install rsync from the ports on all machines and on the "clients" do a /usr/local/bin/rsync -azRv --delete /etc backup_server:/backup/ (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. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? New Yahoo!
