duplicity, backup to ftp and specifying a user name
I am attempting to use duplicity to store backups at a remote site
The ftp user name is email@example.com. I do not have control over this
name. Simply using someuser will not work.
If I tell duplicity to use:
duplicity seems to not be able to parse the hostname properly and can't
even connect to the remote server. If I try:
I get an error about failed security:
duplicity.backends.BackendException: (-2, 'Name or service not known')
I don't see any way to specify a ftp user name through an environment
Does anyone have a way around this, short of my storing the backups
locally and using ncftp to copy them to the remote site?
