  • Remote FTP Access

Remote FTP access will allow the server to automatically upload backups directly onto your NAS drive. With just a little bit of configuration your NAS drive will be able to store all your cPanel / WHM Backups securely.

To configure you may have to login to the web administrator panel for your NAS drive and enable FTP storage including setting up a secure username and password the server can login as. You may also need to forward port 21 on your router to the NAS drive. For more information please visit http://portforward.com
