The admin picks a folder on a hard drive on the server with the option to create multiple virtual directories on the server.
The client is installed on a client machine. Profiles manage the backup jobs on the client machine. This is the place where the user selects the files and folders that should be backed up regularly. The patht to the backup server will be entered during that configuration phase also. The server can be identified by entering the IP or hostname of the server running the backup software.
there is simple authentication possibility. This has to be enabled during server setup and the client computer has to use the same login credentials that have been created on the server to be able to perform the backup.
