    Hello,

    Is there a way to backup ( using cpbackup ) over some secure protocol like ssh or sftp?

    Sure, in a ssh session you can use:

    /scripts/cpbackup

    if you need to re-run backups already updated for the same day, then use

    /scripts/cpbackup --force

    I don't think that was the question...

    I think that stormrider whan't to ask about remote backup, because there is only option "Remote FTP Server", there is no way to copy backup files to remote server over SFTP or SSH.

    I think that only way for remote secure backup is to set a NFS for backup directory.
