  1. Resilio Sync "pro" (pro 5 user license) I've got a sync source on my FreeNAS Resilio Sync "master" (using the plugin jail)... Every single time I setup a new "destination" to sync from my master source - I get this (see screenshot). It's not a show stopper - but it's annoying, I can "ignore" sure - but I'd like to get rid of it permanently. I cannot find that file in the Resilio Sync "jail" running on my FreeNAS server... When I originally would have copied that file there - it was a mistake - it's a 20+ GB OVA of a Windows 7 VM (VirtualBox), and I would have realised this, at the time, and removed it, and this would have been in 2018.. But something thinks it's still there. How do I tell it that file's no longer there and to stop Resilio Sync blabbering on about it? Any ideas?
  2. Thanks so much @alex - that solved it for me! Just port forward allowed TCP port to NAT rule on my router then translate to listening port number on the RSL jail on my FreeNAS box! Cheers mate!
  3. I just thought about this again, and I don't think some sorta NAT thingie will work : SOURCE TCP-Port -> DESTINATION:PORT -> NAT-DEST:NAT-Port desktop 30400 -> myhost.dynds.com:30400 -> home-PC:60870 Anyone have any ideas? Am I going about this all wrong?
  4. Product Resilio Sync Pro 2.6.3 (1340) Pro - as in 5 user license/subscription. Platform(s) : Ubuntu 19.10, Ubuntu 18.04, FreeNAS 11.2 (but also a Win10 laptop at work - happy to leave this out of the equation). Okay - I've done various searches but unable to find more specific information I'm looking for. Everything was working "tickety-boo" in 2018, till my employer started blocking a "vast" range of anything to anywhere TCP/UDP ports... I'm on good terms with one of the Network administrators, and he gave me a list of TCP ports open to "anywhere", e.g. armed with this information I can now ssh to my Raspberry Pi from my desk at work, with a NAT rule on my router. Currently I've implemented a "kludge" - I keep my main home computer (Dell Laptop running 19.10) connected/sync'd via my employer's VPN (horrible Checkpoint SSL product), and I've got "Predefined Hosts" pointing to the IP address of my work Laptop running 19.10, using port 60870. This works. Another even "kludgier" workaround I was using was to insert a 256 GB thumb drive into a BananaPi (M1, running Armbian), running on a LiPo battery, sync everything to there from "home", plonk it on my desk (got a dumb Gbit switch on my desk) and get it sync'd, but the Pi ethernet NIC is a bit "dodgy", had to keep rebooting it (pulling power and pressing power button) - i.e. take it into work, and home again, everyday... So - given this information : Work will let me SOURCE DESTINATION TCP PORT office anywhere 30400 office anywhere 31400 office anywhere 32400 office anywhere 4020 office anywhere 4022 office anywhere 4023 office anywhere 5671 office anywhere 5672 i.e. no UDP it seems, and not "ranges of ports" unless e.g. 5671-5672... Also - I'm using one of these for my SSH NAT rule to my RPi. Here's my "Predefined Hosts" settings for one of my shares, from the Ubuntu machine @home that I keep VPN'd to the office : "tenrji-wk" is an /etc/hosts file entry, pointing to the DCHP leased IP address of my work Ubuntu laptop... I have to edit /etc/hosts if my work computer gets a new DHCP lease. Armed with this information, could I perhaps : Setup (at least one) of my work Resilio Clients to send out on TCP port 30400 to my NoIP dynamic hostname, with my broadband router having a NAT rule to send this traffic to some "port" (e.g. 60870) on one of my home computers. e.g. : SOURCE TCP-Port -> DESTINATION:PORT -> NAT-DEST:NAT-Port desktop 30400 -> myhost.dynds.com:30400 -> home-PC:60870
  5. @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...
  6. 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
  7. 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)...
  8. 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!
