bup-server - the server side of the bup client-server relationship SYNOPSIS
bup server DESCRIPTION
bup server is the server side of a remote bup session. If you use bup-split(1) or bup-save(1) with the -r option, they will ssh to the remote server and run bup server to receive the transmitted objects. There is normally no reason to run bup server yourself. MODES
smart In this mode, the server checks each incoming object against the idx files in its repository. If any object already exists, it tells the client about the idx file it was found in, allowing the client to download that idx and avoid sending duplicate data. This is bup-server's default mode. dumb In this mode, the server will not check its local index before writing an object. To avoid writing duplicate objects, the server will tell the client to download all of its .idx files at the start of the session. This mode is useful on low powered server hard- ware (ie router/slow NAS). FILES
$BUP_DIR/bup-dumb-server Activate dumb server mode, as discussed above. This file is not created by default in new repositories. SEE ALSO

bup-on - run a bup server locally and client remotely SYNOPSIS
bup on <hostname> index ... bup on <hostname> save ... bup on <hostname> split ... DESCRIPTION
bup on runs the given bup command on the given host using ssh. It runs a bup server on the local machine, so that commands like bup save on the remote machine can back up to the local machine. (You don't need to provide a --remote option to bup save in order for this to work.) See bup-index(1), bup-save(1), and so on for details of how each subcommand works. This 'reverse mode' operation is useful when the machine being backed up isn't supposed to be able to ssh into the backup server. For example, your backup server can be hidden behind a one-way firewall on a private or dynamic IP address; using an ssh key, it can be autho- rized to ssh into each of your important machines. After connecting to each destination machine, it initiates a backup, receiving the resulting data and storing in its local repository. For example, if you run several virtual private Linux machines on a remote hosting provider, you could back them up to a local (much less expensive) computer in your basement. EXAMPLES
