Sorry for the newbie question, is it possible to backup to FTP server as backup-point? If yes - how to do it? 
Thank you

Re: Backup to FTP

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.

Re: Backup to FTP

You can backup over IP via SSH by just setting the backup point to a remote computer, where you have three values separated by colons, which represent IP:Port:Remote path, i.e.:

--backup-point=10.0.0.3:22:/your/backup/destination

All backup programs support SSH over IP backups except Vmkfstools, we are ultimating (c)XSITools compatibility with SSH backups at the time of writing this.
