Hi there

I'm searching for a tool that gives me the possibility to sync a remote located file on a FTP server with a desktop computer.
it should be command line based and able to compare files with the same name without downloading the whole file first.

the tool should be executable on a windows2000/xp host

and best of: it has to be freeware

a scheduler would be a nice bonus


I came about some tools but none fit my needs.


any suggestions?



thank you in advance

If you have SSH access, you can try WinSCP:

@NAORC: thx but the sync function isnt free :-(

@Pryach: thx but in this case I can't handle the keyfile issue - it has to be pure FTP - sorry

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

thx - I've allready had alook at rsync

there's one fact I forgot: the synchronizer could get into a state where it could be published - so I'm rather not keen on auotmating compiling actions for an automated installation


but thanks

Super Flexible File Synchronizer works great and has command line options.
You can run from scheduler, as a service, or form a batch file.

has to be freeware (best GNU) in order to distribution or publishing issues
