    how do i sync passwd accross internet?


    i don't plan on doing it JUST YET. but i need to know how i can sync the local accounts from one linux system to another linux system over the internet. information such as the user name and password and anything else that is possible. problem is, it won't be running openldap or any directory server of any type. no samba, no nothin just local accounts. just as long as it can be secured with SSL or SSH, it's all good. any ideas?

    you can use scp or rsync over ssh..its secure.

    go to www.rpmfind.net, in the search field give "openssh"
    download and install the version fit for ur distro...
    and then you can use scp which is secure copy.

    distro

    i don't have it installed yet but i'll install either fedora core 1 or the new mandrake 10 community. either way i figure they come with openssh anyways. but i still don't get the scp thing. so using that it will automatically copy all account information and passwords from one system to another?
