Question Software for synchronizing files on web servers

I've been looking for a way to automatically synchronize files between web servers. I know rsync exists but it isn't an option because rsync is not available on one of the servers. Is there some other software I could use for this task?

Perhaps I could set up an automated task to update files over ssh. If anyone has had experience with this or know of another way to complete this task please help. Thanks.

Before I started using rsync, I used lftp and its "mirror" option. It's a scriptable ftp client that also has SSH capabilities (although I don't know if you can sync with SSH like you can with rsync.) lftp also allows you to mirror either your local box or the server (reverse mirror) and there is an option to include/exclude files, similar to rsync.
