folder synch Xpee <-> FC6

Post by cdhgold »

I have a folder on an XPee system that I need a way to do a scheduled synch to a corresponding folder on my FC6 system. Can anyone suggest how to do this on an automated basis? the windoze folder is shared and accessible to the FC6 box via an smb://share on the same private network that uses a user name and password

You can mount the share to a specific folder with # mount -t smbfs \\xphost\folder /mnt/xp
and then use rsync to synchronize the your folder on FC6 to /mnt/xp.

...not sure if my slashes go the right way for smb shares?

Yeah, I would probably go MoR's route. You will need to flip the slashes over though and I would also suggest looking into the cifs file system type. rsync does a great job of syncing files and directories whether they be remote or local. In fact there might even be a Windows version of rsync and you could run the rsync daemon on the Linux box. No need to mount anything then. I personally rsync through ssh connections between Linux boxes (cygwin might also be an option to get all of the utilities on your Windows box).
