It seems to me that any syncing solution will work over any type of bandwidth, including VSAT
The speed is going to be what it is but the syncng strategies would not change based on the available channels or bandwidth. If the chances of dropped connections increases, the more you'd have to invest in a robust transactional model where you can trap for those dropped connections and not let partial transactions succeed.
thanx wim - (and we use a transactional syncing model ..)
i just wish we could pass more data thru scriptparameters when server side scripts are called. the limitation is quite low.
