9 Backuppc (it's in portage) uses rsync over ssh, so you only need to open
10 a single port in the firewall. Optionally, backuppc offers an http
11 interface to monitor its status, so maybe you'll want to open port 80 as
12 well.
13 Use an encrypted filesystem to store backups, and you should be done.
15 Note: the above setup probably needs some work if you want full
16 automation.
