to sync files from network to linux laptop


I am a system admin and i am working with linux laptop. I want that when I connect linux laptop to the network, it should automatically synchronize files such as /etc/passwd, /etc/hosts etc with the network.

Is there any way to do so?

Distro? :)

There's always the startup-scripts,
and there's most likely rsync...

Congrats to the job, btw, with little
knowledge of the system and such ;)

Hello Henry_1,

The exact feature for this, is to use 'rsync'. This utility keeps the network overload low by only updating the changed data, if you are syncing after the first time. The above idea to use the start-up scripts or to write a simple script for yourself and run it by cron would be a nice idea.
