  4. I just had the same problem. I'm running btsync v1.3.94 on Ubuntu 14.04 amd64 on two machines:. laptop connected to file server via ethernet, each connected to net via WiFi.

Rebooted both machines, sync web page worked fine on the file server, but showed no connected devices. sync web page on laptop did not show version or any Folders. Clicking "Preferences" did nothing. Killed/restarted btsync serval times, same result. Log file shows: [20140510 02:22:56.348] Loading config
