  1. Be happy to test a Beta build with the 192.xxx style IP address. Thank you for the consideration.
  2. Confirmed with Verizon FiOS support (using Quantum Gateway, FiOS-G1100, and the router vendor that broadcast packets sent to are not supported. Can the team look into providing an option to send broadcast packets to the .255 address of the subnet where the app is running?
  3. As an alternative, would it be possible to send the LAN Sync broadcast to the subnet's .255 style IP address, e.g., Seems like some routers cannot handle certain broadcast scenarios. As an example, on my Verizon FiOS Quantum Gateway router, if I manually send a UDP packet to, no other client receives the packet. However, if I do the same to, then all devices receive the packet. Test bed is using 'socat' program to generate UDP packets. WORKS socat - UDP-DATAGRAM:,broadcast DOES NOT WORK socat - UDP-DATAGRAM:,broadcast
  4. Thank you for the detailed explanation. I tried this on a MacBook Air (wifi) and iPhone6 (wifi) on the same SSID ... and still couldn't get the 2 devices to recognize each other. I can see the MacBook Air sending broadcast packets to at port 3838 .. but there doesn't seem to be any response from the iPhone.
  5. Quick update: After I enable/disable relay+tracker, the iOS device is now able to talk to the server inside the LAN based on server logs. I don't see any external IP address in the logs. Is the initial enabling of relay+tracker somehow allowing the 2 peers to "see" each other that wasn't possible via the LAN broadcast pings? In the first instance without relay+tracker, the server peer's broadcast pings were left unanswered, as if the iOS device never "got" them.
  6. Have a relatively simple setup with FreeNAS running BTSync plugin at version 2.3.8. Also running the iOS client 2.3.4. If I do the following, I cannot get the iOS device to find the FreeNAS server and start doing a camera roll backup: Configure the FreeNAS btsync plugin to disable non-LAN connections: folder_defaults.use_relay = false folder_defaults.use_tracker = false folder_defaults.use_lan_broadcase = true Enable "Camera backup" on iOS device, email myself the link. Go to browser UI for FreeNAS btsync plugin, go to cogwheel at top right corner, select "Manual connection". Paste link from email, choose storage location. btsync web UI shows added folder and shows "Pending approval". Go to iOS device and approve the connection. Observed Results: FreeNAS btsync UI shows folder with "No peers". iOS device shows "Camera backup" with "Connect to a device" notice. Expected Results: iOS device should see the folder on the FreeNAS btsync service and start backing up the items from the camera roll. Alternate Flow: If I enable relay and tracker, it starts syncing. Can this work with LAN-ONLY setup?
