I'm trying to get an automatic FTP remote Cpanel backup through an API I got directly from Cpanel official site. It starts but then log shows an error:

Hello oldleg5,

In researching the error message, it seems to have to do with the passive mode in the connection. Try turning the passive mode off and reconnecting.
