Sorry, I made a mistake. I have to transfer a container from Proxmox 1.8 to latest Proxmox version which is on another server. I have already used vzdump to create a .tar dump of the container and it's about 800MB. Where should I put that file in my other proxmox server (latest version) and what should I do to get it running?

Thanks for the feedback. Can you pleaes specify the commands. And also
should I change the IP in GUI or some config file?
My pleasure.

Well, the interaction with Proxmox is expected to be done via web GUI.

Do the backup in "Backup" tab of your 105 container.
Do the restore in "Content" tab of your storage, it will offer you a dialog to specify the new VM ID.
Change the IP in the "Network" tab of your new 106 (or whatever you numbered it) container.

Surely you can do the same via command line interface, but i'm not familiar with it. Check http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Command_line_tools for reference.
