  1. Good Morning - I've used Resilio sync for a while now - well before it was BTSync. I own a Pro license and mostly use the service to actively sync folders between my PC and mobile devices for backup and file sharing purposes. One thing I haven't ever been able to get configured correctly was where a folder shared from my phone would only Read and not Write to my PC. Even when setting a shared folder as "Read", it still syncs files in both locations. This morning, I thought I'd try the "Backup" feature so after selecting the folder on my phone, clicked the "My Devices" option for my PC
  2. Thanks for the reply. The folders I wish to be set up this way are black with a white crown - not the pencil. However, I'm only wanting the Linux side to only send and Windows side only receive if that helps. As far as how I've added the folders, I have tried the below two methods: Method #1 Attempted Created a folder on the Linux box set to Read Only Waited to Windows Resilio Sync to show the new available folder to connect to, then choose to Connect it to a local folder. Unfortunately, files added to the Windows folder are syncing to the Linux folder Method #2
  3. Hey Guys - I have been using BTSync Pro on a variety of devices for over a year now and recently upgraded them to Resilio Sync - I love the app! 90% of my overall traffic is sent from a system running Ubuntu to a Windows 10 system where I'm on the latest Resilio version on each and they are running as a service. My question is how can I make the Ubuntu pair of sync folders "Read Only" so that if I were to add anything in the sync folders on the Windows 10 side, they would not be uploaded? Also, can this be configured on existing connected synced folders? Since I'm using Pro, I
  4. Hello All - I've been using BTSync Pro for a few months now. I love the concept, but there's only 1 issue that keeps causing me issues: speed. From my home system (Windows 10 x64 / BTSync 2.3.6 (378) Service Mode) synchronizes with a few of my devices over LAN however 99% of the traffic going through it is from a Linux system (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64 / BTSync 2.3.6 (378)) over the internet. The two folders it syncs are what is running slowly on a constant basis. Most of the files being synced are larger 3+gb files. When I attempt to download the files from the same host using HTTP o
  5. Thanks - I actually just found a way that was not only easier for me, but added a couple of additional features. I actually host a few other web services on the same PC and use an installation of Apache to provide reverse proxy for them. Don't know why I didn't think of it sooner, but adding a few lines to my httpd.conf file was all it took to get access to my BTSync WebUI console from any PC without needing a conf file. Below's some of the config used... System: Windows 10 x64 Pro BTSync 2.3.3 (296) Installed as a service / No conf file or any special settings Apach
  6. Hey Guys - I use BTSync (Pro) to synchronize many folders between multiple devies - one of which is my Nvidia Shield Tablet which runs Lollipop 5.1.1. When first moving to 5.1.1 a few months ago, I rooted it and added a 64gb SD card. I then edited "/etc/permissions/platform.xml" to add the  "WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" string therefore providing all apps with full write to the SD card. I installed BTsync, set up my options, and linked 4-5 folders to various folders on the SD card without issue. Besides BTSync, I use FolderMount to create symlinks on my internal SD so that I may
  7. Hey Guys - I've got a basic question to ask, please. I subscribe to BTSync Pro and recently reinstalled the OS (Windows 10 x64) on one of my PCs. When installing BTSync, I saw that I had the option to install it as a service so did so. I set the credentials and am able to access the WebUI via http://localhost:8888. When trying to access the same WebUI from other systems on my LAN (http://newpchostname:8888), it does not work. I looked all through the preferences, advanced preferences, and searched online to find out how (if possible) to enable LAN system access, but so far haven't h
  8. Hey Guys - Just a quick suggestion of a feature often used in SABnzbd. As I download from many different applications on my PC, sometimes I want to pause specific services so that others will have the full bandwidth yet don't want to wait for the downloads to finish (or have to remember) to start them again. I use NetBalancer to assign priorities to specific application's traffic which helps with some of this, but it doesn't work exactly the way you'd hope it would. SABnzbd has a great feature which allows you to pause the entire queue for a set duration of time after which it w
  9. Hey Guys - Well, it's time for a phone upgrade and I can't decide between Android or iPhone again. The primary reason I would want Android is because of how you can use BTSync with it. Here's what I do with my current Android phone (m7): What I Currently Do on Android (Want to do on iPhone) - Have BTSync Pro which has computer and phone linked (plus other devices) - My PC automatically downloads an MP3 radio show daily, renames it, and moves it to a folder syned with my phone - My Android phone checks for and syncs the folder (plus my Titanium backup & music folders) over the night
  10. OK, thank you. I applied to receive the API but still haven't gotten a reply. Hopefully I will soon. Thanks again
  11. Hey Guys - A few months ago I went from a fairly complex FTP Server / Client configuration using scripts to synchronize things to BTSync and haven't looked back since. I currently use BTSync Pro on about 5 different platforms, but this question is about the Windows version. There is just one thing I have a question about, though. My Question Do any command line options exist for BTsync 2.2.x (Windows) which are geared towards application / sync control? I connect to my home server often which throughout the day synchronizes with a remote server. I'd love to be able to easily script so
  12. Hey Guys - The Issue I've been using BTSync Pro for a few months now and enjoy it. For the past few weeks, I've had an issue where sync speed between a remote Linux host and my local PC hasn't been what it should. At top speed, the sync should be running at ~2Mbps but instead it hovers around 250-300Kbps. I attributed this to my OS as I had a couple of other issues. This weekend, I went to Windows 10. Not an upgrade, but secure erased my OS SSD, installed Windows 10 x64 Ent from scratch, and reinstalled everything. All app configurations were new, too no copying over any old AppData
  13. Hey Guys - I've been using BTSync Pro (paid license) between multiple platforms for a couple of months now and love it... until recently. A primary sync I have is between my home Windows 8.1 system and a remote (over internet) Debian installation. 95% of the data transferred between the two is the Windows 8.1 system downloading from the Debian one. For the past couple of weeks, the download speed has been at ~250kb/s - much lower than the ~2mb/s which it ran at prior to this. Being a Systems Admin for years, I have tested a variety of things which make it seem to be due to BTSync / it
  14. Hey Guys - After using a variety of options, BTSync has become an excellent replacement for multiple apps previously used for many purposes. Thanks for your work on it! My Feature Request Tasker integratoin for BTSync on Android! A few minutes ago, I searched online to see if BTSync had Tasker integration or possible workarounds. I found Tasker wasn't currently supported, but did see an overwhelming amount of posts requesting it on various sites including posts on this forum (link). Based on what I've read so far, any potential workarounds are not stable at all . How I Was Planning
  15. Hey Guys - I have a remote Linux box (Debian Squeeze) which for a couple of years have been manually transferring data from it to my local PC (Win 8.1) using FTP. Once local, I'd then have to sort it manually. I started using BTSync recently instead and wish I had thought to use it earlier. It's a better solution by far - especially as I can sync music folders with my phone! I've got an issue that I've run into that I need help with. Between my remote Linux and local Windows systems, I sync a single folder which has 10 static category folders inside of it. Based on labels and rules I
