    linux server for windows backups


    I'm looking for the good solution for creating windows backups using linux server.
    I did before one time with linux Gentoo 2007, and it was going great, backups were done perfectly, but when I copy back files to windows machine i was unable to open them and change the permissions for those files.
    If someone have some good suggestions or solutions, heat me please.
    Thank you.

    Gentoo Linux + FTP Server
    Windows + Cobian

    Cobian will makes the Backups to the FTP server Gentoo box.
    And you secure the Gentoo box with things like SNORT and IPTABLES.

    If you need more help with it tell me.

    Cheers,
    Robin

    Yes, since they are stored in zip/tar files with there permissions.
    All you do is using Linux as a Storage-box
    And well you can turn it into a Safe (since its linux) by putting a Firewall / IDS on there.

    Hope that helps.
