    I got this. Now the FTP seetings can be a IP, username and password correct? Like If I wanted to store my backups on my home server? Port 21 also right?

    And what about the error, anyone else get this?

    Thanks

    I thought I would post this since I got the same problem and did a little research on it.

    This is what line 340 is in the backup script
    $ftp->login("$ftpuser",$ftppass);

    So, there are issues with the username and password for your ftp account. I am not sure if you can use ip addresses or not.

    Do you know what the error was and if you can use ip addresses? I am struggling with this now and trying to find the solution. Thanks for any help.

    Yes you can use the IP. Make sure the user has full rights on the server it is connecting to. I had an issue not giving full rights and that also caused problems.
