Thread: Is this rsync scenario?

  1. #1

    Default Is this rsync scenario?

    Dear all,
    I would like to ask you how I can do something in linux... I am not sure if this is a rsync application.

    I am having a server which I access with ssh (and when I need file browser I also fish:/ of konqueror). There there is a process that updates periodically 100 files (file names same constant)...

    In my local system I only selected 10 of those and I want to periodically updating these 10 with their latest version at the ssh server. If I do a "pure" copy I will have then to search in my local directory for the 90 of those, which I do not need, and remove them which is time consuming.

    Would it be possible to update with some command line only these 10 copies? How I can do that? What is the right program (that can probably work access with ssh remote content).

    I would like to thank you in advance for your reply

    B.R

    Could you describe in detail how you would do this manually? rsync can
    be used to update files periodically but it needs to know what to update
    somehow... either via a list on the command line, a directory with
    everything the same way, or an input file listing what should be copied.
    Telepathy is not a module available for rsync yet afaik.

    Good luck.

    I guess rsync could be used but it seems like overkill. It will be more
    complicated to set up. Why not just list the filenames on the
    command-line when copying? And put that command in a script.
