Application for automatic synchronization of remote folders?

How can I synchronize a folder in an Android device with a server folder? In other words, if in server a file is updated with the same name, then that file will also synchronize with the device.

Use FolderSync (Free lite version is also available with some limitations). It supports FTP, SFTP, FTPS, FTPES, WebDAVs etc. protocols to connect with server. It has many sync options: Two-way sync, One-way sync (up or down).

Most of the "cloud" services that have an Android app should work for you (e.g. Box - app, Dropbox - app, Google Drive - app, SugarSync - app, etc.)

However, keep in mind that most such 3rd-party services store your data on their own servers. If you are conscious about sensitivity of your data and want more control over how and where it's stored, the off-the-shelf services may not be the solution for you. You'll need to set up your own FTP/WebDAV/etc. server, and make it available online by modifying your network's firewall rules to allow outside connectivity. If you have a dynamic IP address from your ISP, you'll also want to register with a free service like No-IP which gives your server a static URL and little Windows/Mac/Unix utility to keep the server's IP address in sync, so that it's always accessible.

You can then use a different kind of a sync app which allows for specifying address/type of the server to sync to. Sachin's suggestion FolderSync will work perfectly for that.
