I have ftp access to a server I do not control. I'd like to start sending archives of my server's FS to that ftp. The problem is I don't have enough free space on my system to create a backup archive first (and store it on my fs) and then send it to ftp. So I'm wondering if it is possible to do something like this:
tar -jcpvf - / | ftp-put ftp://user:pass@host/file.tbz
Normally there is no problem doing it over ssh, but in this case I only have ftp available.
