Given a named pipe, how can I send a continuous stream of this pipe through ssh?

The netcat equivalent of what I am looking for is

  • from client

    dd if=myfifo | nc -l 12345
  • from server

    nc <client IP> 12345 > stream
  • Can you explain what the two lines are doing? – Francesco Boi Nov 15 '18 at 9:32
cat source.data | ssh ${hostname} 'cat > destination.data'


ssh ${hostname} 'cat > destination.data' < source.data
