Synchronization Software


I am looking software that will synchronize data from 1 directory on 1 server to a directory on another server.  Is there any software that does this?

The "rsync" is the right tool to use, the trick is that you need to copy the date from your souce server, in your case use tape or CD, transfer the files to your target server, then run rsync to
sync the 2 dirs.

the options to use for rsync:
               /usr/local/bin/rsync --delete -az .........

Rsync is the right tool for the job; however, I would suggest tunneling it over ssh. Something similar to the following:

rsync somdir/ -ave ssh remoteserver:/remotedir

Hope this helps.
