it seemed simple enough but rdiff is not working. Can someone show me the syntax to backup my remote redhat server to my local windows C: drive? - thank you

Google is your friend. Use it before asking questions on a forum. You may be surprised to find the answer to your question in just a few seconds.

Case in point: try searching for "rdiff tutorial".

Yea Google is definitely my friend. I did google 'rdiff-backup' downloaded the tutorial, used the syntax as described which did not work for me. That's why I came to the forum; I think I'm more surprised at what I find here than Google.

link and command below found in Google.

Simple remote case---backup directory /some/local-dir to the directory /whatever/remote-dir on the machine It uses ssh to open the necessary pipe to the remote copy of rdiff-backup. Just like the above except one directory is on a remote computer.

rdiff-backup /some/local-dir

check out this one as well on how to work with keys.
