     627== Q39/ Can I use other network protocol than NFS for backup/restore ? ==
     628
     629Since version 2.2.9, mondoarchive needs a new option to provide the protocol type to be used for network backup/restore. If for example you want to use sshfs as a communication mean, you need first to add support for that fuse based filesystem to your distribution, then use that protocol in mondoarchive CLI. Following example is for a RHEL 5 based machine:
     630{{{
     631wget http://dl.atrpms.net/all/fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-128.7.1.el5-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm
     632wget http://dl.atrpms.net/all/fuse-libs-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm
     633wget http://dl.atrpms.net/all/fuse-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm
     634wget http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/fuse-sshfs/fuse-sshfs-1.9-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
     635wget ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/ftp.centos.org/5.3/updates/x86_64/RPMS/kernel-2.6.18-128.7.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
     636rpm -ivh fuse-sshfs-1.9-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm fuse-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm fuse-libs-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-128.7.1.el5-2.7.4-8_12.el5.x86_64.rpm kernel-2.6.18-128.7.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
     637reboot
     638}}}
     639
     640Once you're on the new kernel with the right modules, issue for example:
     641{{{
     642sshfs user@server:/mondo /mnt/mondo
     643/usr/sbin/mondoarchive -O -N -g -n sshfs://user@server:/mondo -d iso -s 4300m -T /writer/mondo/tmp -S /writer/mondo/scratch -p rhel-mondo
     644}}}
     645At restore time, the new as of 2.2.9 start-netfs script will setup the sshfs mount bak and you'll then be able to restore from it.
