Unison File Synchronizer
Unison comes in two flavors:
- Text mode only version (debian package name: unison)
- GTK-based graphical version (debian package name: unison-gtk)
Unison can sync
- between two directory trees on the same computer or
- between directory trees on two separate machines.
For syncing desktop machine and neo we use the latter. The recommended way to do this is the remote shell method: We start unison or unison-gtk on the desktop pc. The program will connect to the neo via ssh an start a text-only unison on the neo to retrieve new files or deltas and to modify files on the neo.
