You can use ssh to copy the dump file to another machine. Configuring
ssh to use ssh_agent you will not be required to insert a passwrod, thus
you can do it automatically. I guess there's also an option to specify
the password on the command line.

I guess you can write a shell script that checks, periodically, if the
restore file has been copied, then restores it and delete the files
(thus to not restore it infinitely).
