https://docs.python.org/2/library/tarfile.html says:

 tarfile.open(name=None, mode='r', fileobj=None, bufsize=10240, **kwargs)

    Return a TarFile object for the pathname name.

(How) can I read a tar file from a (tcp) socket?
I do not have a pathname but a socket object from socket.create_connection()
