    Hello :)

    What protocol are you using when configuring the backups? Have you tried connecting to the remote server from the source server via that same protocol to verify if works when connecting manually?

    Thank you.

    You mentioned using FileZilla. What I meant was, logging in to your cPanel server via SSH as "root", and attempting to connect to the remote backup server via FTP from the command line. This should help ensure the issue isn't a connection problem between the two servers.

    Thank you.
