Yes, SFTP.


I've attached freeFTPD which most people have been using, its pretty good.



This is the following info on Cisco's website though:


To back up data to a remote device on the network, you must have an SFTP server configured. Cisco tests and recommends the following SFTP servers, but you may use any SFTP server:

•Open SSH (for Unix systems)


•Cygwin (refer to http://sshwindows.sourceforge.net/)


•Titan (http://www.titanftp.com/)

In addition to good information from Tim, if you have problems setting up the application, here are few simple steps:-


1. Under SFTP configure the SFTP root directory for example E:


2. Create your user and configure the home directory E:\Backup


3. Under virtual directories create a folder named Backup, set the virtual to Backup and configure the real path to E:\Backup


4. When you configure the DRS network location specify / for the path name.


Taken from one of my previous posts on a similar thread:-

I have proven this setup successfully with both 5.x and 6.x
