Hi Ross,

Backing up behind the firewall is made easy by using an SSH tunnel :)

We already have an offsite backup facility with a 3rd party, but I need more
control over the backups, and want to setup an inhouse backup server which
where all the client's account (this is hosting accounts & VPS's) be backed
up to, then this server will do an rsync with all the data to the offsite
backup server.

Kind Regards
