Create a Firebird Database Mirror

Dear Experts...

We have linux server running Firebird 1.5.5 and we would like to sync all databases to another server running firebird same version. This is for disaster recover. Whats the best way to do the Job ? I can use Rsync ?

Any clues will be very apreciated....

no you cannot use rsync unless you shutdown firebird first, if you copy a database while it is in use you are likely to get a corrupt copy and may corrupt the master copy.
you can either take a backup and restore that onto the second machine or you need to use some form of replication
