  1. @aarona : I'm using the Jail plugin on FreeNAS 11.2 - and it just kinda "worked" out of the box. What I did initially have trouble with was getting it to also run in the main FreeNAS O/S as my user account on there... Basically - created ~/sbin in my home dir on the actual NAS (i.e. in the shell of the main O/S of the NAS, not a jail) Unzipped the binary for rslsync in there... Created a config in ~/sbin/rsl-config.json (don't have access to a copy here - but basically I changed the "" to ""). Then changed to ~/sbin (i.e. cd ~/sbin) Ran "./rslsync --config ./rsl-config.json --webui.listen" (pretty sure it's probably ignoring the "rsl-config.json file - with my "--webui.listen" argument - i.e. redundant - but it worked). Then connected browser to IP address of my NAS : e.g. "" and add new sync folder keys... My Resilio Sync jail on the NAS has a different IP address than the main O/S of the NAS. Note : that rslsync jail is not the same one in my original post - I had to rebuild my NAS again from scratch - had a hard drive fail in it - and when I went to replace with a new 4 TB drive - the FreeNAS GUI tools confused me such that I added the replacement drive as a stripe member instead of "data + parity" member - so had to dash out - buy a 6 TB USB HDD - back EVERYTHING up - then rebuild as a new FreeNAS instance, with a new RSL jail... but the new Resilio Sync plugin jail install was painless... Also - my wifi/router does DHCP - once I saw what IP address the RSL Plugin / Jail was getting - I set it to dedicated/permanent lease... but there's also an option in the Jail configurator to set a static IP address...
  2. Happily running sync on following platforms : FreeNAS 11.x (using the jail plugin - actually installed it from 3000 km away about 12-14 months ago) - HP NL40 microserver 8 GB RAM 12 TB storage Raspberry Pi 3b Stretch (x 2) Ubuntu 18.04 (x 4 physical hosts, AMD desktop, 2 x Dell i7 laptops, plus a Gigabtye Brix) BananaPi m1 running Armbian 5.6 iPad Pro 12.9 Windows 10 laptop
  3. Here's my problem - I've got two laptops at my work desk, my "main" one runs Ubuntu 18.04 which I bring from home (it's my personal laptop, but most days leave it at work because I can't be bothered lugging it during my daily commutie), the other runs Windows 10 supplied by work (pretty much just use it for skype 4 business and couple of nasty proprietary windows only "service desk" applications)... The Ubuntu host NEVER seems to sync with my stuff at home when located at the office - but strangely enough, sometimes the Windows 10 sync does get updates "over the cloud" from my home network. So - I bought a "tiny" 256 GB USB 3.1 thumb drive - and inserted it into my Banana Pi (m1) running Armbian. I've soldered battery terminals and a LIPO onto the board. This is the "original" Banana Pi (model 1?) A20 dual core, 1 GB RAM, pretty much running headless... I take that home every day and bring it back into work the next day - and (Resilio Sync) sync over ethernet in both cases (work's wifi is flakier than my home wifi and the Banana doesnt have wifi anyway)... Battery (2700 mah?) drops to 63% capacity during my 45-60 minute commute... so I reckon I'd probably get 3 hours out of it if pushed... So - no mattter what corporate firewall rules are in place - my data is sync'd ... it's nearly all just a subset of my music collection, documents and shell scripts... I've got a license for Sync Pro, but I don't use selective sync, just three separate sync folders (shell scripts, documents, Music)...
  4. I'd pay for an iOS app that enabled a full feature media player for my RSL sync folders! I was impressed that the app will play FLAC files in my RSL sync'd folders - but there's no playlist control, or skip track or anything remotely functional... Still love RSL and the 5 user license was worth every penny!
