I'd create a bare repository from active one and then copy it on remote. So:
$ cd ~/projects/repo
$ git clone --bare .git ../repo.git
$ cd ../
$ scp -r repo.git user@host://path
From there, you could then add such bare repo to your active repo as a source.
$git remote add origin ssh://user@host/path
Of course, you should always have a Git server running on the remote host.
