SPUG: Regarding Perl and file transfers

Since I started learning Perl, I've focused almost exclusively on Perl
CGI. I'm just starting to learn about networking with Perl.
I want to create scripts to do all the computer-to-computer backups on
my personal LAN. My first thought was to use SFTP because it secure and
it is easy to set up an SFTP server. And I saw Net::SFTP so I thought
I'd learn how to use that.
Right away I ran into problems using Net::SFTP. It is probably either
the way that I installed it or the way I tried to use it. But
nevertheless, I notice that Net::SFTP is only on version 0.10...
So I take that to mean that Perl programmers do not commonly use SFTP
for communicating files with their scripts. Then, what protocol is
commonly used? Do I need to learn to make those complicated-looking
scripts for creating socket connections?
I would appreciate it if some one could point me in the right direction.
