Bob, this can be done (and has been done) in a various of ways.  The two
that I've used are:

- The free option of OS/400 called ObjectConnect.  There have been
discussions about this on the list in the past.  Essentially, you start a
save on one system and the restore is started simultaneously on the remote
system.  No SAVFs to mess with, no FTP, no SNADS.

- Tivoli Storage Manager client through BRMS.  The way I set it up was to
save to a SAVF then have BRMS save the SAVF data to the TSM server.  Didn't
need to be set up that way, but I did so I would still have a copy of the
save on my system for faster individual object restores.  Only a very small
subset of the user data was saved in this way.
