rsync.net was built for UNIX and your mac was built on UNIX. They work perfectly together.
Your rsync.net account even has Time Machine Style snapshots of all of your data, enabled by default. No need to configure these or do backups of your local time machine - they are set up and running as soon as you create your account.
rsync is already installed on your Mac OS X system. There is nothing you need to install or configure.
Further, our support team will provide you with an rsync command or rsync script. You just tell us what data to include.
This Simple HOWTO will step you through the simple process of creating and scheduling backups of your Mac.
Browsing Your Backups and Snapshots and Doing Restores
You may access your rsync.net account with ANY tool that runs over SSH/SFTP/SCP.
This means that you may connect with Filezilla, Cyberduck, Flow, Fugu, Transmit, etc.
Our favorite method is to mount your rsync.net account on your mac with sshFS - that way you can drag and drop directly in the Finder.
Another method we have documented is to use the Filezilla client for quick and simple browsing/dragging/dropping.
Your filesystem snapshots (7 daily snapshots for most accounts, 7 daily + 4 weekly for 1TB+ accounts) are located in the .zfs/snapshots directory in the root of your account.
