  1. As a supporter of Resilio, I would like to turn to you for a better understanding.

    I've already heard that you must all use your time efficiently. Nevertheless, I would like to understand why nobody or hardly anyone from the staff apparently works in the forum. It is clear that there is also considerable potential in this to advance the Synctool. This would also include fixed update cycles, it doesn't have to be the big technical leaps from update to update. Etc., etc.

    Further, If there are problems, the users want solutions and if the impression arises that they are saying it here and it goes unheard (yes, from you Resilio staff), because maybe the users and forum participants also have no solution, they turn away in frustration. This is what I experience when users, even those with licenses, complain about it in other forums. Should that be so?

    It's also about users turning away and using other tools even though a license is in place. The users want a lively community, they want to feel where you stand, they want to join in and ultimately help.

    Well, what's your opinion on that?

  2. I've already done this with Syncthing and recently with Resilio.

    First create a group and a user in the DSM that only affect this Docker installation. Connect the user to the group and give the group the related permissions in the folders, you want to include below. Go to the

    /etc/group
    /etc/passwd

    and read out the PUID and PGID for this, each with a 4 or 5-digit number after the assigned name.

    Then download the latest image from resilio / sync: latest and start the image. For the parameters deposit as follows:

    Section Environment entrance PUID <-> xxxx and PGID <-> yyyyy

    Section Ports fix no. 8888 also outside, maybe also 8888 or other.

    Section Volumes as follow:

    DS-folder: homes/name_of_user (PUID) <-> mount-path: /mnt/sync/

    and for the filesystem include all relevant folders as follow:

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-1 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-1/

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-2 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-2/

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-3 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-3/

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-4 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-4/

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-5 <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-5/

    .

    .

    .

    .

    .

    DS-filesystem-folder: folder-n <-> mount-path: /mnt/mounted_folders/folder-n/

     

    Thats it. Start and try .... 👍

  3. It's once more like death in the forum from Resilio side. Problems that are set here can only be partially answered. Nobody knows whether Resilio is working on it. And the last update to v2.7.2 was in July 2020. That doesn't make a good impression.

    There has been no feedback whatsoever with regard to DSM 7. DSM 7 means a major cut in the rights system and various other directories. If Resilio misses this change, it will be very bad for users with Synology Server. Synology is very popular and more and more Resilio users are joining Syncthing, I get that in the forum there.

    We will see.

    7 months later and no reply, I find myself wondering

     

    Take a look around in that forum to see who is involved from the Resilio staff. In principle, the forum is supported by the members and they often have no solution because no Resilio staff play along, or far too rarely. That's a big problem.

    I recommend you to have a look in the Syncthing forum, it is much more dynamic, because Syncthing staff also work intensively on problems. The result is that their software is at least as good now and that more and more Resilio users are migrating to Syncthing even though they have a license.

    It's sad how Resilio deals with the community, which is also a driver of innovation.

  5. Mainly there are Pro features such as

    • Local folder sync
    • Selective sync
    • Encrypted folders (but I´m not fully sure)
    • Scheduler

    The first two of the points you can solve with tricky things, the last two are not so easy. If you dont use any of that points, is no problem to switch, in the main the tools are the same. Its the thinking about, in which way is the handling of the tools. The main difference between is,

    • Resilio is a Peer related tool and
    • Syncthing is a Device related tool

    Thats it. I find Syncthing is also more for technicians, because GUI and all have much more informations about all, and needs in relation to the Resilio Pro a little more assistance for setting up.

  6. First of all, since I have not used Resilio before, now and in the future in that environment, it is superfluous and I therefore do not violate any license terms. I am describing a limitation here, which seems important for me.

    What I take as a joke is that the support here is not reporting because of this licensing history. Topic posted by me for discussion on June 5th, 2020, my request on June 30th, 2020, with a comment on November 11th, 2020 I will receive encouragement. And now on December 8th, 2020 you will come back to it as a member. You mean you know the answer, why Resilio support didn't answer?

    You are welcome to convince me by showing how the issue is solved here. In any case, I cannot reconfigure Resilio via the GUI or in a simple way or via Poweruser Settings etc. so that I can close the topic.

  7. Setting up multiple instances is definitely possible somehow. But I imagine this to be difficult, since of course all references have to be adjusted manually and accordingly. I think an adapted administration is better. Resilio is a client tool and not a user tool. If Resilio is installed on a server, it is a server tool and has to be looked after by an admin like all other tools on it.

    I don't know of any such or similar tool that has user control and thus user accounts that allow individual settings.

    The issue of performance is also important to consider, because not only does every instance take away resources, but also every file and directory because everything has to be managed. In this respect, I would consider setting up multiple instances.
