    I'd like to know if anybody know how to change the path of backuppc for the backups? I would like to use my /home directory, which is using raid 5 on much bigger disks than all other directory. In the tutorial, it is said that everything goes in /var/lib/backuppc.

    And just in case someone knows the answer, what would be the permissions I would need to give to my /home/server01/backuppc ??

    All right, did not use the right words in my search. But not is another question, how should I create this link (ln /var/lib/backuppc /home/server01/backuppc)? In this case, will /home/server01/backuppc have the same permissions as /var/lib/backuppc (I am relatively new in linux world).

    As a second question (that sould maybe be in another thread), I ask myself today one question about my installation. All my servers are on the orange interface of my IpCop, but my all my desktops are on the green. Like orange can't access green, is using backuppc the good solution? I bet no because I would have to open a port from orange to green, but in that case, is there any other solutions (apps)?

    ln -s /var/lib/backuppc /home/server01/backuppc
    BackupPC has nothing to do with your network configuration and your firewalls.

    Thanks for the correct link syntax!

    I know that backuppc doesn't have anything to do with my firewall settings, but I do feel like i have to get my server and desktops in the same network? Otherwise how will backuppc be able to connect to my desktop?

    Yes, that would be the easiest solution. :)
