    Webmin, Filesystem Backup and tar files

    I have posted on the webmin forums but never got a reply
    I am running webmin 1.580 on FreeBSD 9. I have the Filesystem Backup module configured to backup to a Ubuntu 11.10 box on my network over ssh, I Created a tar file on the Ubuntu box using tar -CF archive.tar and setup Filesystem Backup to backup to it, and the below error occurs. I am able to ssh into the linux box without issue, how should the Tar file be setup or am I missing something simple like using another tar program? Any ideas?

    Performing backup of / to tim@ ..

    Usage: List: tar -tf <archive-filename>
    Extract: tar -xf <archive-filename>
    Create: tar -cf <archive-filename> [filenames...] Help: tar --help ..

    .. backup failed!
