can anyone give me some help with this, if it's even possible?

Which program do you use? It may be ported.

Solaris' standard "rsh" command, which then uses "ufsdump". I'm hoping there may be a Linux version I can "emerge" in GentooX, but my GentooX installation's "emerge" function is not working at the moment. I will be reinstalling it soon, though, when Home v4.0 is released.
