copy files from linux to windows


i want to be able to create a script that runs in a cron, that once a night, it will backup /usr/local to a windows server. Whats the best way of going about this? some sort of non-authoritative ftp file transfer?

you got the gist...

chances are you have support already; it is very common.

i would recommend smbfs for backup on same network due to ease of implementation. the alternative likely requires more config/setup.
