I am trying to backup my home directories onto my ftp server, but I get this error when the backup runs...

tar: unrecognized option `--rsh-command=/usr/local/etc/webmin/fsdump/ftp.pl'
List: tar -tf <archive-filename>
Extract: tar -xf <archive-filename>
Create: tar -cf <archive-filename> [filenames...]
Help: tar --help
.. backup failed!

Any help?
Are you on FreeBSD? If so, make sure you have the GNU tar package installed and not the plain old tar that FreeBSD comes with by default. Only the GNU version supports remote backups ..
