Backup files to ftp server


Im pretty new to linux and is looking for an easy way to synchronize folders from my locale fedora to my storage at via ftp - and have it done every night.

As far as i can read rsync is suited for the backup part, but not for doing the ftp to my remote storage.

Does anyone have a suggestion to how this can be done?

Best regards

There's a short tutorial for doing something like this at Once you have the ftp working, you can add it to cron and have it run automatically.
