Hi :)

I want to be able to backup my accounts on a remote server I have at my home. I have a home network with a router and a couple of computers. On one of them (Windows 2000), I installed FileZilla FTP Server. On my router, I fowarded port 21 to this specific computer (the computer has a static IP).

My internet connection give me dynamic IPs so I have an account at DynDns (ex : mydomain.dnaslias.com). On the same server that has the FTP server, I installed DynDND update client which automatically update the IP at dyndns.

Everything works perfectly. I have access to this FTP server from inside and outside the network, using an account I have created on FileZilla server with ALL permissions.

However, using CPanel > Backups > Generate/Download a Full Backup, I'm trying to send a backup to this FTP and it is never sent on my FTP server. Moreover, on the FTP Server log I don't see any activity related to this. Seems like CPanel never even tried to access the FTP Server.

I receive this mail confirmation :
Can't call method "login" on an undefined value at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ftpput line 28.
