Sorry for the newbie question, is it possible to backup to FTP server as backup-point? If yes - how to do it?
FTP is an ancient non secure protocol. XSIBackup can backup over SSH, which is a modern alternative to FTP.
All Linux OSs and ESXi come with SSH built into even their minimal distributions.
Thank you , how to do backup over SSH?
