SQL Backup issue

My memory tells me that your SQL Backup tool used to have options for setting up log shipping over FTP (rather than a file share). I no longer see any references to that in your product description. Has that feature been removed in version 7, or am I just not seeing it?

My need, simply put, is to log ship SQL data between a local server and one running on a different domain in a remote, VM environment. We can't set it up to use a UNC path for transferring the transaction log backup files, so we're thinking FTP. I could probably build my own custom mechanism to do this, but would rather use a tried and true method with a tool like SQL Backup. If your tool no longer supports this functionality, can you recommend an alternative?

    Thank you for your forum post.

    SQL Backup has never included an option to copy files over ftp.

    However, there is a free unsupported stand-alone FTP Copy Tool available using this LINK, if you wish to investigate further. The FTP Copy Tool, is not supported by Redgate Support Team and you use it at your own risk. I recommend that you review the readme file supplied within the zip archive before configuring the tool.

    Many Thanks
