GNU FTPsync

GNU FTPsync is a shell tool for syncronizing a local file or directory with a file or directory on an ftp-server. The idea is similar to rsync but uses the ftp-protocol.

Downloading GNU FTPsync

GNU FTPsync can be found on the main GNU ftp server: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/ftpsync/ (via HTTP) and ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/ftpsync/ (via FTP). It can also be found on the GNU mirrors; please use a mirror if possible.
