Install A, then B very minimal and rsync them (port: net/rsync). This assumes a network between the two with different ip addresses :) > Is there a port / application that enables this? Pending your needs, you could try sysutils/heartbeat. But for periodical syncs, rsync should do fine. The tricky part will be /etc/rc.conf, since you'll need to differentiate the IP's. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
