Backup Exec Error with Unix NAS Box

We are running Symantec Backup Exec ver. 10D on SBS 2003 Server.
We have some data on a Unix Base NAS Box (SmartStor NS54300N, Operating System: Embedded Linux).
If we setup a job to backup data from NAS box to Other NAS box or any Windows Box, we are getting following error:
Error: e000846b, The job failed with the following error: The resource could not be backed up because an error occurred while connecting to the Backup Exec for Windows Servers Remote Agent.
Do we need Backup Exec for Unix Remote Agent for this to work? What is the best way to complete this task since source of the data is on Linux based NAS box?
Also under Property of the backup job > Resource Credential, when we run “Test all” we get following message:
Failure: The backup Exec Remote Agent for windows Server is not installed on the remote computer, or it’e not running, or is not the correct version.

You'll need an agent if you want to back up from the host. Alternatively, you could look at exporting the files systems/data you want to back up and mounting them on the backup server itself and backing that up - i.e. use drive mappings.

If map a drive on a server for NAS data, I can’t select network drive in backup exec. Backup exec only shows local drive.

new liveupdate is at ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/liveupdate/lusetup.exe 

you have to back up NAS as if it was LOCAL FILES, there is no agent for particular box.
i think NDMP (if supported on storage box) needs extra licence.
