    You have a number of options, you can ftp data over, use scp (secure copy) over ssh, or you could use a tool like rsync which will compress and/or send only diffs across the LAN.

    You need to do some preliminary work first. Of course there is ssh, but that doesn't help in the transferring of files...

    Thus you should probably set up an ftp server on your main computer, and upload to that. This means that you would need to go onto each computer you want backed up.

    I recommend vsftpd as it is very secure (!) and quite easy to get working.
