Does windows have rsync?
You need:

* ssh access to the remote box
* an rsync binary (not a server) on the remote and local hosts
* enough privilege on the remote host to see the files you want

Thank you for your suggestion, but rsync will not do the trick, since files can change on both sides of the connection (remote side -- server side) and files can not only be changed but also deleted, moved, renamed. All this is taken proper care of by synchro tools like unison or the built-in XP solution, but are a real mess when using rsync.

Thanks anyway,

Stefan
