Hi ya

What Windows File are you trying to backup ??

linux would be able to see windows as Share .

so you will have to put create windows Share that have to access those share from linux. [ this is the basic theory]

have a look at running question

Concept is same
Now my question is : how actually this windows server is connected to the linux, you said, its vpn connection.

do you mean, windows vpn or openvpn ??
thombieAuthor Commented:
Servers will  connect over  cisco  VPN
So there would be Constant connection between Windows pc and Linux Server??

I never done this before,
if  bellow works then it should work ...

At first install samba in linux pc, and create a share on windows pc

after installing samba, you would be able to view those windows share from linux,

if you can see that windows share from linux then you would be able to do a backup

Or check this link
