This article documents how to use SFTP with Multi-OS FLR. This may be performed when the native Backup Browser is slow to react to folder changes or when use of a third-party tool such as rsync is desired.
Please note version Veeam Backup & Replication 184.108.40.2067 through 220.127.116.118 are not compatible with this method. Update 2 for v8 must be installed. http://www.veeam.com/updates.html
