comment Home Linux server is slow (but fast to the outside world)
Is the server itself under load and unresponsive? If you go to the console of the server, is it snappy there?

comment Automating SSH tunneling on OS X
What part do you want automated? The whole thing end to end, or do you just not want to be prompted for your password?

comment Why is that when I attempt to verify an archive using tar I am displayed the error this does not look like a tar archive?
It doesn't say what implementation of tar they are using. tar differs on different platforms. If you want to learn to use tar on Linux, you need to find a tutorial that is GNU specific.

The W only works during creation. 'tar tvf tarball.tar' will do what you want. man tar: -W, --verify attempt to verify the archive after writing it
