install rsync from the ports on all machines
and on the "clients" do a

/usr/local/bin/rsync -azRv --delete /etc

(modify command to your needs..see man rsync)
in a cron job or from command line. This command will
use rsync-over-ssh from the "client" to the
"backup_server". It will ask for a password unless you
set up keys for auto-login with ssh.
