    I am going to set up Time Capsule for our house and since my daughter is home from college, I thought that I would have her use it for her Mac Pro back-up.

    Can she use it over the internet when she is back at school for auto-backups?

    Possible, but not easy. iCloud, Dropbox would be easier !
    If really TC then you would need some good internet connection plus quite some config knowledge. You would need a fixed IP Adress or something like dyndns.com; port forwarding and maybe a VPN connection for security.
    Ever done that ?

    Another backup option would be Mozy, Crashplan or some online service.
