Re: [gftp] gFTP as a mirroring tool

That's not true. Rsync does not require an rsync server on either machine.
It can use SSH as the transport instead. From the manpage:
I was looking for a tool able to mirror a remote folder via ssh.
What's interesting, I didn't find one! gFTP seems to be the only thing
able to do this (AFAIK, rsync -e ssh needs to have a remote rsync server
There are eight different ways of using rsync. They are:
o for copying from the local machine to a remote machine using a remote
shell program as the transport (such as rsh or ssh). This is invoked when
the destination path contains a single : separator.
o for copying from a remote machine to the local machine using a remote
shell program. This is invoked when the source contains a : separator.
rsync -a --delete user@remotehost:/source/path /local/dest/path
rsync -a --delete /local/source/path user@remotehost:/dest/path
I use rsync for this all the time.
