The client software is split into two components; backup-tool is a command-line tool that implements all the software functionality. The graphical user interface is backup-interface, which wraps this command-line tool. Backup schedules will still run even if logged out of the GUI, as the background service will still be logged in.

Additionally, clients can remotely control their installed software by logging in to the Magnus Box web portal as a user.

On platforms without a desktop interface available (e.g. Linux / FreeBSD server), only the backup-tool part is used, and you should control the application via the web interface.
