|Installation & Configuration|
IBM Aspera Sync (the async and asyncadmin executables) is automatically installed with Enterprise Server, Connect Server, Point-to-Point, or Desktop Client version 3.5 or above, but requires a Sync-enabled license to run. IBM Aspera Sync must be installed on both the source and destination machines. For more information, see System Requirements. You must have permission to access the directories and files that are to be synchronized using Sync.
Updates to Sync are available as patches that can be downloaded from the Aspera website. To install the patch, follow the instructions below.
