Auto FTP to NAS Drive

How do I automate an ftp transfer from my seedbox to my Synology NAS box?

You need to SSH to your seedbox and create the rclone remote point for your FTP NAS box. Afterwards, you need to create a bash script that will offload content from a certain path of your seedbox towards a destination path at the FTP remote point.
You must place that script at "~/.local/bin/" path.
Finally, you need to create a cronjob for the script (e.g. run automatically twice per day).
Beware that there are some limitations for rclone ftp .

If you need assistance, please create the rclone remote point and then open a support ticket from your client area, stating the action (copy/move) you want to perform, as well as the exact source/destination paths and we will gladly create the script and cronjob for you.
