I use rsync to sync with my ftp server using a cron job, If your ftp service
is hosted on a linux server and if it offers shell login (SSH) with RSA/DSA
public key authentication, then you can configure your local and remote
servers for password less key authentication and then you can schedule a
simple rsync cron job to sync the data. You can refer following URL:
