My schedule backup to our FTP server fails with the following error message

"user name contains illegal characters. Package was not transferred"

Any idea ?

Without much information, I have one question. Does your username contain illegal characters?

Try using SCP? There are also "known" issues with the backup command, which have been fixed with HFAs.

Try using SCP?

Indeed, transferring your security information via plaintext is daft.
