Automatic Weekly Backup from File Server to remote File Server offsite - Windows Server 2003

Hi, I currently run a file server on a box running Windows Server 2003.   Broadband connect 1.5mb up and down.

I would like to automatically, over the weekend, sync the file server with a mirror image on a remote server that I own.  Is there software that I can run on the local file server to push the backup to remote, or software that I can run on remote server to pull the backup from local?

Both locations are firewalled, so VPN or ports would need to be opened.

There are many products to do this. I really have never used any since the backups over here are far to large to backup over a WAN connection but I have heard good things about this product.
