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 ftpsync.pl 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 ( http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/utils/archivers/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.
