Need a openfile being synchronized?


Hello all,
I have a requirement from client that I have a NFS Server where an open file is present.What I need is if I write anything in that file, that file content should get synchronized at the other end.Means it should show whatever I had written in NFSServer:Filename1 to NFSClient:Filename1. Its no issue if it write after 1 and 1/2 minutes but the file should get updated at the other end.
Any idea how gonna it be possible?

I tried out unison. And it does update the contents changed in first machine to the second machine.
But anyone who can help me with how can I automate the process.
I don't want to run manually and make changes.It want the changes in one file in a host reflect immediately in other host file

I don't need Clustering stuffs here.
Though thanks for your suggestions.
All I have tried with rsync - a Very Powerful tool it seems.
All tried with:

Code:
Server1:

$ping localhost > /opt/first1

$fuser -v /opt/first1

it showed that file is busy with username
$touch /opt/first2

Server1: 
rsync -v /opt/first1 /opt/first2

It went well.
Done.
