If you want to transfer dumps, netcat (nc) is the fastest way to go. I
guess it doesn't come with OS X, since it is available from macports or
darwinports. 

I was able to saturate the 10 Mbit connection between a laptop and a
desktop when transferring a dump file. :-)

Of course you can also pipe the dump output directly to netcat, but in
that case the speed of the dump is the bottleneck.
