Great utility FTPSync
« on: March 09, 2010, 04:24:13 AM »
I'm discovered the following gem to automatically sync my coding changes to a test server over ftp. This utility uses ini files to configure source and destination then sync any changes after running it. Just add it to post-commit hook with subversion or mercurial.  :-* Great documentation
Quote
Synchronize two FTP sites or local directories. FTPSync is useful for updating your home page or corporate web site, maintaining an off-site backup, maintaining web site mirrors, etc.

Main features
    * supports UNIX, Microsoft, IBM and Novell type FTP servers
    * only new or changed files are transferred
    * console type application that can be easily executed from various schedulers and batch files
    * FTPSync is intended for computer experts - it has no user interface, so users must know how to edit standard Windows INI files. Synchronization can be configured on the fly from batch files or other applications, making it a convenient tools when sync authomation is required.
    * Brandable version available for bundling with other products.

WinSCP has a really nice sync function in its GUI. Also available from Portable Apps. Has been the best FTP sync for me so far (most of the others I did not like at all).
