Manpage

This is the manpage of the current master branch:

NAME
 netdiff - A simple script to diff a file or a directory of two hosts
 over the network.

 This is very helpful if you want to find out any difference of these two
 hosts.

 SYNOPSYS
 netdiff HOSTNAME PATH [PORT] [ADDITIONAL DIFF OPTS]

 USAGE
 Cluster-SSH into two hosts at the same time and run on both hosts the
 same (simultaneous) command:

 netdiff HOSTNAME PATH

 Where HOSTNAME can be the hostname of the first or the second host.
 Depending on this the script will decide to be in the client or the
 server role.

 And where PATH musst be a full qualified path to a file or a directory.

 Netdiff transfers everything in PATH (recursively and encrypted via
 OpenSSL/AES) to the other host and computes a diff of it. The latter
 with the diff tool.

 If no port is specified the default port will be used which is defined
 in

 /etc/default/netdiff

 EXAMPLE
 A common use case is to find out the differences of the PAM
 configuration. On most systems the PAM configuration is spread into
 several small configuration files which are hard to compare by hand
 between two hosts.

 Given two hosts one.example.com and two.example.com. Just run this
 command on both hosts simultaneously:

 netdiff one.example.com /etc/pam.d

 The same affect, but the other way around, would be the following
 command:

 netdiff two.example.com /etc/pam.d
