Thanks, now I just need to figure out how to not get the password to stay in the terminal history.

@sparticvs, I am not in the position to setup a VPN connection to test this unfortunately.

I think I need the /p: at the end, so when the user pressed the enter key, the user gets prompted for the password. If I don't have /p: at the end, they have to enter the password into the command string which stays in the history and is a security risk. Also, if you look at th screenshots, you will notice that the [use my rd gateway credentials for the remote computer] option is ticked, so it seems the the same credentials are used for both the user and the gateway.

@Gilles, so to get progress report, do I use sudo sh -c 'pv /dev/sdb >/dev/sdc' instead of sudo sh -c 'cat /dev/sdb >/dev/sdc'?

@Gilles, I have pv installed and am currently copying the data using the cat method you suggested. How do I use pv to get a human readable progress report?

@Gilles, thanks for the answer. I have another five 3TB drives to clone and will try the cat option next. As far as I can tell, that new dd command is going to take another 3 hours to complete, to about 11 hours in total. If the cat approach is faster than 11 hours for the second 3TB HDD, I will use that method for the remaining drives.

@Groxxda, No, it's a single sata cable, which allows 2 hdds to connect to a single sata port. It's doing 19MB/s for some reason...

@Groxxda, I have no idea how to do that.
