Question backup options for Linux

I am looking for backup solutions. I need to backup 5 servers to a server dedicated to backups. All the servers are on the same subnet in a Microsoft LAN environment. Backup files ar 5 - 10 Gb when tar'd with bzip option.

Tar works but requires so much manual intervention to go between servers.

Dump when I tested it does not work. I believe the required ports are not available and I can't make changes related to that.

Are there other options?
