rrjegan17,
the link refers to how to add the ftp when using the one of the windows server that hosts the db, what I need is on remote ftp not the one hosting the db server.

In order to use an FTP server for Snapshot folder, you need to configure it from Windows server that hosts DB and not on the Remote FTP server.
Can you kindly clarify your exact requirements.
