I am on Solaris and I need to sync a directory path with a ftp server. Unfortunately a large part is made up with links which do not work with the script which uses a rsync-like mechanism. Does anyone know an alternative with rsync style synchronisation via ftp which works with links?

We use mirror ( ) to mirror a number of ftp sites around the world. This copes with symbolic links. I am unsure if this meets your 'rsync style synchronisation' requirement.
