Reading the Contents of a Dump Tape

Hi there --

I ran a dump of several filesystems to tape, and I would like to read the contents of it. What command would I use to read the tape? Thanks.

Use for example:

restore -tvf /dev/nst0
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
