NAME

       ftpmirror - Mirroring directory hierarchy using FTP protocol

SYNOPSIS

       ftpmirror [package]

DESCRIPTION

       ftpmirror  is  an  utility  to copy directory hierarchy (usually called
       'mirror') using FTP protocol.

       A similar perl script exists, whose name  is  'mirror',  but  ftpmirror
       requires less memory than mirror.

OPTIONS

       Please,  note  that  the  original  documentation  about  ftpmirror was
       written originally in japanese. (README.jis and RELEASE.jis)

       If you can contribute by translating any aspect of these files,  please
       contact  Dario  Minnucci <debian@midworld.net>. I'll be glad to include
       your contributions here to improve this manual.

       Formerly ftpmirror operatio mode was MASTER->SLAVE but seems that since
       version 1.96 the SLAVE->MASTER (reverse mirror) is supported.

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

       MASTER->SLAVE  --> get-mode = yes (default)
       SLAVE->MASTER  --> put-mode = yes

EXAMPLES

       ftpmirror  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):

       mkdir -p /tmp/upstream
       /usr/bin/ftpmirror upstream

       This package should copy directory hierarchy from the original author's
       FTP  location (ftp://ftp.intec.co.jp/pub/utils/ftpmirror) to your local
       hard drive (/tmp/upstream).

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION

       The  inclusion  of  this  configuration  is   intended   to   be   used
       ocassionally.  Please don't abuse this site.
