It is actually easy to backup your Mac over a VPN to a remote server.
In this post:
- Our ‘remote server’ is a Mac Mini Server, with Time Machine and VPN enabled.
- Our client is a Mac Laptop.
- We are using this to keep the VPN running all the time, on the client.
Make sure the VPN connection is active.
Using AFP: Connect to the server/time machine, with the credidentials you want to use for Time Machine. Select the time machine folder from the pop up box.
In your Time Machine System Preferences, you will see the drive from step 2 when you add a new drive to time machine. Select it, and sit back and wait.
