Recommended FTP servers for backup and restore
You must have access to an FTP server to transfer data using
the FTP option. Ensim recommends use of the following FTP servers for
successful backup and restore operations.
Use one of the following FTP servers to back up or restore
FTP server installed
FTP servers installed on IIS are configured to support
the "MS-DOS" directory listing style while the control panel
follows the "Unix" directory listing style. As a result, if
you back up files using the IIS FTP server with the "MS-DOS"
directory listing style, the files do not display in the control panel
when you try to restore these files.
To resolve this, reset the directory listing style
on the IIS FTP server to "Unix" as described below.
To reset the directory listing style:
> Settings > Control Panel. The Control Panel window opens.
Locate the option,
Administrative Tools and double-click
In the Administrative
Tools window, locate the option, Internet
Services Manager, and double-click the icon. The Internet Information
Services window opens.
Click next to the name of your desktop computer to expand the access
tree. The list of sites and servers installed are displayed.
By default, the FTP server is stopped.
Select Default FTP Site and click to start the FTP server.
Select Action > Properties. The Default
FTP site Properties window opens.
Select the Home Directory tab.
In the Directory Listing Style area, select
The backed up files will now display in
the control panel when you restore the files.
