Trying to backup a full drive via DD to a QNAP, but it's not as simple as a DD from regular drive to regular drive.

How do I DD to a QNAP? The QNAP is local.


Enabled SSH but unable to login via terminal:

If you have enabled SSH at the QNAP it is quiet simple:

dd if=/dev/sda | ssh -C <admin-account>@<QNAP-IP-Address> dd of=/path/to/store/disk.img

  • Set the ssh server's port number to 22 and make sure to use an administrator account to login via ssh. – dirdi Sep 8 at 16:20
