Brackup will backup to local disk, or remotely to ftp, sftp, Amazon S3, or
Rackspace CloudFiles targets/servers. So yes, on a lan you can backup over 
ftp or sftp just fine.

Re docs, install brackup, 'man Brackup::Manual::Overview'. I've also written
a few blog posts on it: http://www.openfusion.net/tags/brackup.

Cheers,
Gavin
