Do you mean you want the backup machine to be essentially 
a copy of the main machine?   Or do you mean you just want to
store backup files on the backup machine?

Samba or NFS???   No

To do the first - maintain a copy of the first machine on the
backup machine, use rsync and ssh for 'authentication' and 
data transmission.

For the other, keeping backup files on the other machine, 
use dump(8) over the net to the files on the backup machine.
