Linux remote backup - VPN?
Posted on 2005-04-14
In the office we are currently running Fedora Core 3 as our fileserver. I have recently setup a Fedora Core 3 server at home, and I want to be able to implement an offsite backup solution. My plan is to frequently perform an incremental backup of the server in the office, probably using rsync to carry out the remote copying.
I am fairly new to Linux and I don't know the first thing on how to setup the link between the two servers, what ports to open on the router or what protocols to use.
I have a 2MB ADSL connection both at home and in the office.
Can someone take me through step by step on how to set this up, or direct me to some documentation?
