I am using rsync to copy the delta difference between the 2 systems. I want to use it in such a way it "synchronizes" the both systems based on the timestamps. I mean to say if suppose I do rsync Host A to Host B. And some one modifies the file i.e being sent in Host B.In host A also some change may occur. Now if i rsync from Host A to Host B i wish to have a synchrony such that the file gets transferred to Host A the difference created by host b and also the it should get transferred to Host B the difference made. Is there any command?

Is it possible? Kindly reply, Thank u Sindhu
