  1. Sorry guys looks like I have mixed two points together thus confusing my 'position' or 'claim'. Really all I was saying is that using Synth with FreeBSD you can still install a Resilio package, no custom 'set up' required. Jdrch is correct in saying that a pre-built package is no longer available, but I am saying Synth will create the package and install it for you....all you need to do is add the appropriate /etc/rc.conf line so that it starts up automatically if you require that. Then I confused the issue, when I said I have abandoned Resilio for Synchthing; and that comment should hav
  2. So as I mentioned earlier I use a program call Synth which downloads code and builds the packages on the machine. So I am not downloading pre-built packages, but am downloading the code, and Synth builds the packages on my machine. Similar to another program called Poudriere. Anyway, I finally got around to updating my machine, using Synth, which will re-build any required packages. Portmaster, which I only use to easily show which programs have updates available: ===>>> rslsync-2.6.3 ===>>> New version available: rslsync-2.7.1 And then I ran
  3. Well I'll be dammed. I guess you could use portmaster to install it then. I've been using Synth to keep my repo up to date, but I am way over due for an upgrade. After I get everything moved over to Syncthing I will see if Synth will still build its own package. Looks like that will break now. That is a real shame. /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/synth If the folks at Resilio want to maximize the potential user base of their product they have to include it in the FreeBSD ports/packages tree. Please don't anyone turn this into a "no one
  4. I am one of the old users and have patiently waited for a mature product with proactive bug fixing. I have given up. I am migrating my stuff over to Syncthing. I'll check in from time to time, and if I see a product that finally is stable enough to use I will consider coming back. Today however I just cannot continue to try to use something that still has ghosts in it. I wish you the very best, and I continue to be a big fan of bittorrent based products and services.
  5. Just use the FreeBSD install package and let the installation do all that is required. No guide required.
  6. I guess that depends on your definition of alive. Well I will say this. If you are trying to sell a product you need to sell the impression that you have a bug free product and an amazing support staff. The comments on here, and the lack of responses, very much suggest Reslio is not alive! Maybe not dead, but certainly not healthy.
  7. When BTSync came it was low on features but it was rock solid on syncing. I think the general consensus was it was flawless. But then one day there was a new version that had a fundamental change to it that caused a bunch of syncing issues, and since then it seems each and every release has ghosts in it; most of then causing stuck syncing, and other undesirable stuff. Is there any chance a Sync Lite version could be released, one low on features, does syncing for a few folders, runs on many OS (including FreeBSD, Apple iOS, and Android of course), is easy to support, and is bullet proof
  8. Is Resilio pretty much dead? Should I be looking for a new multi-node syncing system?
  9. I have been days trying to determine why one of my nodes would not upload to the other two nodes. And yesterday I upgraded a 2nd node and now its displaying similar weird behaviour. What's even more weird is this seems to be occurring on one sync/share instance only, and its really large. Some of the issues I have noticed: One share will no longer upload to other machines, once running on 2.6.3; even if I recreate that sync instance from scratch. One 2.6.3 node complains "file permissions incorrect or lock on files", yet nothing has changed in my setup for years now. Another
  10. My Ubuntu machine was not turned off or removed permanently. After everything else was in sync I turned it back on and it was good to go. I have been a 'BTsync' user since day one. One day 1 it was rock solid, but a little time afterwards they made some sort of fundamental change and since then sync has a ghost or two in it that they just can't seem to resolve. I find sometimes the only way is to rebuild the sync share: meaning delete it from every machine, delete ther .sync folder, create a new crypto key on one machine, let it finish indexing, and then repeat on the other machines.
  11. Thanks for that sir!!! Much appreciate it!
  12. Any chance there is an Ubuntu machine participating in the 'swarm'. I have been stuck with my own Android issue (see my post) and only by trying (for the sake of trying) I stopped the one Ubuntu machine and poof my LG (Android) phone started syncing. I'm still monitoring but so far so good.
  13. Well looks like I got it working. Only through trying everything, I decided (for no other reason but to try something) to stop sync running on my Ubuntu machine. As soon as I did that the LG phone immediately started downloading, and was synced shortly afterwards. I was quite surprise actually. I waited a couple hours, and have since started sync back on the Ubuntu machine. So far it seems all machines are staying in sync. Time will tell. I'm guessing this behaviour has been seen before, but I'm not going to search through years of discussion posts. If anyone does indeed know that this
  14. Its been a while since I have posted because Resilio has been working so well for me. So, we just got two identical Android phones; one is about two weeks older than the other. Both are LG Xpower3 phones. A bit of background first: I have a few FreeBSD servers all running full sync for multiple folders we will call A to G. Rock solid. Also have one Ubuntu laptop running full sync to two of those folders A and B. Also rock solid. Two weeks ago I added Sync to a brand shiny new LG Xpower3 phone, and added A and B, but in "Selective sync"mode. Also rock solid. Yeste
