I'm using FreeFileSync at the moment, but as far as I'm aware, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't sync as soon as a file changes, only on a set schedule?
There is RealtimeSync component coming with it:
RealtimeSync is a small tool which executes a command line each time it detects changes in one of the monitored directories or a directory becomes available (e. g. insert of a USB-stick). Usually this command line will simply trigger a FreeFileSync batch job.
I don't use it though, I use sync on demand manually to see what was actually changed...
Hmm, I'll have to see how this works too, as this could work for me.

Also, can it work when not on the LAN?
You lost me here. If it's not on a LAN, where is it. If it's connected to the internet and is able to open a host via system means - you can sync files between your computer and that host. There is also FTP support for other cases too...
Being a laptop, it's often off site with me whilst I work. However, the server remains at home, where I'd like to be able to sync (probably manually) from my laptop away with me, to my server at home.
Does that make sense?
