  • possible to auto sync car with home via 802.11?

    Is is possible to setup my carputer's 802.11g connection to automatically synchronise with specific folders on my home computer when the 2 networks connect? For example, when I pull into my garage?

    I can think of 30 differant ways to do this with a *nix system but not a single way using windows.
    Anyone know of an rsync type program for windows?

        Linky. I have this set up on my CarPC to check my home PC every 5 mins, so at most it will have to wait 5 mins before trying to sync

          Seems like it will get the job done. Downloading now. That site has got some decent looking software. Also grabbing the Directory Printer. Will probably do a better job than me using a DOS command line to make a text file to print...

                  You can check out the offline files feature of windows xp pro, if you are using that os. I have also used a program in the past called syncra file, but it looks like the developer isn't around any more, though you can download the shareware version....

                          first off my note about xp - http://wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,63705,00.html

                          you could always write a program youtrself to do it at startup, or you could script it many ways. either way just setup a ftp server on your main puter, or a http server, whatever floats your boat, then script it to auto download. i am writeing software now that will eb able to do this automatically.
