Backup over FTP


Due to a catastrophic hardware failure, I have decided to retire one of our Novell servers that was used to mirror our main Novell server. I would like to replace it with Linux to make it a little more flexible. However, I can mirror the Novell server twice a day to Linux via FTP, but how can I have it only transfer the modified files. Basically I want rsync style mirroring via FTP.

Can anyone recommend a program that can do this through FTP?

As usual, I was just approaching this from the wrong side. With a small kernel reconfiguration to turn on NCPfs and IPX, I can mount Netware volumes to the Linux backup server via cron and use anything Linux offers to pull the modified files over. This way I get out of using FTP altogether.
