Remote computer has an IP address

You can copy catalog prog from remote computer in simple way:
rsync -avz --delete root@ /local/backup/ &&
 rsync -avz --delete root@ /local/backup

Another way.Connect to remote computer by ssh and copy remote catalog /etc/samba/ in /local/backup/current-backup/. Then, after changing some files in /etc/samba/ copy changed or new files in /local/backup/current-backup/ and old files, which situated in /local/backup/current-backup/ move to /locale/backup/backup-`date +%A`. In this command backup-`date +%A` means day of week.
rsync -avz --delete root@ /local/backup/ &&
rsync -avz --delete root@ /local/backup

To automate the backup is recommended to configure passwordless ssh access or configure the nfs and mount as a local drive and create a new task or run manually.
