  1. Has anyone else had the problem of the sync application immediately and consistently crashing when the application opens? It is happening on all 5 of my windows 7 (64 bit) computers. If anyone has experience with this or knows what may help, I would really appreciate it, especially since I haven't heard back from the official support, despite having a paid account.
  2. I just installed Sync 2.0 for the first time after using earlier versions a lot last year, and I'm having a problem launching the webui after I install and start sync. Specifically, I can't get past the authentication page. I try putting in my username and password as defined in my config file but it doesn't take. Below is the text of my config file. { "device_name": "My Sync Device", "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port /* storage_path dir contains auxilliary app files if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in the directory where binary is located. otherwise user-defined directory will be used */ // "storage_path" : "/home/user/.sync", /* set location of pid file */ // "pid_file" : "/var/run/btsync/btsync.pid", /* use UPnP for port mapping */ "use_upnp" : true, /* limits in kB/s. 0 - no limit */ "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, /* proxy configuration */ // "proxy_type" : "socks4", // Valid types: "socks4", "socks5", "http_connect". Any other value means no proxy // "proxy_addr" : "192.168.1.2", // IP address of proxy server. // "proxy_port" : 1080, // "proxy_auth" : false, // Use authentication for proxy. Note: only username/password for socks5 (RFC 1929) is supported, and it is not really secure // "proxy_username" : "user", // "proxy_password" : "password", "webui" : { "listen" : "0.0.0.0:8888" // remove field to disable WebUI /* preset credentials. Use password or password_hash */ // ,"login" : "admin" // ,"password" : "password" // ,"password_hash" : "some_hash" // password hash in crypt(3) format // ,"allow_empty_password" : true // Defaults to true /* ssl configuration */ // ,"force_https" : true // disable http // ,"ssl_certificate" : "/path/to/cert.pem" // ,"ssl_private_key" : "/path/to/private.key" /* directory_root path defines where the WebUI Folder browser starts (linux only). Default value is / */ // ,"directory_root" : "/home/user/MySharedFolders/" /* directory_root_policy defines how directory_root is used (linux only). Valid values are: "all" - accepts directory_root and its subdirectories for 'getdir' and 'adddir' actions "belowroot" - accepts directory_root's subdirectories for 'getdir' and 'adddir' actions, but denies attempts to use 'adddir' to create directories directly within directory_root Default value is "all". */ // ,"directory_root_policy" : "all" /* dir_whitelist defines which directories can be shown to user or have folders added (linux only) relative paths are relative to directory_root setting */ // ,"dir_whitelist" : [ "/home/user/MySharedFolders/personal", "work" ] } /* !!! if you set shared folders in config file WebUI will be DISABLED !!! shared directories specified in config file override the folders previously added from WebUI. */ /*, "shared_folders" : [ { "secret" : "MY_SECRET_1", // required field - use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "dir" : "/home/user/bittorrent/sync_test", // * required field "use_relay_server" : true, // use relay server when direct connection fails "use_tracker" : true, "use_dht" : false, "search_lan" : true, "use_sync_trash" : true, // enable SyncArchive to store files deleted on remote devices "overwrite_changes" : false, // restore modified files to original version, ONLY for Read-Only folders "known_hosts" : // specify hosts to attempt connection without additional search [ "192.168.1.2:44444" ] } ] */ /* Advanced preferences can be added to config file. Info is available at http://sync-help.bittorrent.com */ } How and where should this file be save? Any help someone could provide would be really appreciated.
