FTP Backup Username Problem

    I'm trying to setup a filesystem backup in webmin to an FTP server. I am provided this FTP server via my dedicated server provider and the username is my hostname of the server…so is in this format    jk678564.provider.com

    Webmin doesn't seem to like the 'dots' in the username…is there a way round this?

    Thank you

    Did you get a fix for this?

    I have a similar problem where my ftp username is my email and the config rejects the username with a @.

    Thanks, Jason
