    I am running webmin 1.580 on FreeBSD 9.0. I have Filesystem Backup configured to backup to a linux box on my network over ssh, I Created a tar file on the linux box using tar -CF archive.tar and setup Filesystem Backup to backup to it and the below error occurs. I am able to ssh into the linux box without issue, how should the Tar file be setup or am I missing something simple? Any ideas?

    Performing backup of / to tim@192.168.1.2:archive.tar ..
