Hi Bjoern, thank you for the reply, I am not quite sure why you don't
support ftp (mirror.pl) anymore, it is still very widely used, in fact all
our other mirrors make use of it ?

I have installed rsync. I am not sure of the syntax ? Where do I now mirror
from ? I used to use ftp.apache.org

What else do I sustitute in this line ?

rsync -rtvz --delete --exclude incoming dev.apache.org::apache-site
/spool/ftp/pub/apache

http://www.apache.org/info/how-to-mirror.html isn't very helpfull ?

Thanx
Kevin
