<H2>NAME</H2>

ftpmirror - Mirroring directory hierarchy using FTP protocol
<A NAME="lbAC">&nbsp;</A>
<H2>SYNOPSIS</H2>

<B>ftpmirror</B>

[<I>package</I>]

<A NAME="lbAD">&nbsp;</A>
<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2>




<B>ftpmirror</B> is an utility to copy directory hierarchy (usually
called 'mirror') using FTP protocol.
<P>

A similar perl script exists, whose name is 'mirror',
but ftpmirror requires less memory than mirror.
<A NAME="lbAE">&nbsp;</A>
<H2>OPTIONS</H2>

Traditionally ftpmirror mirroring operation was MASTER-&gt;SLAVE but since version 1.96 the SLAVE-&gt;MASTER (reverse mirror) is supported.
<BR>

This behaviour can be controlled for each package section in the main configuration file (/etc/ftpmirror/ftpmirror.cf).
<P>

MASTER-&gt;SLAVE  --&gt; get-mode = yes (default)
<BR>

SLAVE-&gt;MASTER  --&gt; put-mode = yes
<A NAME="lbAF">&nbsp;</A>
<H2>EXAMPLES</H2>

<B>ftpmirror</B>

provides a 'ready-to-use' sample package for testing porpouses. In order to run the provided test package you need to issue the following commands (both commands must be run by the same user):
<P>

mkdir -p /tmp/upstream
<BR>

/usr/bin/ftpmirror upstream
<P>

This package should copy directory hierarchy from the original author's FTP location (<A HREF="ftp://ftp.intec.co.jp/pub/utils/ftpmirror/">ftp://ftp.intec.co.jp/pub/utils/ftpmirror</A>) to your local hard drive (/tmp/upstream)
<A NAME="lbAG">&nbsp;</A>
<H2>SEE ALSO</H2>

For other supported configuration options see /etc/ftpmirror/ftpmirror.cf where you will find commented examples.
