Can ATI 2017 be used to back up to a remote NAS?

Currently, I back up my 2 PCs to a NAS which is located on my local network.  I can access the NAS remotely from anywhere - obviously!

I now have a 3rd PC installed at a remote location.  Is it possible to use ATI to backup to the same NAS?

You would need to use FTP to do any backup to your NAS remotely and should use password encryption as ATI does not support Secure FTP.  You may need to modify your broadband router firewall / port-forwarding settings if your NAS is on a NAT local network (using network address translation).

FTP will split any large backup files into 2GB segments and will be slower across an internet connection.
