I dont see if that allows me to upload to a remote FTP, does it? If not, what programs allow that?

I never used flex backup with ftp - there might be a config option to do just that. I'd recommend though using flexbackup with ssh for security and safety of your data - it works fine for me. Most likely if the backup host is a Unix host it will have a ssh daemon running in parallel to ftp.

Alternatively you could try netbackup:

But I never tried it, so I cannot really recommend it.

But for rsync he needs ssh or rsyncd running.

Use rsync with rsnapshot (googe rsnapshot). Works very well. Multiple snapshots for little more than 1x original size.

Nice find - I wasn't aware of rsnapshot before. Thanks cineman!

But the OP obviously needs something based on ftp. Perhaps he/she needs to backup to a Windoze server?
