Windows sync folder over ftp
On linux we have
rsync wich can do everything. On windows there is not bad
robocopy but it can not copy files over ftp.
Windows shares are closed for public networks and only possible way is to use VPN to connect to local network and only then you can use
robocopy to sync files between machines.
But if, for some reasons, you can not use VPN there is another way to synchronize folder between computers via FTP.
Just install build in IIS FTP server or any other FTP server and configure it.
Download and install WinSCP. I used protable version wich contains only two executable files.
option batch abort option confirm off open ftp://username:[email protected] synchronize local "%USERPROFILE%\Music" "/Music" close exit
WinSCP.com /script=pull.txt PAUSE
option batch abort option confirm off open ftp://username:[email protected] synchronize remote "%USERPROFILE%\Music" "/Music" close exit
WinSCP.com /script=push.txt PAUSE
Both scripts will not delete any files - only synchronize new one. But if you want to delete files use
-delete switch like this:
synchronize local -delete "%USERPROFILE%\Music" "/Music"

synchronize command go to: http://winscp.net/eng/docs/scriptcommand_synchronize
Notice here that i'm using
WinSCP.com wich is command line client for
Also notice how
remote used to determine direction of synchronization.
