Ok, so have been using Duplicity with the ftp backend. Now I have to switch to a different ftp server. The username on the new server has an address@hidden symbol in it and I have no control over this. This makes the connection url something like ftp://address@hidden@ftp.company.com -- I think this is breaking duplicity. I took a look at the backend.py file and it would appear that it won’t parse correctly for this kind of string. I am really not a python programmer but am familiar with a number of other languages.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to handle this situation? I am not familiar with the ftplib so I wanted to check to see if someone was familiar with how the Duplicity code interacted with it before I started trying to change anything.

Try escaping it with a backslash or enclosing that part in quotes.
