IPfire Backup Question

Post by Boschko » April 10th, 2019, 3:48 pm

Is it possible to back up your IPfire firewall using Acronis cloud backup? Will it support this type of linux distro/version? have you guys done this before?

If not how do you go about backing up your firewall? What do you guys do?

Thank you very much!

Have a look to the Wiki: https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/system/backup
I have already read thoes before posting.

I want to know if you can use Acronis to do backups is IPfire supported since we dont really know what Distro it uses

See https://www.ipfire.org/features : "IPFire is built from scratch and not based on any other distribution."

Or here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPFire

What problem are you going to boil down by using Acronis? For my purposes, an occasional backup through the WUI is perfect, since I don't reconfigure my IPFire on a daily basis at all...
