  2. Hi, Got a problem with the linux bittorrent sync client, Basically if the folder you want to remove hasn't been sync'd in a while then it won't show in the web ui and you won't have any way of showing the folder secret or being able to delete the folder. Is there any special web address say /gui/en/all.html which will show all the sync'd folders on the linux server rather than the most recent so I can remove or get the secret of the older folders?
  3. I'm running Linux Mint (desktop) and I don't know which version I have to download. Linux i386(glibc 2.3)1.2.82PowerPC1.2.82i3861.2.82 What is a PowerPC? I don't have problems running btsync on a terminal but I like a desktop version.
  4. Nowadays we have installation packages for debianoid distributions, but I suppose that there is also a need for RPM packages (RHEL, Centos, Fedora, etc.). Since I have no experience in creating such packages, I would ask the community, if there is someone here able to make the same work I made for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint and willing to cooperate in creating these packages. From my part I can offer: The scripts and the concept of deployment Hosting space for the repositories in order to keep all together Any volunteer here?
  5. Hi people, I'm Diego, work on Conexia and I love Sync! I'm here to talk about the use of bysync to copy the back ups (and other stuff) from a lot of client to a central server where the files goto a tape. At this moment, I have 5 CentOS clients sending files to a Windows 2008 R2. All the btsyncs apps are working as a service. All the CentOS have one shared folder (all by config file) Windows only have RO Secrets (configured by the GUI) Additionally, i formatted the volume for the shared folders into 64K to reduce the IO. Please, let me know what you think and how to get it better. Saludos, Diego
  6. Hi there, I have a shared folder between multiple Linux and a Windows Box. It contains 7.9 GB of files. All the installations on Linux and on Windows show that there need to be 7.9 GB of files to be transferred. The files are actually in sync and nothing is transmitted. This has been the case for all version before 1.2 and now also happening with the newest versions (at the time of writing 1.2.73). Is there a solution? Thanks in advance. Cheers, Markus
  7. Hi all, I've hooked btsync onto a raspberry pi via this tutorial: I can successfully ping my windows laptop from the raspberry pi and visa-versa.The raspberry pi web gui shows that I am connected to the windows laptop and that files should be transferring.However, my windows laptop does not show that I am connected to the raspberry pi, and no files are being transferred.Any ideas? The initial search suggests that its a firewall issue, but being able to ping both ways suggests not. Thanks in advance, This looks like a related thread:
  8. Hi everyone. I finally seem to have solved the problems with the fixed port but I'm now experiencing very very slow syncing between my two computers (laptop with Linux Mint 14 at work and Desktop with Win7 64bit at home). I use BTSync to sync a couple of folders that contain important documents, so that I have them both at home and at the office. The sync is actually an upload from the laptop to the desktop, because I usually edit these files when I'm at work, and "backup" them to the desktop at home for both security and accessibility. I have a 50/10 mbit connection at home and a more "normal" ADSL connection (5/1 mbit) at the office. Not so good for upload, but still plenty of bandwidth for syncing just a few small files. Still, syncing is very slow, around 0.1 kB/s with peaks of 0.5 kB/s. But most of all, on both computers, one sync never completes (both ends saying the laptop has to upload 222.6 kB, which never happens though). [Edit: I solved this, it was a problem cause by two files with same name under Linux. Slow sync problem still happening though.] I can provide logs if needed. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  9. Hello, I'm running Linux Mint 14 with Mate as the desktop environment. BTSync seems to be running fine, but it's been a couple of days since the tray icon of BTSync has disappeared. I've also tried killing the btsync processes and launch the program again, but nothing changed. It used to show up the fist few days of use. Any suggestions? How to debug this issue? Thanks
  10. I have 3 machines sharing a folder; Two run OS X Mavericks, One runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. All three are running 1.2.73 (the Ubuntu box is running the i386 glibc 2.3 version), but I've seen this problem on the past couple of releases. The two OS X boxes report themselves as being in sync, but they report the Linux box is out of sync. I've been running this setup for a couple of weeks and the Linux box does sync files which have been created or changed, but it always appears, from the OS X clients, as being not completely synced. I'm guessing this is a UI bug because I'm not seeing a continual upload from my OS X boxes, is that correct?
  11. I have a master (xubuntu 32bit, btsync@1.2.73) and slave (win 8.1 64bit, btsunc@1.2.73). The master usually send the data to the slave. Sometimes the slave crashes, and so I reboot. However, upon the reboot of the slave, BTSync does not sync anymore. It does recognize the device of the master, and there are !sync files in the slave, but nothing is transferred... bug or my setting?
  12. Hi, I managed to install btsync on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server and created a config file based on the samples provided. However, when I start btsync with /etc/init.d/btsync start it fails and consequently /etc/init.d/btsync status * BTSYNC 'username' is not running is displayed (where 'username' is mentally to be displayed by the user that I am running the config for). So I am stuck at this point as there is no sync.log, nor did it help to provide "FFFF" in debug.txt in the user's .btsync folder. Where can I start to debug why btsync won't start the daemon? Cheers Vince
  13. I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 and would like to stop BTSync from launching at startup. I don't see any settings in the WebUI. Thank you. EDIT: There is no option in "Autostart" under System Settings either. Normally I just change using the GUI configuration tool there. EDIT: I also manually quit BTSync from the taskbar before logging out. So it is not saved to my session. Additionally, I tried adding "btsync-starter" to my exclusions in session management to no prevail.
  14. Hi! I installed BitTorrent Sync on my Raspberry pi with raspbian (debian based) and it runs as root and makes root:root files with permissions 733. I can't delete files as user or with ownclowd, which I want to use as a web interface. Can I configure bitsync to make files with orner www-data:pi an permissions 770?
  15. I've looked all over for this so sorry if I'm missing something. I'm running BitTorrent Sync 1.2.68 on the command line with a config file, no GUI. Is it possible to see active connections to the client at all? Thank you
  16. I've written an Bittorrent Sync indicator for Linux Desktops (specifically Ubuntu, but may work on others too - let me know!). It basically displays the same information as the WebUI - which folders are syncing, and which peers they're syncing with. It has an animated icon to show when something is syncing, and there's a function to copy secrets to the clipboard. You can get it, find out how to use it, and report bugs at Enjoy!
  17. I've seen some threads before but couldn't get any ideas where to start... So, the main issue is speed or rather the lack of it... Mostly around 2-5-10kB/s, even if I've seen shorter spikes over 100 Setup: - one-way sync from win8 machine to debian machine in another town. - 2 routers in-between, one of them over wifi (upload, ie source side) - 1 folder, 2,5K files, mostly BMP and DNG files, 58GB - interesting bit: 2/3 of that folder was already in target machine. when I "connected" them, it didn't seem to say "indexing..." as it did with another test folder (I wanted to know, if it is able to continue where other app left off) - first I tried regular cloud sync, but since I have dyndns assigned to that machine, I set up port in target router and listed server:port in source. I presume I did it correctly since the icon changed and sync works.. unfortunately, as slowly as before. With this kind of speed, it's impossible to continue as I indended to back up my photos mainly. Any ideas? Anything to check on my connection? Is it possible that service provider identifies btsync as torrent and throttles it's speed somehow?
  18. I downloaded the linux version onto my centos6.4 x64 server and when I go to run the program as the instructions say (./btsync) I'm getting the following Line 1 Syntax error near unexpected token `<'its like it doesn't know what to do with the file. any ideas?
  19. Hello, Apologies for accidentally posting this in the wrong forum before, I hope this is the right one... I've been using BTsync for some time now to keep a folder of work synchronised between 3 machines (2x win7, 1x Mac OSX) and it works fine. I then back this up with Time machine on the Mac just to be on the safe side in case of the occasional sync problem. I've just started dual booting my laptop into Linux and have access to a 'data' NTFS partition which contains the work folder usually synced by Win 7. Would it be possible or sensible to install BTSync in Linux and point it at the same folder, so it will stay in sync whether I am booted into Win or Linux, or am I asking for trouble? Thanks, AndyR
  20. I accidentally let btsync index a folder where I want to sync TO (because I'm trying to continue move from sftp to btsync and most of the content is already in target machine, so deleting the whole folder is not a nice move). I need to remove it but Web UI cross button shows only the warning but clicking OK mean nothing. The folder is still in UI, I still can't set up it as a target folder for syncing from elsewhere... Any ideas? How to remove folder manually - by deleting .syncID and correct DB files?
  21. Hello *, I'm running a few instances of BTSync (all 1.1.70), with one of them on a backup server. On this machine I see btsync indexing all the directories every 10 minutes or so. If I correctly understand what's going on I could say the app is rescanning all my files (~130.000) on each check. Is it possible to avoid these checks altogether, maybe using some sort of event-driven approach? inotify comes to my mind for Linux, others are needed for different OSs I think this is important because at the moment my hard disk is always awake and spinning, while it could rest (read: save energy and noise) untill an event is raised (such as a modified file). Thanks for your attention.
  22. Hello, I didn't find any possibility to add a synced folder on linux web interface. Is it possible or not? Thanks
  23. Hi again! Another newb question. I want to secure the webmin interface with a password and username, but I can't seem to get it to work. I've probably just formatted my .conf file wrong, but it would be great if someone could eyeball it for me and let me know where I've screwed up: { // use relay server when direct connection fails "use_relay_server" : true, "use_tracker" : true, "use_dht" : false, "search_lan" : true, "lan_encrypt_data" : true, "lan_use_tcp" : true, "webui" : { "listen" : "", "login" : "name", "password" : "blahblahpassword" } } I set this up, restarted the service and... still doesn't work. Connecting to the server on port 8888 still goes straight to the webui without asking for a password. Any help appreciated. Much thanks!
  24. Hello there, I've set up btsync using a two-way secret, trying to keep a folder on my laptop (running Ubuntu 13.04) with my home computer (running Windows 8). The gui reports that I have 42.1 GB in 64392 files in this folder. For some reason, the web (and Windows desktop) GUI report that there is still 122.7 MB remaining to upload from my laptop. In spite of this, there is no transfer activity reported on either GUI, and after enabling debugging output, I see that the log reports "State sync finished for folder..." When checking the results of the sync, I see that most things are synced as expected, but there are a few differences resulting from the SyncIgnore file (correctly ignored), and from the lack of symbolic link support on the NTFS drive. My question is: could these be causing the difference? If so, I don't believe that the GUI should report this remaining file size, and should rather say "fully synced". I have tried removing and re-adding the folder from scratch (letting it fully re-sync from nothing), and this did not help. Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi, I started using BTSync as soon as it came out publically at home and I love it. I use it to sync my music, documents, etc. between multiple computers at home and remotely so that my main system can act as a backup server for all of the others. Some of the folders are ~300GB in 150,000 files, all Windows machines. Now on to my problem: After loving the product for personal use, I wanted to use it at work for a new project. We just bought 5 new Haswell servers and we wanted their configurations to all be the same. -Each has an SSD with the OS mirrored across all of them and everything with that is fine. -They also each have a 3TB HDD (WD RED) to store our compile tools. -All on the same gigabit switch. -iptables firewall disabled. I wanted to use BTSync to keep a folder (/usr/tools/) the same across all servers. Ideally, if new tools are added they would instantly sync to all the other servers, and this was supposed to cut down on my setup time. I have btsync installed on all systems and can view the webpage to manage them. When I go to add the folder (/usr/tools/) there is significant lag before the website registers that it is complete. I let this system finish indexing all the files (239GB in 2,400,000 files) which took over 8 hours (!!!!). I could not believe that it took 8 hours using 100% of one of the CPUs. When I added the second system to the swarm, it was immediately found and added, but the transfer rate was pathetic. It did about 2GB in an hour. I added the other three systems to see if that would help, but it only made things slower. I ended up copying the folders over manually and letting them all index before connecting them back to the LAN. Four of the five servers now report that they are in sync, but one is fully indexed yet still things it needs all 239GB from the other servers (but doesn't transfer anything). With only the four that are in sync online, btsync is still using 100% of one of the cores (presumably trying to constantly check for changes?) So my questions are: -Is it expected that indexing 2.4 million files will take a very very long time? -Is there anyway to let it use more than one core for indexing? -What could be preventing one of the servers from syncing if they are all configured exactly the same? -Would smaller folders be handled better? -Why is the CPU usage so high?
