I use SyncBack freeware to keep my windows development box in sync
with my web host. It just uses native ftp, and has always worked
flawlessly for me once I figured out the many options, but I have an
environment where changes are getting replicated to multiple sites
from multiple sites - in other words, the source files are being
updated in multiple locations.

In other words, configuring SyncBack should be much simpler if you are
in control of a one-way flow direction of changes.
