    So heres the deal, Im using plesk 8.1 and trying to backup to a remote FTP server using the new plesk backup utility.

    Heres my setup:
    -Red Hat Enterprise 4 server
    -at ServerBeach server farm
    -ReadyNAS 1000s NAS server, using FTP
    -behind netgear prosafe firewall connected to the net via Time Warner Road Runner cable, 8000kbps down, 768kbps up

    YES....Iv already done the obvious:
    -set up port farwarding on the router on: 21, ect., and MANY ranges of passive FTP ports
    -tried DMZing the NAS, to no avail
    -tried many different connection strings in the 'FTP server' setting in plesk
    -tried MANY different read/write permissions and usernames on the NAS FTP directory
    -connecting to the FTP server from multiple FTP clients, from multiple different machines, on different WAN's, all of which worked.
    -I KID YOU NOT, 24 HOURS STRAIGNT IN THE SW-SOFT AND 'INFRANT NAS' FORMS

    My semi success:
    -I can create a backup, and it sucessfully saves to the remote FTP server, HOWEVER, when the backup completes, plesk displayes no values for the following on the 'backup success' page, e.g.: Name Value: NOTHING, Comments: NOTHING, Creation date: Dec 31, 1969 04:00 PM, Name: NOTHING .... EVEN THOUGH the backup file does have these values on the remote FTP server
    -ALSO, the 'FTP repository page' doesn't display the successful backups, its just blank...always...which is weird, because when i enter another "ServerBeach" servers FTP info, everything works just fine.


    PLEASE HELP, HELP, HELP, IM AT MY WHITS END!!!!!!!:(
    -is this a problem because my remote FTP server is behind a residential cable modem?
    -Is this even possible in the first place?
    -What the heck am i doing wrong???????


    Thank you, and happy holidays;
    -Chris
