    Hi,
    I'm using FTP in 3cx to keep safe a weekly backup of all my customers. it works fine but for now in V14 SP2 TLS is not supported in backup and restore menu ,

    will it be possible to add it to 3CX for a future SP ?

    Thanks
    Best regards

    +1, would really be nice to have FTP over TLS supported.
    Plain FTP is deprecated and absolutely discouraged.
    Should be quite easy to add the TLS layer.
    Many thanks 3CX dev team !

    I just voted for this feature, thx !

    SFTP(ssh) would also be a good protocol for this, as most servers, nas devices, etc, offer it. And the linux builds already have openssh installed on them anyway, so all they would need to do is implement it.

    +1 - I can't believe that in this day and age, an insecure ftp protocol is being used.

    I would like to have SFTP as a backup transport option, also.

    Voted too. Makes no sense to do this via FTP. I would like SFTP implemented.

    There should be plenty of libraries to code these SFTP and FTPS features in the blink of an eye.

    +1 this should be available in GUI

    Meanwhile, for the shell-savy: It's possible to mount FTPS/SFTP remote locations so that they appear like a normal folder in Linux. Search for curlftpfs, sshfs, gvfsd, fuse, gigolo. There are plenty of options, but this should still be available to users who don't want to modify files provided in the official 3CX ISO.

    +1 I'm also very surprised that SFTP is not supported. We have a lot of cloud systems that we would like automatic offsite backups for. I'm very leary of using FTP over the web nowadays... Especially considering the sensitivity of the info within the 3CX backups!
