I have gotten pretty used to the
-c option with rsync which will compare the checksum of the files to see if there are changes instead of relying on times. Unfortunately there are a couple projects i work on where i cant use rsync because there is no SSH access to the server and must use FTP.
Is there a Mac or *nix client (that i can compile of OS X) that supports this kind of synchronization option? And bonus points if it will take an rsync style exclude file for things that shouldnt be touched.
I have tried mounting
ftpfs with FUSE as well as ExpanDrive, but they are just dead slow (some times a dry run of a fairly modest project can take 30 minutes).
