comment On Windows 7, is it possible to configure an additional static IPv6 address in addition to a dynamic IPv6 address?
I wasn't interested in a link-local address (link local addresses don't work as easily as global scope address since the interface has to be specified). Running the above CLI command did create a permanent IPv6 address but I could have done the same thing in the GUI by choosing manually assign an address. The important part to me is that the system still gets a router assigned global scope IPv6 address in addition to the static IPv6 address.

I tried running cat in the ssh remote command but I got write errors. I was able to get the command working by using dd instead of cat.

I haven't see anything in the GNU docs that describes this feature as depreciated and it does work for IPv4 (you can easily try both IPv4 and IPv6).Yes, I should have included the error output which has tar complaining about that it couldn't write that device. The --rsh-command is not needed since GNU tar on CentOS/Ubuntu is compiled to automatically use ssh instead of rsh and this wouldn't affect the destination IP.

It does work for GNU tar but not AT&T or older BSD tar - it makes use of the BSD rsh (but uses ssh) and rmt system. See the bottom of this page: gnu.org/software/tar/manual/html_node/file.html#SEC104
