ftp backup job on HybridBackup 3.0

Hi everybody,

I want to create a backup job to an external FTP or Samba server. According to the product page of HBS 3.0 this should be possible.https://www.qnap.com/solution/hbs3/en/

However, I can't find a setting like this in the configuration. The only categories I have, are the NAS category (with local NAS and remote NAS[RTRR]) and the cloud services.

The remote ftp/Samba/RSYNC options are available for synchronisation jobs, but unfortunately not for backup jobs.

Is this a feature not implemented yet for backups? If so, when will is it expected to be delivered?

Or is there a wrong setting/ missing configuration or whatever on my side?

I can add my FTP server as storage space - so they are working in general. Btw, what is the use case for the storage spaces? If I want to add a new backup/ sync job or whatever, I have to fill in my server settings anyway. There is probably something, I didn't get so far.

Regards,
Bodo_1987

That's the way it is and always have been in HBS.

There's nothing preventing you from using a Sync server as a backup destination but you'll miss out on the more advanced backup features like versioning.

My guess is never but you need to ask Qnap for the future direction of HBS.

According to the QNAP product page of HBS3, remote FTP, SAMBA und rsync is supported. https://www.qnap.com/solution/hbs3/en/ Just go to the supported cloud service section and you will find it in the first rows of the table..

Then if it doesn't work, you need to take that up with Qnap and have them fix it (or correct their marketing claims).
