When you are ove a tunnel such as vpn connection, you can use it in daemon mode on one side and rsync to or from that side on the other side. Sounds like server/client application.

Looks like rf has 3.0.7, thanks for that tip. Frankly, I abhor the thought
of even using rsync for this, it's over a vpn so there is absolutely no need
for encryption but I don't know another tool that can transfer diffs only?
Thanks guys,
