[Dirvish] Push instead of pull?

I seem to remember seeing this in the documentation somewhere, but I 
can't find it now.  Is it possible to push backups, rather than pulling 

On my network, I have both wired desktop machines and wireless laptops.  
The wired machines all have dedicated IPs, and I pull backups down for 
them each night.  This is working great.  The laptops are in and out all 
the time, visiting coffee shops, the local college campus, clients, 
etc.  I've tried setting up profiles on each of those that would take a 
dedicated IP here and use DHCP otherwise, but so far that's not working 
so well.  They do spend the night here most nights.  Is it possible to 
run Dirvish on the laptops, pushing the backups to the backup server 
each night on cron?  Alternately, is there a way to notify the server of 
the laptop's IP address when it logs back in to the network?  I know 
that last question is beyond the scope of this mailing list, but maybe 
someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance - I'm looking forward to <more> complete backups.
