I'm a little perplexed.  My scenario is that I have data loggers in the field,

dynamic ip addresses and the telco company keeps them hidden.  In other words I 
can't have my backup amazon ec2 server poll my data logger.  Again, the need to 
push the backup.  I'm not really finding any information on how to accomplish 

I tried something like:

rdiff-backup --remote-schema 'ssh -i /home/ubuntu/id_rsa.pem %s rdiff-backup 
–-server’ /home/ubuntu/data/ address@hidden::/home/fielddata/data/

This won't work as it complains about incorrect switches.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The way I do it is to establish an openVPN tunnel. Beware that rdiff-backup is very sensitive to the link quality.
