No, they want NOT copy to the NAS but want to copy FROM NAS to an external
server, which has a share on the windows machine. They cannot copy directly
to the external machine, because there is no rsync (dont ask why...).
The windows machine is between the NAS and the backup machine. Here the NAS is
NOT for the backup but to be backuped.
