Looking 4 software to sync. between NT4

By achen2002 ·
I am looking for a software to sync. 2 specific folders between NT4 servers.

2 NT4 servers located in different citys are connected through VPN, so the protocal this software uses can go through either internet or just within our internal network.

It must be smart enough to sync. deletion and addition instead of "just copy the files from server A to server B".

This is for some critical database so is extremely important not to have mistake such as missing / redundant file. Assuming the connection is good, there are no file running / being opened, when this software does the job, there should be no error at all.


Whoever provides infomation and link of the software u suggest, I'll review it very carefully.

After I decidethis is what I am looking for, I'll release the points to you.

This process is called "replication" -- you don't need anything beyond NT Server and a constant reliable connection.

I need to sync. regular folders which are accessed by some other software and not messing up with the logon script folder.

This must be working seprately from the NETLOGON stuff and unfortunately, "replication" is not allowing me to create task for any other folder to do that.

NT includes a directory replication service.
The basic steps to set this up are.

1) Enable the service on both servers
2) configure the service to start automatically and provide the appropriate account information
3) configure export and import parameters as needed (control panel, server, replication).

If you start to do this to a large number of systems then it really eats up bandwidth, but for just two servers you should be ok unless you have a VERY slow connection.

Dear wmr,

I wish the directory replication service to take care of Logon script path only, I don't even sure that I can add a second task to sync. other folders in this service.

If it can't handle more than one task, I wish to find a third party program to do this for me.

And I also wish this program has the schedule function.

If you are looking for a program that will work over a network and enable you to synchronize the contents of a folder on one NT server with the contents of another folder on a different NT server then perhaps FolderMatch (shareware program) is what you are looking for. It will even allow CRC comparisons as well as standard date/time.
I have used this program to synchronize CAD drawings between two NT servers over a WAN link and have been pleased with performance as well as accuracy.
Try the link below:
