I've been swearing a lot lately while trying to do
database mirroring between US and UK. I think most people
now realize fairly serious overload problem that has
developed for cross-Atlantic Internet services.
The software I'm using is the 'mirror' perl package
by Lee McLoughlin, at
ftp to src.doc.ic.ac.uk [220.127.116.11]
That seems to do what I need, and is the most widely used
package I would guess for databank mirroring by FTP. I haven't
used it enough to be on solid ground, but it looks like
it will do the work painlessly once you configure it properly.
