Synchronizing Directories on Different Computers

Recently, I have had the need to keep my music synchronized between two unix/linux based computers. In order to do that, I used the following rsync command from the destination machine.

rsync -arzcv --delete -e ssh username@src:/src/location/of/music/ /dst/location/of/music

rsync updates the destination directory with the contents of the src directory. Don’t forget the trailing / after the music directory on the src machine.
