  1. Ok, so we think differently. Let me try to understand the jargon. Basically, I don't need to use Resilio's relay and tracker. To provide those two functionalities I can put a Sync server out onto EC2 with public facing IP and all my other peers can use that EC2 server as the predefined host, correct?
  2. Hey Alex, I don't really understand your 2 answers: First you said predefined hosts can't act as relays and/or trackers. Then you say the opposite, that predefined hosts will be my trackers and relay when I set them up on a public facing EC2. Could you please elaborate on your short answer so the two answers won't contradict each other? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I have tried to get as much information out of the public help articles on the predefined hosts but they are close to useless. The whole concept of predefined hosts are speculative at best for the end user. Below are my questions I would like to get answered and be available for other users to learn. Do the predefined hosts act as relays and/or trackers? If they can act as relays/trackers, do they have to have the files themselves or they would only need to have the list? i.e. can they be set up with individual sync and never host files themselves? I am not interested in using an OpenVPN like solution but please state if it is necessary or not to what I I want to achieve. I trust the Resilio Sync public tracker but I am also interested in using a private solution, like set up a sync on an AWS EC2 and let it be my private tracker/relay server for my network. Can it be achieved with defining that AWS EC2 as the predefined host?
  4. Hello, I am using the current v2.1.1 on the Windows machine and also the current 2.0.107 on HTC One M8 and a Nexus 9. These devices are using the same LAN. Windows client has LAN broadcast enabled. Problem: The two android devices are not seeing each other. They see only the Windows machine. Questions: How can they be made to see each other so they can REALLY use the mesh topology that Sync promises to be using?Is this something only the PRO version has? (using free now) Thanks for any help!
  5. Thank you RomanZ! I will see into this matter by your suggestions. Thank you very much!
  6. On Linux Mint Petra in a VMWARE machine I create a folder to sync, add that with Web GUI, add some files to it. Then I set it up on the host machine to sync that folder. VMWARE client shows it is syncing those files and host shows the same size/number of files to be receiving. Still ONLY directories are created on the host, no files ever get synced. When I add a file on the host side it gets to the client side; when I delete it on the client side, it deletes right on the host. But when I add something on the client side, it never gets to the host. BTsync is working perfectly between Win<->Win, Win<->Android. Linux permissions are correct/unchanged. I wish someone could point out some ways to debug it and lend me some brain If needed I could elaborate on this with screenshots, logs or whatever. Thanks! Extra info: On the vmware client I use a nat and host only interface. When I switch over to a bridge and host only setup, files get synced correctly. Here are my vital configs: "storage_path" : "/var/lib/btsync","listening_port" : 0,"check_for_updates" : false,"use_upnp" : true,"download_limit" : 0,"upload_limit" : 0,"disk_low_priority" : true,"lan_encrypt_data" : false,"lan_use_tcp" : true,"rate_limit_local_peers" : false,"folder_rescan_interval" : 600,"sync_trash_ttl" : 7,Refined question: Can I get BTsync working through NAT?
