Copy files


Hi,
I can already see the frowns I will get for this, but I need some help.

I have setup a VPN network which is to small to do major database work and the like.

My solution is to copy some files over the VPN every night when everybody has gone home.

No problem, so quickly wright a simple bin/sh file which can do this. Then using the at command the schedule the running of the file. Now, this is where my problem comes in. I can't find anything that says how to run the at command every night.

What I have gathered so far, is that you can run it any time but only once.

Is there any other program that can copy the files across every day at a specific time?
