Need help setting up and configuring rsync

Hello
I need help setting up, or rather configuring rsync to sync data between my brand new iMac and my Macbook Air.
Here is what I would like to:
- I want all of the files on both machines to be an exact mirror or copy of each other. Basically I have an iMac for at home, and then a Macbook Air for the road.
- The main folder on both Macs is called 'Sara' and I want the contents (mainly the 'movies' folder, 'music' folder, 'documents' folder and 'pictures' folder) to immediately sync up with each other when both of them are on my home network.
- this means if I'm working on a file at home on my Macbook, it will immediately write to the same directory on my iMac and vice versa (if I'm working on file(s) on my iMac, it will immediately save the contents to my Macbook). This way, if I'm working on last minute project my iMac, and then have to head out the door to the airport, the file is immediately saved to my Macbook (no usb for USB transfer).
- hopefully this makes sense??
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks

It's a lofty but unrealistic goal.  Rsync does not run automatically.  There is no realistic method of instantaneously synching two computers over the internet or even on a LAN.
I would suggest you might try using Synk Pro which, in theory, can keep two devices in sync when they are both on the same network (and both have shared and mounted drives.)
If you must do this with rsync then I suggest a Google search for rsync tutorials.

  • I need help for install and configure password sync from AD to OID

    Hi guys!
    I need to sync passwords from AD to OID, first all, ¿What software do I need? I read some docs and don't find the good config.
    I'm trying with:
    -Database 11g
    -Weblogic 11g
    -SOA 11g
    -IDM 11g
    -IAM 11g
    First I install the Database and load the schemas with RCU, next install Weblogic without domian, next install SOA, next install IDM (OID and DIP) in a new Weblogic Domain, next install IAM, next configure IAM in the domain created before, next configure SSL, check the config by using ldapbind, next configure DIP.
    It's that ok?
    ¿What I am doing wrong?
    Thank you all.

    If all you need is AD & OID then OIM is not required. DIP alone can handle this
    Password sync should work using DIP. if this is not working then check synchronization mapping and verify that password attribute is also part of this AD-OID sync. Enable debug in synchronization profile or raise an Service Request with Oracle support.

    I need help setting up an apple id for my son's phone. It seems his email address has been taken and/or we cant get the password.

    Two different things
    If you forgot the password
    If you forgot your Apple ID password - Apple Support
    If the email ID you want to use is in use by someone else - then you may need a new one
    The iCloud ID's are usually unique and may be of help if you set one up

  • Need help to import and syncronize HCM pagelets with Interaction Hub, how can I do that?

    Hi,
    I need help to import and synchronize HCM pagelets with Interaction Hub, how can I do that? The default page "Select Remote Content" of the WorkCenter "Unified Navigation WorkCenter" is not working as well, when I run the import/sync button I get the following error message:
    Integration Gateway: General Connection Failed (158,10836)
    This error is thrown when there is no valid response.
    Possible errors include:
    Bad gateway URL
    Sync Service Timeout set and Service actually timed out.
    Java exception thrown - Check Application Server for possible Java exception

    Do you have integration configured between the two systems?  It sounds like you don't from the error.  Here is a walk-through on setting up Unified Navigation although it assumes you have integration already working.  If you haven't done that, it's documented a hundred different places.

    Teresa,
    I think the best way for someone to volunteer to help you would be for them to send you a Private Message (PM) here on the forums. You should see a small envelope in the upper right corner of the screen, when it changes color you will know you have a PM to view.
    I would be happy to help, but since I am in North Texas I don't think that is a viable option Sorry....

  • Need help Setting up Multiple Static Ip , 1 for each port of the fios router

    Need help Setting up multiple Static Ip on my fios router
    I have been trying to figure out how to set up multiple ip in my fios router.
    However I kind of managed how to set up multiple static ip However the way I want it is for each port of my router to have an external ip signed to it. ( like 4 different modem in 1 )
    Verizon gave me 5 static ip but they can not help me how to set it up.
    Have anyone here done more then one static ip on different ports? I assume that the process will be the after the second static ip.

    You want to set up Static Nat. You will not assign the IP to a port, but rather to a local machine. Figure out what machines you want your IP's to go to. Under the firewall section you will see static nat. Pick the machine you want and enter one of the IP's you were assigned.

  • I am having problems to run logic pro 9, there is an error display that says I need to set bonjour and that this app serial number has been used by another red user,  could anybody guide me?

    I am having problems to run logic pro 9, there is an error display that says I need to set bonjour and that this app serial number has been used by another red user,  could anybody guide me? actually, my computer can't start  since three days ago, could it be the same problem?

    Logic is the APPlication (program, app) that you are having the problem with.
    Logic Pro can take advantage of other computers on your local (home or work) network to help it do "heavy lifting" data chores by using Bonjour and a feature called Nodes.   It seems that Logic is attempting to find and connect to another machine on your network.
    Do you have Logic installed on another computer there?  That may be the source of the confilict.
    You might want to post this question in the Logic Pro Community.
    Be sure to indicate the version of Logic Pro that you are using.  I'm sure the folks there can help you out.

  • Need help setting up outlook mail on ipad2

    downloaded the outlook app, need help setting it up.

    Is it actually called Outlook, or is it called Outlook Mail Pro or Outlook Mail Complete or something like that? Those apps are actually by separate companies (ie, not Microsoft), and I don't personally have experience with them, but here are links to their support sites which should have the information you need (or an email address you can write to):

  • Deperately need help setting up external midi devices

    I need help setting up external midi devices.....Motu828...Midi express...RolandXV3080....Motif rack.......HELP

    Theres not really much to setup. Assuming your synths are connected to the MIDI Express already..
    In Logic, make a new MIDI track. On the left hand side in the track inspector, among the parameters you'll see an option for MIDI Port and Channel. Just pick which port the track is going to, set the channel and device id and play (And be glad you never had to deal with setting up the old Environment window in Logic 5 and below).
    If you really wanna get into it and have all your MIDI ports named after the synth thats connected to it, open up Audio Midi Setup, create a device icon for each synth you have and draw the cables from each device to whatever port its connected to on the midi interface's icon.
    Then in Logic everytime you pick your MIDI port on your track, instead of MIDI Port 1, MIDI Port 2, etc.,
    it would be labelled XV-3080, Motif Rack, and so on.. I dont think theres anyway to do this within Logic itself (you can change the labels on your audio ins and outs, but not MIDI as far as I can recall)..
    If youre talking about having access to patch names and whatnot like Digital Performer and Cubase let you do, Logic doesnt use the xml patch lists everyone else does. The above steps are pretty much all there is to be done as far as MIDI.
    Heres my Audio Midi Setup window for reference.
    Now when I select MIDI Port 1 in Logic its named MWXT, port 2 is SR-16, etc..

    Need help setting up 3 different iCloud accounts for my kids (so each has own iMessanger)using same Apple ID (mine) ....they don't have their own separate email addresses to work from...how do I do this?

    Any devices connected to the same icloud account can sync all the data on that account.  For this reason an icloud account is really for a single user.
    On a mac, if each user has their own account, then the itunes for that mac account should be set up to connect to that user's icloud account (System preferences>icloud).
