I'd like to backup my $HOME to my local NAS using CIFS ("Samba", "Windows"), WebDAV, SSH or FTP. I don't care which one (or should I care? My NAS (Synology DS212) supports all).
I've made somce screenshots available; they might help to understand what I did. At least I hope so… ☺
In the Déjà Dup settings, I entered the details as shown on the screenshot; it translates to the following custom location:
When I then try to start a backup, I just see a screen which says:
Backup location not available
Waiting for a network connection …
What I'm missing is the prompt for the password. Is that the issue? The directory
/home/Sicherung/DejaDup exists on my local FTP server
172.17.2.3 for my user
a; see this screenshot of the FTP session on my pictures.
