I have a machine running ubuntu server that I have set up to Wake on LAN
I also have a few pc running Windows XP.
What I want is to set it up so that every day or every time I log in or out, for an XP machine to back up the data onto the server.
I can manually wake the server by sending the magic packet and I can then run the backup tool included in XP to backup the data.
I have tried running it as a scheduled task but i cant get the wol packet to send this way.
Anyone got any ideas or an alternative way of waking the server and backing up the data?
Update: cheers guys all good stuff, I'll have a proper look through tomorrow. I was using a GUI tool to send the WOL packet so that might have been why it was so hard.
Would you say SyncToy or rsync is better for doing the backup portion? Cheers
