Connect to another ip address
I am new to linux I want to take back up of pc (operating system linux in all pc's) want to access some other pc connected with lan I have the ip address of that pc and also the u/n and password tell me the procedure to access that pc to put my back up.
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.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
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.
