  1. I checked both routers and UDP was not being blocked on either one. Then I tried to run BitTorrent Sync for a third time and this time it worked! It started transferring the files I was expecting it to transfer completely correctly. Today is a holiday in China. Business internet use is low right now. I believe that when China Telecom’s servers are extremely busy some things just don’t happen when they’re supposed to happen. This means that we might not be able to get files to transfer over the internet at the precise moment that we want them to. My boss says he’ll check with them to see if we can increase our bandwidth. But my opinion is that CT’s servers are so busy at peak times that it’s really an infrastructural problem and they will need to upgrade their systems someday. In the meantime, I would have thought that it’s simply a matter of leaving devices turned on overnight. Sooner or later BitTorrent Sync will see the device over the quieter internet and the files will transfer. Of course this is not ideal, but I would have thought that file transfers are not usually instantly required anyway, in our business anyway.
  2. I'm assuming you mean UDP, not UPD? My problem is our routers are in Chinese! However, these acronyms do tend to be written in Roman text and I've searched my router's various pages for UDP settings. It can show UDP data transfers, but there doesn't appear to be any setting for blocking UDP. I'll try to get the network administrator at work to help me determine if UDP is being blocked somehow. Thanks for your responses
  3. Hi. I'm an American living in China (PRC). I'm wondering if the Chinese government, which regularly censors and interferes with internet traffic, may be stopping torrent file tracking. Could this be why the SyncApp isn't working here? Just to be clear, the app works fine on my local area network. When I tried to use it between my home and my work office, that's when it didn't work. I thought that my work office computer would use the secret to connect with the BitTorrent Inc. server and then the torrent tracking system would connect it to my computer at home. Isn't that what's supposed to happen? Would using a VPN help? If so, I assume both computers would have to have a VPN running, at the same time, and probably to a VPN server in the United States or Europe? The reason I haven't tested this idea is because I have only one VPN account which can only run on one computer at a time. To test this I would have to get a second account, but I thought I'd ask first before I went to the trouble. Thank you for any advice.
