SSH support

Post by chuckthorne »

I have been looking around for a way to have a Windows box send transfers over ssh and it seems to me that a simple solution for encrypted transfers is to us ssh. That way we don't have to make 2 runs,or try to install a tunnel, more load on the system and it can be encrypted. As much open source ssh that is out and about, how hard can it be. Who is with me on having ssh and scp on SyncbacSE at least. I have doctors offices that would like to have off site backups, but to run 2 routines and then send the file up is a bit much. Most of the backup servers I am now using are Linux based and for the most part use ssh.

Hi, SyncBackPro has SFTP support (and FTPS). That allows for files to be transferred fully encrypted (they are not stored encrypted at the other end, just transferred encrypted).
