Nightly backup of a win 2k server to a winxp pro machine off premisis over the internet.
Posted on 2006-04-17
I am currently using windows 2000 server in a law firm office. We have a nightly backup that runs there, but, due to the old state of the building, I would like to run a nightly incremental backup that would connect to a winxp pro machine at the owners home and place a copy of the backup there, in addition to the "on premis" backup. Once a month we would do a manual full system backup and manually move it to the winxp machine. I suppose this would involve either vpn or ssh? any ideas would be Extremely helpful. Also, the home winxp machine is on a cable modem with a Dynamic address. I think that it doesn't change too often, but I may need to start the ssh or vpn from the "dynamic" address, if this is a problem. Come on, give me your best, cause I need some help. thanks hikemarris ....Have tools, Will Travel...
