Some simple shell scripts for synchronize your data using rsync.

You only have to adapt the variables at the beginning of the scripts according your needs.

rsync_home.sh


This one can be used if you have your remote system mounted onto the local file system, e.g. using NFS or SAMBA

Variables:

MOUNTPOINT: Path on local system where you have mounted the exported path of remote system
LOCALDIR: Path on local system from where you want to synchronize (by default your home directory)
EXCLUDEFILE: File where you can enter all path's (one on a line) that shouldn't be transferred
LOGFILE: File to log output of rsync into

rsync_home_ssh.sh


This one is an example if you want to access the remote system over SSH.

Variables:

REMOTEHOST: Full qualified host name of remote system
LOCALDIR: Path on local system from where you want to synchronize (by default your home directory)
REMOTEDIR: directory on remote host after the colon (":") (by default your home directory)
EXCLUDEFILE: File where you can enter all path's (one on a line) that shouldn't be transferred
LOGFILE: File to log output of rsync into

Remote Host can be either preset or passed as a command line parameter.

For not have to type your passphrase for your ssh key every time, you can store it within your SSH agent.
