  1. Yes it is. The Home Pro product has been feature complete/stable for a while now and so mostly sees bugfixes in response to host OS changes. Understandably, these are much less frequent than new feature drops. Speaking as a longtime Home Pro user (since 2014). I would not suggest paying for a license unless doing so gives you a feature you need and the free version doesn't have. The reason I say this is the exact reason you posted: license fees are best thought of as covering features, not development. Ergo, paying for the latter might set up you with false expectations of frequent r
  2. Thanks! I wonder if this is possible for Windows also ...
  3. CAVEAT: The solution below assumes you don't want to run Resilio Sync under the rslsync user profile. I suppose it can be modified for those who do want that, but I don't currently have any instructions to that effect. Since running under rslsync is Resilio Sync's default behavior, I believe simply following the official setup documentation will get you there. This fix worked on a fully patched and updated Debian Buster system on the calendar week of this post's writing. OK, here's how to solve this problem. If Sync is loading with no profile: 1) Shut down (not restart) the comp
  4. UPDATE: See OP for solution. Pi-Hole allowed it. I fixed the issue, actually. Just need to write up a solution so others can benefit. Unfortunately today is extremely busy and I'm behind in a technical training session because I was resolving this issue during the lecture.
  5. UPDATE: Fix. The problem was Resilio Sync was running under multiple users and so the process that didn't have access to the web interface was apparently freaking out. The above is happening to the latest Debian build on a fully updated Debian Buster system. It shouldn't be happening. Any idea what's going on?
  6. Ah, well that's odd. There may be some closed source kernel modules you can try loading, but I don't know which ones match that NIC specifically. Ask at the places I mentioned earlier.
  7. Are you using Intel, Mellanox, or Chelsio NIC(s)? FreeBSD frequently has trouble with NICs that aren't 1 of those 3. My FreeBSD has a Realtek NIC and the wired connection crashes every now and then.
  8. Fair. The only reason I run FreeBSD is so I can accurately comment on all major OS families (except macOS, which I'm planning to add sometime this year) from firsthand experience. OSes are a hobby of mine. However, I ran into the same frustrations you are with FreeBSD, to the point of making a list of reasons why I might stop running it in the future. As for stability, I also run Debian and in my experience its the most stable useful OS I have on hand (the others being 3 release channels of Windows, Raspberry Pi OS, FreeBSD, OpenIndiana, Ubuntu, and Android.) I emphasize "useful" because
  9. We may just be arguing semantics here, but technically I don't think my implementation is a service in the FreeBSD sense of the word. It's a background process that starts at reboot explicitly from a crontab entry. A true service is managed by FreeBSD init, which quite honestly I've spent years trying to understand - at least for apps like Resilio Sync that are delivered as FreeBSD binaries and not packages - to no avail. The other problem with setting up the binary as a service is - IMO - it makes updating it a much bigger PITA, because now you have to tangle with manually stopping and s
  10. Which part of the guide are you having trouble with? And yeah I can empathize with the troubles getting Resilio to run as a service under FreeBSD, as I've always found init incredibly confusing. Does Step 6) here not do what you want?
  11. Look man, this a discussion forum about Resilio Sync, not a computing seminar. I said what people who want an Apple Silicon build should do. If you want one, do that. Arguing with me about what is and isn't native isn't going have any impact on what Resilio does, so I suggest you direct your effort towards what you want instead of trying to win an internet conversation.
  12. On Ubuntu and Debian systems, if you run a kernel update, autoremove the old kernel, and then reboot the machine, Sync will load a new user profile from scratch (asking to set up, etc.) The only way to avoid this is to shut down the system completely and then boot it up again. This is inconvenient and can be wildly confusing for new users who might not know why Sync doesn't appear to be starting. I wanna say this problem started around Ubuntu 19.x and I've just experienced it on Debian 10 (Buster) for the 1st time today. The new kernel I'm running in Debian is 4.19.0-13-amd64. I suspec
  13. Sync individual folders within your home folder separately. That's what I do: my Documents, Downloads, Music, Video, & Pictures folders are synced across all my devices. Because each OS' home folder structure is different, I would not suggest syncing the entire home folder at once or - as you've discovered - you'll wind up syncing stuff you don't want to sync.
  14. See Wikipedia for yourself: AFAIK iOS apps don't need external layer to run on Apple Silicon macOS. I was referring to Rosetta 2 running x86-64 macOS apps on Apple Silicon macOS. I thought that was obvious, my bad. As for the rest of what I said, I run Sync on 11 devices ranging from a lowly Galaxy S5 to a 4C/8T desktop. I haven't noticed Sync run any faster on one than the other. All my changes sync instantly and since I'm always syncing the same folders, the only time a device syncs from scratch nowadays is when I 1st set it up. I've also been able to saturate my gi
  15. Hmmm ... from my experience setting up Windows 10, if you use a Microsoft Account your username will be your 1st name. From there Windows will automatically name your user folder, etc. Windows generally expects your username and user folder name to be the same (so does every other desktop OS, actually), so if they aren't you'll have a nonstandard config and run into trouble. I don't really know how to fix that without reinstallation; try Microsoft Answers, r/Windows10, or r/techsupport.
