|Description:||Synchronize filesystems between hosts (2.6.9-1)|
rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. (Description taken from the www.freshmeat.net listing of rsync)
