I backup my home directory to a Linux box on my network using a sparse image file. I plan to write an initial backup and then do smart updates from then on through the network after mounting the image from a shared directory on the box. I was just wondering if there are any ways to tunnel this through an SSH connection to that computer. That would be a really nice additional feature if SuperDuper! isn't capable of doing that just yet.

Well, since SuperDuper! doesn't actually *know* it's backing up over a network, if you can get the remote volume mounted beforehand using SSH (and I know that's possible, I just don't have the method at hand), your backup will happen over SSH as well...


Hope that helps, and Happy New Year!
