I have access to backup server via rsync protocol (only rsync, nothing else). Now, I want to fetch file from there (which is .tar.gz) and pass it directly to tar command, without saving the archive in local filesystem.
To visualize, with ssh access I could:
ssh remote_host cat backup.file.tar.gz | tar xzf -
And I will get uncompressed backup locally, without actually storing .tar.gz on local machine.
Is it possible to achieve when using rsync?
