I need to set up a mirror between two Unix servers. Basically, there a specific folder and all its sub-folders on one server I want mirrored on the other, but I only want files of a certainl type (.xls) to be mirrored. I also want to make sure that any changes made to the original (new subfolders or .xls files) show up on the mirror. Can anyone recommend any utilities or other methods to accomplish this?
