Bonjour, Mssr. Frenchnoob,

This question was just asked (this very exact question) as I recall about a week or so ago. If you check through the "recent Posts" for the past 7 - 14 days, I'm sure you will find it, complete with a few script example.
If you cannot locate it, say so and I will try to find the thread. If you DO find it, kindly link this thread to it so others can find it too!

A simple answer, rsync can do this for you.

I would use unison rather than rsync. rsync is great for going in one direction, unison is designed when for when changes go in both directions.
