Subject:   FreeBSD box for backing up WfWG boxes?
Message-ID:  <199509170136.DAA04324@mvmampc66.ciw.uni-karlsruhe.de>

I'm currently considering how to back up around 20-30 WfWG boxes.

I could get at the data using Samba, the free SMB over TCP client.
However, the only free backup system I'm aware of, Amanda, only supports
getting the data in question with dump, which can only back up a local
hard drive (even though it can send the data somewhere remotely via
rmt).  However, it depends on having UNIX running where your data is.

The hardware is a PC box with an attached SCSI DAT drive.  If I can't get
this to work using a free UNIX variant, the only workable alternative
would be WNT <insert fear and loathing>.

Any ideas how to tackle this?  Surely, somebody must have come across
this problem earlier...
