You can use FTP or FTPS.  Server Backup cannot archive to SFTP, Active FTP, or implicit FTPS.
*Account Type: File Transfer Protocol (FTP)*
* Fill out the following fields in the _Account Type_ section:
** *Host*: The FTP server URL.
** *Port*: The FTP server port.
** *Use SSL*: Select this check box if you want to apply SSL encryption.
** *Path*: The directory path to the folder on the FTP server that will act as the archive storage repository.
** *Username*: Username for the FTP server.
** *Password*: Password for the FTP server.
** *Confirm Password*: Confirm the FTP server password.
* Click the *Test Connection* button to authenticate the FTP server credentials.
* Click *Add* to create the Cloud Storage Account.

*Account Type: Amazon Glacier*

Follow these steps to create a Cloud Storage Account that will back up to an Amazon Glacier vault:
* Select *Amazon Glacier* from the _Account Type_ drop-down menu. Follow the process below for configuring the additional *Account Type* fields with the requisite details from your Amazon Glacier account:
** *Vault*: The name of the Amazon Glacier vault to which the disk safe will be backed up. This is the Amazon vault name that appears on the _Amazon Glacier Vaults{_}page of your AWS account.
** *End Point*: For this field, you will enter the Amazon-generated URL that will connect the SBM appliance to the Amazon Glacier API. This URL is based on the data center region specified when you set up your Amazon Glacier account. Follow these steps to determine the End Point URL:
*** Determine your Glacier vault region (for example: _US West (Oregon)_. The vault region is displayed in the _Details_ tab of the *Amazon Glacier Vaults* page.
*** Go to the [Amazon Glacier table|] on the AWS website and locate your vault region in the _Endpoint_ column.

*** Use either the _http_ or _https_ prefix and enter the URL from the Amazon _Endpoint_ column in the *End Point* field. For example, if your region is US West (Oregon), you would enter _[ or _ in]_ _the _End Point_ field.
*** *Access Key*: Amazon Web Services' _Access Key ID_ is created from the _My Security Credentials_ page of your AWS account. You will need to create this key (and the Secret Access Key associated with it) to complete this step.
*** From the AWS home page, click on your account name in the toolbar and select *My Security Credentials* from the drop-down menu.
*** On the _Your Security Credentials_ page, expand the *Access Keys (Access Key ID and Secret Access Key)* section.
*** Click on *Create New Access Key*.
*** Expand the *Show Access Key* link. Copy/paste the Access Key ID from the Amazon page to the _New Cloud Storage Account/Account Type_/*{_}Access Key{_}{*}field on the SBM appliance.
  !C247_LTA_AccessKey_1072x328.png|border=1!\*\* *Secret Key*: Copy/paste the Secret Access Key value from the Amazon page to the _Account Type/_{*}{_}Secret Key{_}* field.
**  *Important*: Your Secret Access Key is only visible when it is first created and cannot be recalled once you navigate away from the _Create Access Key_ page. To store the Secret Access Key for later use, download the key to a .csv file by clicking on the *Download Key File* button.
** *Confirm Secret Key*. Re-enter the AWS Secret Access Key.
* *Owner*: Designate the SBM appliance user who will be the owner of the Cloud Storage Account.
* Click *Add* to create the Cloud Storage Account.
