Yep, I backup my wife's office to my home computer every night. I use pcAnywhere since her office had purchased it and it's very easy to setup and use.
You'll need the external IP address for each computer, an IP monitor program to let you know if the IP changes (I use the free Gateway IP Monitor), and you'll have to forward the ports if you're behind a router. Finally, you'll have to leave the pcAnywhere Host running on each PC.
I used to use SyncbackSE and had setup an FTP server for this purpose - but it was too slow and it there were too many attempts to hack into it - so I switched to the pcAnywhere program and haven't looked back!
Others may be able to suggest some freeware applications to do this also.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able. - John
