  1. Great. But tell us more about the solved bugs of 2.1.0 in 2.1.1, please. Greetings merlinuwe
  2. Isn't there any supported release for my new Medion tablet LIFETAB_S1034X with Android 4.4.4 (kitkat)? Greetings, merlinuwe
  3. I have the same problem with Bittorrent Sync 2.0.85 FreeBSDx64 on FreeNAS 9.2.1.9. Is there a step-by-step instruction for FreeBSD (64 bit)? Please note, I can only connect via a webbrowser from an other PC.
  4. Hi, where is the link to 1.4.111, please? Greetings, merlinuwe
  5. +1 for a portable release of bittorrent sync. Some months ago it was available and should be reimplemented. Now would be the right time to do it. Happy christmas to all developers and supporters. Greetings merlinuwe
  6. @RomanZ Yes, I use predefined hosts on both folders. I sent some sync.dat-files of my installation base to Ker, hopping that the files will reach you. --- Yes, indeed. I can edit the sync.conf on my Debian 6 and on my FreeNAS in WebUI. (Why not?) The question is: Is it intended, that I do so? The comment in the sync.conf // specify hosts to attempt connection without additional search "known_hosts" :suggests this to me. Greetings, merlinuwe
  7. I believe, that this is the intention of Bittorrent Sync. But I have described what I have seen immediate after adding a host ... (Perhaps it is constructive, when you test it on your machines.) Here is an (anonymized) excerpt of my sync.conf: What is the advantage of adding these hosts in the sync.conf compared to only fill them in the websites predefined hosts? (Isn't the comment (// specify hosts to ...) misleading?) Or do I understand right, that this is a part of the sync.conf that has (at least in the current release) no effect at all? Greetings, merlinuwe
  8. Hi, when I add a new predefined host for a folder ("Austausch"), these change causes that an other folder ("Mobil") also "knows" these new host. Seen on the releases of Windows 7 32 and 64 bit. Setting of predefined hosts should be independent for each shared folder. @RomanZ When I add predefined hosts on Debian 6 or FreeBSD in the sync.config: Are they valid for all folders, even when I use predefined hosts? (If yes, they should appear there.) Greetings, merlinuwe
  9. Hi, here are my suggestions for translating the german release of Bittorrent Sync for Android: ("Kollegen" are my colleagues or co-workers, where I work.) Kollegen: 0, Indiziere --> Anzahl P2P-Computer: 0, indiziere ... Kollegen: 1, Synchronisiert --> Anzahl direkter Verbindungen: 1, synchronisiert. Kollegen:, 1, Nicht synchron --> Anzahl Netzwerkpartner: 1, nicht synchron. Kollegen: 5, Wird gesendet --> Anzahl direkter Verbindungen: 5, Dateien werden übertragen ... Please use only one of these: Anzahl P2P-Computer:Anzahl direkter Verbindungen:Anzahl Netzwerkpartner:Anzahl Rechner im Netzwerk:...The phrase "Anzahl direkter Verbindungen" is my favorite one, but decide by yourself. Greetings, merlinuwe
  10. @RomanZ 4.-5. (yes) 7. Bittorrent Sync is working actively but does not get ready with syncing in an appropriate time. It shows "Kollegen 5, Nicht synchron" (I waited hours for synchronizing 3,83 GB of data. And also the syncing of a small folder with 22,42 MB is waiting the same long time. But there is nearly nothing to sync.) Sometimes, it gets the status "synced", but after a reboot of the device, the same long syncing process comes again. (The device is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7".) Bittorrent Sync's energy save mode is "off". My other devices see 6 and 7 peers in opposite to my android, which sees only 5 peers. On the other side, the speed of indexing is ok. It indexes from time to time for a few seconds and after this the state "Kollegen 5, Nicht synchron" is shown again. 11. Sorry for my poor english. I give you some screenshots. In the file "Debian6 in Web 02.png" you see a red arrow which *shows* to "SyncNode EU1" (lightgrey). This server is only seen by my Webserver with Debian 6. The same Folder "Mobil" is on my FreeNAS, but this (LAN-)server doesn't see "Syncnode EU1" (but SyncNode EU2, witch is from the same provider). [bTW: Also my Windows 8.1 32 bit installation of Bittorrent Sync doesn't show "Syncnode EU1".] 15. (For me, it's easyly reproducable). New: Android shows for "Kamerasicherung" (camera backup) "Kollegen 0, Synchronisiert". (How can Bittorrent Sync know that, when it is not connected?) For the translators of the Android release: After a comma, the word "synchronisiert" is written in small letters. Also write ", nicht synchron" instead of ", Nicht synchron".
  11. Hi, I have some suggestions/issues: 1. FreeBSD: See attachment. This messages don't dissappear, even not after some restarts. 2. All releases: In the gui there is shown a date of synchronisation named "Synchronisierung-Datum". When I click on the peers-Link, there is also some information shown with the same name "Status Synchronisierungs-Datum vor xyz Stunden". When this should be the same information: There are different informations shown. I think, it shows the last connection and it should renamed to "Letzte Synchronisation vor xyz Minutes/Hours". 3. Android: "Kollegen" should be renamed to "Peers" as in the other releases. (My "colleagues" (in german: "Kollegen") work togeather with me at my workplace. ;-)) 4. Why is there no phrase like "6 of 7 peers"? This is inconsistent. 5. Concluding: Why can't I get information about the other peers like on the releases of other operation-systems? This is inconsistent. 6. What does "Nicht synchron" mean to me? I'm waiting a lot of time but this status does't change to "Synchronisiert". (Do I have to do something?) 7. I have some Apps that show me, that my Android-device is getting hotter. It consumes to much processor-time while using Bittorrent Sync. 8. It would be very useful to see the used IP and port in the menu "Identitäts-Details". 9. A button to force syncing (for all devices) would be preferable. 10. As you see, I have a complex network of peers. How can I be sure to have the same amount (and up-to-date) files on all my devices? The information about the size of *all* files and the green status-icon is not sufficient. An access to a database-extract, where only the *differences* between the peers (files with different file-sizes, file-dates etc.) are shown would be helpful. 11. Debian 6 32 bit, FreeBSD 64 bit: When I look a folder ("Austausch") at the windows 7 32-bit release, I see a peer (SyncNode EU1) shadowed, because its offline. The same peer on debian 6 and FreeBSD 64bit is not visible at all. But: An other folder (Mobil) is shown by the same releases as shadowed. 12. The new web-interfaces (1.4.x) are so slowly. 13. There is no tool-tipp for the bell icon shown in the upper right corner. 14. Some weeks before I reported some issues with files with german umlauts ("öäüÖÄÜß"). (Other users have reported something similar with special file-names or file-types.) How have you ensured, that these problems don't exist anymore? If you have made some testfiles, I would like to get them to test the situation in my complex environment. 15. The colums are configurable, but these settings are forgotten (after Browser-restart?) in Debian and FeeBSD. (It hat nothing to do with a restart of the applications.) Greetings, merlinuwe
  12. Hi, I tried to (unsystematically) "test" syncing with 1.4.93. My first attempt: Files like Österreich.txt, übel, öööäääüüü.txt, ÖÖÖÄÄÄÜÜÜ, dont get synced, if I store them on Debian6 and look at the files at Windows 8.1. The Good thing: The problem seems to disappear, when I add a non-umlaut as the first letter. aöü.txt, aÖsterreich.txt aöööäääüüü.txt aÖÖÖÄÄÄÜÜÜ.txt gets synced. The bad thing: Filenames like bÖ.txt, aübel.txt don't work. Testing is a little bit time-consuming, because I cannot force the sync process (klick a button and see, what works and what doesn't work). It's nearby to ask, why there are no such standard-test cases at Bittorrent afer a year or so of development, but I don't will ask because I can imaginge the complexity of testing. Edit: As I have seen soon, this problems seem to be already descovered in 1.4.92. Why do you release a new version 1.4.93 of a syncing software, knowing, that files like "Österreich.txt" don't get synced? (Don't tell me something about "beta" or so, please.) (The good thing is, that you tell known issues.) Greetings, merlinuwe
  13. @RomanZ Hm, I've seen them under the gear-wheel at the last menu under "options..." in the FreeBSD 64bit, but it would be also useful in all of the other releases, (like Windows 8.1, where I remarked the missing). BTW: In Windows, there is a blue button on the upper left "Ordner hinzufügen" ("add folder"?). In FreeBSD 64-bit there is an icon at the upper right side. This is inconsistent. In FreeBSD 64-bit there is an icon "Geben Sie einen Schlüssel oder Link ein", but in Windows there is no such an icon. This is also inconsistent. In Windows there is a button "Archiv öffnen". It would be nice to be able to see/download/delete the files under freeBSD (and other Linux/Unix systems), too. See h5ai, for example. But syncing between the android app and other local installed peers is a big problem, if you don't want to use relay, tracker or dht. Greetings, merlinuwe
  14. Hi, yesterday evening I wanted to write, that the issue with the port from release 1.4.82 isn't solved. But I thought to myself "ok - next release". Today I updated my FreeNAS to release 1.4.82 and got the same problem, with occured in 1.4.82 Windows 7: The Portnumber isn't changeable. Every time I change the port number open and close the window, I get a new port number. I'm not absolutely sure, but I think, the FreeNAS 64bit wasn't affected with this issue in 1.4.82. I saw these informations. What is the difference or relationship to the activated/not activated checkboxes which I can set for each shared folder? (Which one has the priority?) folder_defaults.delete_to_trash bool true Default setting for folder preference "Store deleted files in folder archive". folder_defaults.known_hosts string <none> Default setting for folder preference "Use predefined hosts". Hosts should be entered as single line of IP:port pairs (or DNSname:port pairs*) comma-separated (no other delimiters allowed). folder_defaults.use_dht bool false Default setting for folder preference "Search DHT network" folder_defaults.use_lan_broadcast bool true Default setting for folder preference "Search LAN" folder_defaults.use_relay true Default setting for folder preference "Use relay server when required" folder_defaults.use_tracker bool true Default setting for folder preference "Use tracker server" (BTW: Wasn't there a link to the help website http://sync-help.bittorrent.com (one or two releases before) available?) Greetings, merlinuwe
  15. Thanks for your reply. I cannot manually change the port number back to the old value I had before (Win 7 32 bit). Every time I follow your advice, I get a new port number. There is no difference if I check the checkbox or not and there is no difference, if I restart sync after changing the port number. (The automatically change of the portnumber occures when I close the Preferences->Advanced Window and open it again.) BTW: The issue doesn't occure with Windows 8.1, Windows 7 64-bit, Debian 6 and FreeBSD. greetings, merlinuwe
