When activated the Onlinebackup service in your Citycloud controlpanel:

Follow the steps below to get started with onlinebackup on your client xxx.u1470

Step 1: Download the installer

In the list to the right you find the software to install on the computer you want to backup. Click on the download link next to the operating system that you use. If you can't find your operating system, please contact us and we will try to help.

Step 2: Install the backup client

When you install the client you will be asked to specify your OnlineBackup ID. Here you enter: xxx.u1470.

Step 3: Verify the backup client

When the installation of the backup client is finished, it's time to verify the client against the backup server. Start a web browser and enter the address to the clients backup GUI in the address bar. If you have installed the client on a Windows based operating system, you can double click on the OnlineBackup icon in the traybar. On other operating systems you need to manually enter the address in the web browser.
By default the GUI listens on port 6060. In the browser address bar you enter the IP or hostname to the computer where you installed the client, followed by port 6060. Example: If you have installed the client on the same computer where you run the web browser, you enter http://localhost:6060.
If you entered the correct address, you will see a login window for OnlineBackup. Here you enter the username and password that you chose when you installed the client. If you didn't choose a login during the installation the login by default will be admin / admin. Remember to use good password to prevent unwanted access. You can change the login inside the backup GUI. (Settings -> Users)

The first time you login, you will be asked to verify the client. Choose the backup server from the drop down menu and in the password field you enter your unique customer pass key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
