I need to be able to backup data from my server to an offsite location, so that the backup data will be encrypted. Incremental backups would be a huge bonus, as the amount of transferred data will be in the tens of gigabytes over a 10Mb/s link.

Both sites have Linux.

Try out HDUP


* simple to use,
* small and versatile backup program,
* support for incremental backups,
* support for backups over the network (with ssh),
* support for network restore (with ssh),
* support for encrypted backups (using mcrypt, gnupg),
* support for split up archives (called chunks),
* support for .nobackup files (to exclude certain directories),
* flexible regular expression based include/exclude mechanism,
* designed to be run from cron.
* You need a Gnu tar version > 1.3.25

Actually, the fellow says that HDUP is unmaintained and directs to a tool called RDUP.

I'll check that out...

yep, it can be. I used hdup some time ago (years) and it was very easy to use and quite fast, so I only googled for it and posted some features, I didn't check that page too much :)
