    Default Ftp application with an option to upload only modified files

    Hello!
    I am searching for ftp application with an option to upload only modified files.
    I am using OpenSuse 12.2 and was searching for such functionality for Filezilla but saw that they don't give such functionality and are not going to do so.
    Does someone knows of a solution for such problem? I mean some other application or some combination of tools ...
    Thanks in advance : ]

    Unless it really has to be ftp, rsync does the task you want.

    Dolphin does that. SImply tell it to copy over everything, and when prompted for tell it to autoskip identical or newer files. Can't imagine though that Fz won't do that.

    if you use firefox, give the extension named FireFTP (v 2.0.10) a
    try, it has a sysc function that has what you seek

    by the way, if you are a KDE user you might try using Dolphin, it
    does ftp but i dont know if it updates only..

    I use "unison". It will copy in both directions to keep on both sides
    the more recent version.

    If it has to be FTP, several FTP client will compare both sides and
    upload only what has changed on a directory. Not automatically, though,
    meaning, as in a script.
