No Sorry

Im Complicating it.

Our host will configure a backup for us but their storage space is too expensive, we are looking for a cheaper alternative to store files online and our host has requested scp access and sshkey communications as requirements of the server space.

ok so you want to backup data from host server to any cheaper online storage  ??

1.if its right, then can you access your host server by using ssh ??
2. if you have linux box in your organization , and if you have internet line, then why are you not backing up your own data ??( like we are doing ) just let the back up at night , by the morning it will complete

I use their bingodisk services, their service support is excellent and the cost is reasonable.

That does make sense, we run macs in our studios and do indeed have an internet conection.

Our host was proposing writing a script on their server which backups databases and www files to another location, im assuming that location could be our studios.

We run macs so what would be required our end, and what info would we need to give our host??

We are using a linux server.

Our local network can have a unique ip and we would like to be able to download from our web server.

Will rSync be suitable for us?

Thanks
