Could anyone tell me how i can remotely carry out a Timemachine back to a NAS drive? I have a My Book Live Duo 4TB.
Please could you tell me what software or hardware i could use. I'm in the Army and am all over the country and although i have a separate external HDD I want to be able to back at home from afar so if anything happens i know all my storage is safe..


Please HELP

I don't believe this is possible, since Time Machine uses AFP (a network protocol) to execute the backup. I don''t think that protocol is compatible with what you're asking.
