DD will work over the network.  Ensuring neither drive is mounted, the
command would look something like this:

dd if=/dev/sda1 |ssh user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx "dd of=/dev/sdb1 bs=4028
conv=notrunc"

sda1 = whatever source device
sdb1 = whatever destination drive

if you want to do the whole drive then drop the numbers (sda ->sdb)

this takes awhile (5-25 Mb/s is the range I have seen).
Hope this helps.  Check the archives, we just discussed this subject and
proceedures for both dd and rsync are there.

Hope this helps.
