Looking at file replication options


Here's what I would like to do:
I have a server at one office, and a server at another office. I want to replicated date bidirectionally between the two servers. I can deal with up to a 5 minute delay between the syncs for data (small files; 65K average). I looked at DRBD, but from my understanding it's only single direction unless the master goes offline.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks.

Unison

I second the use of Unison. I have it set up to replicate and repeat, without user input. I've also set up a cron to make sure it's still running and to email me, if it goes down (with the result of the attempt to restart).

Let me know if you'd like some help.

Good luck.
