Hmm, that's not much of a backup server.  What I do is run
rsyncd on my server at home that's attached to DSL, and the
offsite server sends its backups to that.  This works really
well since I get about 5 Mbps inbound from the DSL.

It's also comforting to have the two machines in different
states and under different management... for example I'm not
screwed if I have a billing dispute with the hosting

BTW I'm using Layered Technologies (layeredtech.com) for
unmanaged hosting for a startup business.  They have really
good deals and astronomical bandwidth.
