Offiste backups are a great idea.. I've done remote backups using rsync on
a local network and on a very limited basis over the public network from
work to home.

When setting up *my* production webservers though, i want to make sure my
nw backups are locked down (as secure as possible).

Any thoughts on securing rysync over the public nw?
Or maybe there is another nw backup method/service i could/should be using
other than rsync?
