Hi All,

I have a Ubuntu desktop and a gentoo server, and I have a .tar file on the server I want to extract that to my desktop without setting up windows share (smb).

I can't just scp the file to my desktop and extract it there coz there is not enough disk space and theres not enough disk space on my server to extract it on there and copy it to my desktop.

Is there a way of extracting it to a ssh server or deleting as it extracts.

Help would be appreciated,
