This actually solves thee other problem of people coming in after 
using a dialup at home. I usually have to get them to reboot during 
the day to get a backup. That script is very usefull.

Now, I was planning to filter out and have 2 scripts for offsite 
backups. Once for one special folder, useful for the modems and our 
normal filter that we use for dsl/cable.

Pitty is can't be the control panel pinging the server and not the 
opposite way around. There must be a solution since dantz sell it 
with Internet Backups??
