I am trying to do the same thing. I am monitoring my whole network with SMS notifications and I can't afford the Dude to crash and then not have a back-up. Also the back-ups are to big to email, so it needs to be transferred to a remote server(probably Linux) via FTP or something.
I really thought there would be a option for this somewhere on the Dude, but it turns out there isn't
For now I am left with manually backing it up and then copying it to the remote server
This would REALLY be a great addition to an already great program.
Kind of a work around but if you are running in windows environment create a scheduled task that runs weekly that executes a batch file that zips the file then either emails it or ftps it somewhere. something like
@echo off set HH=%TIME:~0,2% if "%time:~0,1%"==" " set HH=0%HH:~1,1% set YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS=%DATE:~10,4%-%DATE:~4,2%-%DATE:~7,2%_%HH%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2% alzip -a "C:\program files\dude", "c:\backups\dude%YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS%.zip"
You could then extend the script to copy it to another server or ftp it to a server
