  1. Dude, just don't update your programs and stop complaining about an issue only existing in your head. Talk about nonsense... The users generally chomping at the bit for updates is that we have chronic issues that don't get addressed. So for us as users, we always have to decide to put up with bugs/workarounds or look for another program. If development is stopped, then we know to look for permanent solutions, not temporary workarounds. If development isn't stopped, then an update may fix it and then its wait and see. Plenty of updates in the past have resolved previous issues, just look at the change log! For me, Resilio just isn't the syncing app for me for music on Android and time for alternate solutions. I sold my NAS because Resilio kept making it run out of memory. On the desktop, they generate a high amount of system interrupts and freezes up my PC during 1Gbps+ transfers (I have 10Gbps NICs). Syncs that show "a few seconds" that have hours to transfer or have no active peers online (this bug has been there for ages and irritates the crap out of me). Syncs that have a few conflicts but when you go to see which files, it says no peers online, or never shows the names of the files to better understand the problem or how to resolve them. They default to debug logging so your SSD's are getting written to constantly. The debug requires a decoder ring and not written for easy debugging except by Resilio. Lots of little things you see when you use the program a lot or have more devices or more situations, etc. If they were fixing bugs in their Android app or their NAS apps, then waiting 6+ months between releases makes no sense as they're depriving users of fixes. Going a long time between releases on new features or changes in operation makes it harder to correct if the users do not like them. There are always bugs and unforeseen problems in software, but the longer between releases and the bigger the changes in each release, the harder it is to find the root cause of new bugs or undo unpopular changes.
  2. How about a link to an internal Windows version that has a fix for when the sync fails at like 16% showing a conflict with 2 files, but instead of saying which two files are in conflict, it just goes to a Loading... page that says "These files cannot be downloaded as there are no source peers online for too long time. Sync will continue downloading if any source peer appears online" and never ever finishes loading to show the 2 frickin' files holding up TB's worth of syncing. It's the most frustrating bug for me for 2018-2019 (yes, more than a year old bug). The source side shows no problems so you think the other side is fine, too, except you find out later that sync was stuck and the check mark status is 100% garbage misleading. This bug has bitten me at least 5 times that if I had known there would STILL not be a fix after 1.5 years, I would have switched to something else by now. Taking so long between releases is just a bad, bad idea and doesn't give much hope of things ever getting better.
  3. How large is the folder? It shouldn't be 100% for very long. Do you have a decent hard drive or is it old and slow?
  4. I don't know if this is a Resilio or Linux issue, as I run into problems with users not having write permissions despite being in the group on Linux from time to time. Solution has been to use setfacl and give write access to the Resilio dirs to the user. Easier than changing users, systemd files or using chown over and over.
  5. I wouldn't try and copy over settings, I'd just re-set up the link. It'll scan both sides, determine they are in sync and then be happy. It won't retransmit everything again. If you had tons of shares, that might be worth it, but for 1? Just recreate the sync on the two new machines.
  6. Ah, you're right. That might be a privileged port thing like linux. You'd have to port forward port 443 in your router to the internal 5 digit port number of your sync install.
  7. Your company will have a policy on allowed software. They only want traffic going through port 80 and 443 so they can monitor it and make sure they don't have security issues. You're wanting to use software that isn't using http/https protocol to circumvent the companies policy. Resilio wants to sell their software to businesses, and they're not going to take kindly to a change like this. You're putting the "detour" effort on Resilio instead of yourself, which I think is wrong. Try and configure your Sync peers to listen on ports 80 or 443. Then you can put in the address of your peers and you won't need a VPN or need the relay. Since you want to use Resilio in business setting, you'll have a Pro license, you can do a feature request or contact support directly and get an official response from Resilio.
  8. Ah, I see (not really). Must be a Pro feature, as the free version doesn't have servers, just peers, nor default folders (the default folder is for config files, not sync). Checking the website, I see this "feature". You're probably going to have to open a feature request to add an option to not sync when adding a folder automatically. Add Folders to All Your Devices Automatically PRO Sync every folder automatically to all your devices. You add a folder to one and it automatically becomes available on all your linked devices.
  9. What? I don't know what/why/how dragging is different, but adding a folder should NOT automatically sync with all peers for other folders unless the peers also have that folder added. On my main PC, I have several folders sync'd with PC1 only, other folders with PC2 only, and other folders with all three PC's syncing. Let's say I have PC1, PC2, PC3 If I add a folder to PC1, it syncs with nothing unless I also add that folder on PC2 or PC3. I add Folder-Music to PC1. I copy the read/write key and add to PC2 and PC3. Music is automatically synced to PC2 and PC3. Now on PC1, I add folder "Programs". Again, it syncs with NOTHING until I copy the key and also add to PC2 or PC3. Adding to PC2 does not make it sync with PC3. I think you'll need to provide screenshots of your folder setup for us to better understand your config.
  10. Usually, companies don't like to actively circumvent the firewall protections that you're under, unless it is to get around draconian censorship. The solution is to change your firewall to allow it. That is of course, you're not authorized to be running this software in the first place. That's your problem, not everyone else's. Hint: use a VPN and your problem is solved for any software, not just Sync.
  11. I disagree. I would argue you're simply doing your folder syncs incorrectly. Don't sync the root folder, just sync the folder that the device should have. Adding the folders and having it sync automatically is what most users want most of the time, hence, the best default. You have something like 10 syncs available in the free version. Use them.
  12. That NAS model is too old/underpowered to support Sync.
  13. How much ram does your problem NAS have? I'm going to guess 512MB and your Docker capable has 2GB of RAM.
  14. I would suggest making a separate /etc/nginx/conf.d/browsing.conf whereby server_name will use something like browsing.hostname.org. Just add another A record to your domain DNS.
  15. Well, I'm at about 24GB and I can say the app on my Android hasn't worked since the initial sync 10 days ago. Says there is 1 of 2 peers connected, but just white page when trying to view the peers. The overall problem is they tried to develop too many features in short time without QAing them. Finding bugs within 5 minutes of an upgrade is pretty regular occurrence, but shouldn't be in a mature program.
