How to use backup to SSH?

I’m a bit lost as to how to use the backup to SSH option, and the documentation doesn’t explain it too well (well, at least for me).

I have a FreeNAS box on my LAN that I want to back up a local web server up to.

It has a share at /mnt/backups which I want to serve as the destination.

What do I need to input as the “backup file name” field on the Virtualmin side?

depending on if want to save all domains to a folder or to a single file.

First example above will create new date based folder each time and put all domain’s backups in it as separate files.
Example two will create a date based file in which all domains will be zipped, tar’d, bz’d. Or which ever extension you use.
