  1. Switching to something closed source/compiled will not hide the API key. Anyone who knows what they're doing can extract it
  2. They look like folders because they are folders. The move away from using files by OS X apps is intended to make stuff like Sync better. For example of you have 40 photos embedded in your pages document, and change two paragraphs of text, it won't have to sync all the photos again. Why can't BT Sync properly handle a file that is replaced by a folder?
  3. I wish the iOS app had an easy way to send a file to or from dropbox, since there are so many third party apps that use it as their filesystem.
  4. Bittorrent could easily phone home at any time sending the secret to their server. It would be almost impossible to detect this, assuming they obfuscated it using modern techniques. All we have is trust and the fact it would be a serious criminal offence to lie about the amount of security the product is providing. No doubt one day there will be a working open source implementation. Until then, paranoid users should not install bit torrent sync on any computer that has sensitive data. Encrypting the files yourself is not good enough, bit torrent sync might read the RAM contents of your encryption software and phone home with the password. BitTorrent doesn't have any burden of proof because it is _impossible for them to provide proof_.
  5. With some help from my sysadmin, I got it working. I had to open UDB ports 3000 and 3838, in addition to my chosen listening_port.
  6. I tested the exact same config file in an Ubuntu 12.0.4 virtual machine and it works perfectly. Why isn't it working on CentOS? Maybe the production datacenter firewall is causing issues? How can I debug it? The firewall is a hardware cisco box, I opened the listening port and confirmed it's open, but is there anything else that needs opening?
  7. I can't get btsync to work on my Linux VPS. Perhaps there's a firewall issue? I tried setting up a custom listening port and opened that in the server's firewall. I think I've configured it correctly and don't see any errors in the log, but the server never connects to any of the other device with the same secret (there were three of them when I tested, in different cities with different internet connections, all able to see each other). My config file is: http://d.pr/n/hkpB Here's the log output (debug enabled): http://d.pr/n/AShU For the firewall I've opened port 4242 for TCP_IN, TCP_OUT, UDP_IN, UDP_OUT. Any ideas/suggestions? I'm using the latest version (downloaded today) on CentOS.
  8. I'm getting this error on iOS too. The app has no folders yet and has never been used, but I get the error "Folder is already added to BitTorrent Sync" trying to add one. iOS 6, app version 1.2.36. I tried erasing the app, re-installing and still get the same error. This must be a new bug, because i'm using the app with no issues on another iOS device.
  9. A lot of the suggestions here are really complicated... All I really want is to be able to specify a directory my app can read/write to, specify the secret for the directory, and have that directory kept in sync. That and basic callbacks for whenever anything changes (eg: if a file is sent to at least one other machine, I'd like to update the user interface). Basically I'd like to use BT Sync to keep data in my app in sync with data on any other devices/pc's a user has. Perhaps I might also run a server of my own with a copy of the data, which is available 24/7/365.
