Does anyone know a free, real-time file replication tool similar to RepliWeb R1?

I would like to suggest rsync and some scripting as a solution.
But, then there could be some downsides and effort as I read at this post about RepliWeb from a user: How one tool solved all 5 risks.

So, if you want freeware and you are ready for some 'risks' (correctly comparing them to how critical your deployment is), rsync might still be a good base tool.

As an example,
Warsync (Wrapper Around Rsync) is a perl based server replication system mainly used to sync servers in LVS clusters. It is based on rsync over ssh and has native support for Debian package synchronization.

Thanks. I will investigate. – DWong Feb 4 '10 at 19:41
+1 For the excellent replication blog/article. I'm still digging into rsync to see if that will work, but like you said, it comes with some risks. If no-one posts a better alternative by the end of the week, I'll accept your answer. – DWong Feb 9 '10 at 0:29
