  1. After the very useful information which guided me to what I needed yesterday during my installation I am pleased to say that I am now fully up and running. I do however have a slight concern and I'm hoping that somebody may be able to help me with this. Just to clarify – I have installed the software on one office PC (Windows), one office Mac, one Windows 2012 server and one Debian LINUX server. Most of my files were on the Windows server and both servers have a very powerful Internet connection (one gig). As you would expect the files synced from the Windows server to the LINUX server very quickly but the two computers here which are on a standard Internet connection are obviously taking their time – there's nearly 100 gig of data to download. Looking at the transfers in progress window (and remember that both of the servers – Windows and LINUX are completely synced) it seems to be putting files into the queue to download from both servers which would make sense because there is a copy of the files on both servers but it is only actually downloading them from the Windows server. The LINUX server remains at 0.0 kb per second and doesn't do any downloading. In order to check that the LINUX server was functioning okay I went into the Windows server and dumped a load more files into the shared folder. This immediately synchronised with the LINUX server and this was reflected both in the Windows server software and by logging into the GUI interface for the LINUX server where I could see that it was updating. So, everything does seem to be in sync but my query is why when the files on both servers is it adding a file to the queue for my LINUX server but not actually taking it from the LINUX server? I did think that perhaps it would only download from one computer at a time so to test this out I logged onto the Windows server and paused the synchronisation. My PCs here then only connected to the LINUX server but stayed at 0.0 kb per second and nothing happened. Any changes made on any computers – deleting files, uploading, downloading etc are synchronising with the LINUX server but it just seems to be that none of the devices are actually downloading from there and to be honest this one has the better Internet connection and clearly if my files were downloading from both servers this huge queue of data would process an awful lot faster. Any ideas would be most appreciated – I hope I've made it clear what the problem is LOL All the best I should add it WAS taking data from both servers but has only recently stopped! Maybe restarting the software will help.. anyone know the linux command to restart the software? sorry!!! just to add that one of my computers is now downloading a little from the Linux server but the mac is only downloading from the windows server and from the PC (via LAN). Is this notmal or shouldnt it take as much from everywhere as it can for speed (if 3 computersd have the file then take from all, or some form one source and some form another to get more done???)
  2. I got a little confused but found this and wahooo it works! http://linuxaria.com/recensioni/bittorrent-sync-automatically-sync-files-on-your-linux
  3. Thanks for the reply. Had a look and crikey that looks complicated!!! Is there anyone out there who can set this up for me? Lol
  4. Hi, I've recently come across bit torrent sync and I am really excited. I've been using dropbox but have outgrown it now with almost 1 TB of storage and other cloud synchronisation services are really expensive. I have installed it on my desktop PC and on Windows 2012 server and its working absolutely fine. I also have another server which is used to broadcast online radio which is a very powerful and secure server with a raid hard drive for backup and so I want to install it onto this Linux platform. I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to Linux but with the GUI interface I think I will be okay. My problem is that the server that I want to put it on is a dedicated server which as I said I used to stream Internet radio and it is installed with Debian and our streaming software which is Centovacast. The storage space which is massive is pretty redundant so it makes an ideal place to keep data securely. The software that is currently on the system has its own GUI interface which is accessed by IP: 2199. It also streams out a number of radio stations which currently range from ports 8000 through two 8050 although we add new streams regularly and that software is configured to allocate an IP address between ports 8000 and 10,000. The manufacturers of the other software have said that I can install anything else on to the server providing it doesn't interfere in any way with the ports that their software uses. I'm a little bit concerned because I've seen that the GUI interface is accessed via IP: 8888. Clearly, with this software using ports 8000 to 10,000 I'm worried of any conflict here. On my PC version it using a port in the 6000 range for listening. What I do not want to do – and cannot afford to do is install any software that could potentially knock off-line our radio stations! Does anybody know exactly the range of ports that this software uses and if, during the installation process this GUI ports of 8888 can be predetermined to something else – maybe 6000 or somewhere well away from the software I'm currently using? As I said, the current software has its GUI interface access to port 2199 and then each of the channels for that we stream out on goes out between 8000 and 10,000. If anyone can give me some advice on this I would be most grateful. I am really excited about finally making some use of this expensive yet redundant storage space that I own and finally being able to do away with services such as A Drive and an FTP server both of which I am paying a monthly subscription for! Thank you in advance for your help :-) All the best Mike
