I am a newbie, and before I start setting this up I am trying to find out if will work in a similar fashion to the commercial product from connected.


I think the main feature I am after if the ability for the client to initiate the back-up on a scheduled basis, the connected product is very in your face – which for laptop users etc I think is excellent, it tells you about failures and so on.


There is then also the ability on the back end to see the status of all the backups.


Is this possible?


If any-one is interested I have a nice front end for windows for rsync which I have had wrote, if anyone wants the source to modify for this use?
