cannot connect to server with encrypt on
I have a server (Server C) at our DR location that we are looking to use as the warm standby for log shipping. I have installed SQL Backup remotely over the same connection that will support the data transfer. Backup history and activity has been imported so the connection is working fine. However, when I select Edit | Options | Encrypt Connection the server gets a red cross on its icon and the timeline shows no further refreshes.
Server B is on our local network and has had SQL Backup installed and working for months. Some of these backups use encryption and full compression to transport a copy of the backup up the a file share on Server C. These jobs work without fail.
I have not yet registered the SQL Backup installation on Server C, is encryption disabled until the software is activated? If not, can you please advise what might be preventing me from enabling encryption on the actual server connection please?
