Remote encyripted incremetnral backup to a windows machine

Hi, I`m using rsnapshot backup on a local server to backup files mostly from windows clients. It works just fine, but I have to figure out how to send every weekly update (week0) to a windows machine and do incremental backups every week there (sort like a backup for my backup).
Any tip in a right direction would be appriciated

The easiest way is to work out an appropriate command to send the file to a share on the Windows system, and then put that in a shell script. The smbclient utility looks like it has options for what you need. If you put your shell script in /etc/cron.weekly/ then it will automatically run each week.
