What is a script or commands I can input to make the contents of a folder on 1 Red Hat Linux Enterprise server go to another RH linux server every hour, and replace the current contents with the newer updated contents?

Thank you!!

I would use Rsync of SSH:


rsync -a --progress --update -e 'ssh -p 2222' /path/to/folder user@remote:/path/to/folder

Of course you will also need to set up SSH keys to use rsync over SSH without entering a password.
