Rsync only transferrs files in a single direction.  For what you're
doing, you should check into a distributed filesystem, such as the
self-certifying filesystem ( or AFS.  Alternately,
look into the program named unison (but your desire to update every 5
seconds makes a more direct soltuion a much better choice).
