I'm looking for a open source software to synchronize two folders in a Private Network (or a VPN) in a continuous/transparent way. Like DropBox, for exemple, but without the server aspects.

I found plethora of software that allowed to do that manually (or to planned it with a basic scheduler) This is not what i'm looking for.

Thanx for your eventual answers.

what OS are you running on these servers? – daya Jan 11 '12 at 14:43

Some external hard drives that have network connectivitity can be configured in such a way. This is a Western Digital Example As long as the client can access the hard drive(VPN/LAN), the data can be synced using software(WDSmartWare from Western Digital). Works well for me but upload speed can be a bottleneck
