  1. I have upgraded the system to the new btsync 2. was all working great on version 1.4 I have a ReadyNAS that is the owner of the folder I sync. now version 2. I have 2 PC one windows 8.1 and other windows 7 link to the NAS on a LAN and they are both peered and syncing. I am trying to peer a third machine but it is stuck in 'Pending Approval' this happen when I set a un-tick the 'New peers I invite must be approved by me'. I also trying it with the box tick and it ask for approval in the NAS but still stays as 'Pending Approval' On the NAS in the peersing list I get :- activity = offline User = correctusername Devices = 0 of 0 permission = read & write Any ideas
  2. OK talking about options and them being missing. Again in the mobile and the ReadyNAS versions, there is no "more options..." as there is on the desktop version. WHY ??
  3. OK again in the readynas version, there is no "more options..." as there is on the desktop version. WHY ?? This is how I had to change the option on version 1.4 But will this work on verions 2 ?
  4. OK thanks how do i send the desktop and NAS debug logs to?
  5. I am using BTsync on windows NAS and Android Phone. I am having trouble with the sync over to the android Phone from both my ReadyNAS and windows 7 and 8 PC I am not sure where to get the Btsync logs of the android phone so I can check were the files are not syncing. Some files have sync and there are files in the peer list of the NAS and PC machine. I will be retrieving the android phone from off-site to check it and will give an update tomorrow
  6. I have install the new firmware 6.2.2 and the sync has stop working with code 22002010000
  7. The upgrade was of the readyNAS version. So would this make a difference?
  8. I am running BTsync 1.4 on all my machines. does this mean I can delete all the .SyncIgnore & .SyncArchive files and folders ????
  9. Got a answer for this thanks RomanZ Here is also a code with comments in : ( I am not sure is all the coding works on the NAS box ) { "device_name": "My Sync Device",// If listening_port is set to any value other than 0,// than this port will always be used even if you restart// the btsync. Othewise, if set to 0, then it will be a// random port number every time you restart btsync. "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port /* storage_path dir contains auxiliary app files if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in the directory where binary is located. otherwise user-defined directory will be used. Note: this is not the place where your actual files are saved for your sync folder. This is only used for the databases for your sync folders and various parameters and settings, log files, etc. The default location on Ubuntu is: /var/lib/btsync But it may be anything, as defined in your .conf file.*/ "storage_path" : "/home/user/.sync",// uncomment next line if you want to set location of pid file// "pid_file" : "/var/run/btsync/", "check_for_updates" : true, "use_upnp" : true, // use UPnP for port mapping/* Speed limits in kB/s 0 - no limit*/ "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0,/* remove "listen" field to disable WebUI. remove "login" and "password" fields to disable credentials check*/ "webui" : { "listen" : "", "login" : "admin", "password" : "password" }/* !!! 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. Note: There may be multiple folders defined in case you want to include a number of different folders in the sync process. The structure of the shared folder stuff is: "shared_folders" : [ { shared folder 1 parameters in here (copy paste the contents inside your current configand modify them to configure multiple folders). }, { shared folder 2 parameters in here }, { shared folder 3 parameters in here } ] So, all you need to do is to copy the code block from your config file which is enclosed by { } and paste it after the existing one using a comma to separate them. Then it is just a case of editing the parameter values accordingly. NB. Make sure you don't copy the full shared folder block ie the square brackets. You just want the block inside. Notice the commas after right curly braces (},) at the end of each shared folder except of last one. If you don't include the comma, after the brace, you will get an error. See: "Linux - Multiple shared Folders in config file" thread: *//* , "shared_folders" : [ {// use --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "MY_SECRET_1", // * required field// dir is directory name of the sync folder.// It is where your actual sync files go.

  10. I have it working on my readynas. and also 2 android mobile. and so windows machine. I am buying a raspberry PI to see if I can get it working off that. The readynas work but crashed sometime. and I have found file corrupted with file size of 0. But found the original in the .sync / Archive folder. this is why I would like to set the "sync_trash_ttl" in all the unit to "0" while I am testing the system Version 2 will come to the NAS boxes last and I need this working !!!!
  11. There is on the windows version options / preferences / advanced /more options But I am still looking to find there option on the readynas version and on android version
  12. Was the upgrade from 1.4 version one back to the latest version 1.4.103 i got this option default reset. I still do not know how to change this setting in the Readynas version
  13. The advanced preference / more options Ie. sync_trash_ttl where reset to default after installing the new version. I had this set high as my ReadyNas version is giving me some problem.
  14. I have set the sync_trash_ttl to a high number. so that I can recover files if need when I see that have been deleted. done this on the desktop machine anyway. But I can not do this on the readynas, do not know where. I started a post on the subject but have not get an answer as yet "Advanced / More Options" I have also notice that when I upgrade to the new version of the desktop software the "sync_trash_ttl" had reset to default "30"
