Back up SBS server in office to 1TB USB Drive at home

What I am thinking of doing is setting up a system to have my SBS 2003 server do incremental back up's via the Internet to my 1TB USB drive at home. This is in addition to my tape drive back up's.

I'm trying to find software that will allow this kind of back up to an IP address or domain name through something like no-ip.org. Does anyone know of anything like this?

Pretty sure it can be done, I just seem to have a tough time finding the right software - preferably Open Source or Freeware.

l would take a look here:
https://secure.logmein.com/products/backup/
It will allow you to backup to your own hardware also you don't need to have static IP's at your office.

Office has static IP, it's the home computer that doesn't.

I like how LogMeIn's BackUp product looks, just hoping I can find something in the OpenSource or Freeware realm, so I can tinker.

I use LogMeIn to support our field users, so I know they have good products. Just thought I'd throw that out there! ;-)

setup dynamic dns at home.  You can then configure a vpn using many open source vpn solutions out there.  Once you have a vpn link you can use ntbackup to run the job over the weekend to the remote site.  Now this would greatly depend on the size of backup, bandwidth connection, etc...

D'oh! I got so used to using Backup Exec, I forgot all about ntbackup.
Fun being the chief cook, and bottlewash.

Thank you.
