Syncronize a FTP server with a directory on a windows Machine

Hello everybody,

I need a free tool or a script to syncronize a HP-UX FTP server with a directory on a Windows 2003.
The syncronization must be done via FTP.

It would be great to be able to start it automatically.

Thanks in advance,
Stefan

You can try rsync.

Shalom Sefan

rsync is the tool.

Here is where to get it for HP-UX in depot format:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Networking/Admin/rsync-3.0.6/

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Networking/Admin/librsync-0.9.7/

Pay close attention to all the dependencies or it will install and not work.

Re: Syncronize a FTP server with a directory on a windows Machine

Hello again,

Thank for the answers so far.

I don't have root acces to that HP-UX remote server, so I would need a Windows script/tool that does the job.

"..., so I would need a Windows script/tool that does the job."

If that's the case (must be hosted on Windows), then I'd suggest this is not the correct forum. You might be better off trying the Windows forums instead.

Shalom,

Windows would need an ftp server that includes the target directory or a windows share with appropriate access.

You must have root access to install any software on the HP-UX server. There is no built in solution. In fact the only good solution is rsync, which requires root access to install.

Some people might say that asking for "a
Windows script/tool" in an HP-UX forum may
not be the optimal path to a solution.

and watch the fun ensue when you start running into file name collisions because windows doesn't really care about character case...at least not always
