Samba client copies files from irix to windows.
You can use tar or pax or cpio to make actual files.
Probably rsnapshot can be of use.

I'll give it a shot.

I was looking for a commercial product as my 'nix admin skills get used very rarely and hand holding can save me some time as this is a per call and if it doesn't work,I can't bill.

Arkeia seems to be last to provide IRIX agents too.
