Question non r-command replacement for rdist?


Anyone know of a tool that I can use to replace rdist? I don't wan't to use any r-commands.

I am currently trying to hack out something that combines ssh with another utility that will accomplish this task.

Got a good hack you're already using?

Time to throw out rdist?

In my opinion, this utility allows a much finer control over synchronization, uses ssh, and if you want to use the feature, it even has a gui, but nonetheless works well at the command line and in shell scripts.

I use it to maintain synchronicity between various things (themes, config files, fonts etc) on /usr/local between two machines (Debian and Redhat)
