synchronising data

I have to find a solution to get data from two different location, to get update between them. i was thinking of using two ftp server and some way to be sure that the data are update every so often...

Is there a better way?
Would anybody suggest a soft to do that?

Have you had a look at rsync? It will keep two directories, HD's, whatever in sync. Maybe this wil do?

Here is a good how-to for doing just that, but over SSH for security. It is more geared towards user management, but the principles are the same if you want to use it to mirror directorys, HDDs, etc.

When a site is mirrored, how does that is done? Is there a sync between the site and the mirror site. I was thinking more like a ftp and a mirror ftp with limited access.

But maybe, i am going in the wrong direction...

As cnjohnson says, rsync is a good idea if you're looking to synchronize something. That's what is generally recomended. However, I haven't had any experience with this at all, so I can't really say. Please post back when you find what's best, as I'd be interested and my implement something similar.
