  1. hi Is there a way to set the niceness of resilio-sync? If i recall correctly this was a parameter available during the btsync CLI setup process. How do i set in resilio-sync please? OS = OSMC Cheers, Geoff
  2. Hello, I managed to get resilio sync up and running on my new install of OpenSuse Leap 42.2. However, I tried to update my repos and zypper came back with the error: "Permission to access '' denied." I looked in Yast and noticed that there is no GPG key there for resilio, though I did import it using the prescribed method in the documentation. Thinking that might be the problem, I reimported it, to no effect. Any tips?
  3. I followed the guide here on how to migrate an older btsync setup to resilio. I download the Binary and extract it, I Place it in my Home------>----->Bin directory. Next to the btsync Binary. I first run Killall btsync to stop the process. This works fine. I then run systemctl start rslsync. Sometimes this works, other times it does not. If it does work. I run Systemctl enable rslsync. I then check the status with systemctl status rslsync. The status comes back with an
  4. I'm upgrading my sync installations on my servers from the yeasoft version (btsync 2.0.95) to the new official Debian/Ubuntu version (rslsync 2.4.4) and I'm encountering some weird permission issues. On some of my servers sync seems to ignore group permissions. Example: sync runs as user rslsync, group staff rslsync:x:104:50::/var/lib/btsync:/bin/false staff:x:50: I try to sync the directory /etc/nagios/nrpe.d/ root@Siamorphe:~# ls -alh /etc/nagios drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4,0K Mär 11 15:10 . drwxr-xr-x 99 root root 4,0K Mär 15 06:44 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8,1
  5. Here's my setup: Main computer: Windows 10, only one internal HDD Second computer: Linux Mint, one internal HDD for the system, one external usb hdd for all my documents/files/folders I'm syncing some folders from the main computer to the external hdd on the second computer. It's a read and write situation on both. It worked flawlessly for over a year. But since the last Resilio update it stopped. I can't access the external HDD on the second computer via Resilio anymore. So I can't add folder, I can't sync anything. When I try to add the folder, I navigate to the the
  6. Hi, there's a small but annoying problem with your repository that blocks our automated installs on Ubuntu 16.04 (LTE); Error:9 xenial Release 403 Forbidden [IP: 80] Old:10 stable InRelease Reading Package Lists... Done E: The repository ' xenial Release' does not have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by defaul
  7. Hello, I've run into this problem already a couple of times: whenever I re-install a machine (running on Debian or Ubuntu), I first backup all the keys, then re-add all the folder after installation. Kind of tedious, given the fact that the data storage has not changed... I thought, it would be enough to backup /etc/resilio-sync/ /var/lib/resilio-sync/ ... and copy these folders back after re-installation Resilio Sync. Unfortunately, I'm greeted with the first-time installation dialog asking me to create a new user for the web-ui, which indeed does create a new .SyncUser
  8. I recently ran a yum update on my computer running resilio sync and after a reboot noticed that all the settings were gone. Additionally, it could no longer load the folder list from where my folders are in the WebUI. I am unsure how to resolve this issue or how to roll-back to a previous version.
  9. Update: Never mind, i figured it out. I just deleted the folder i was trying to select as the target and re-created it from the PI and it worked fine. Must have been some weird permissions thing with mapping an NFS share from a windows server to a Linux client or something sync didn't like about it OK, so I'm having issues getting sync to write into a mounted NFS share on Linux. first some background: there are 3 machines involved. 2 windows servers (one is 2016, the other 2008) 1 Raspberry PI The Server 2016 server is a host on my network and is my main file se
  10. This is regarding the Installing Sync Package On Linux guide, the following section: In what case would I want to do sudo systemctl enable resilio-sync vs systemctl --user enable resilio-sync I don't understand what the advantage over the other is and what is supposed to be "best practice"? And am I supposed to run sudo systemctl enable resilio-sync as the user rslsync or as root? Thanks for any clarifications?
  11. I'm on a Raspberry Pi 1B and this is what I get. $apt-get install resilio-sync .... Setting up resilio-sync (2.4.4-1) ... Job for resilio-sync.service failed. See 'systemctl status resilio-sync.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details. invoke-rc.d: initscript resilio-sync, action "start" failed. dpkg: error processing package resilio-sync (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: resilio-sync E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) ::::::::::::::::::
  12. I use linux (Fedora 25), but I found a bunch of people with the same problem in different OS's So, each time I ran Resilio I either got asked to configure it as if for the first time, which mean I lost all my previos configuration and peers, or and old outdated configuration showed up, which was useless by the time I came across it. The cause? It turn out that, in Linux -don't know the rest of the OS's- Resilio creates a .sync hidden folder in whichever folder you happen to be on when you run it. It is pretty clear if you are in a terminal window (or command prompt). If you run
  13. I've noticed that Resilio now only runs on my Linux box while I'm actually SSH'd in. This seems to be a new development, and I'm not sure how it would have happened. Is this a setting that can be tweaked or is there something more funky going on?
  14. Detected another bug ... if I already had folders synced, and I change the { "device_name": "newname" } it will crash the ARM/Linux version of Sync. I changed it back to the old name and at least my VPS sync (2.4.2) doesn't seem to repeatedly crash. My Raspberry Pi sync (2.4.1) crashes about once every few hours even for only two folders synced.
  15. I am using Ubuntu 16.10. It took a while to set up due the documentation being a bit sparse. I am having an issue with permissions. Initially I was able to select my home folder however I needed to change the hosts file to allow my phone to access the laptop. I closed the browser and attempted to try again from scratch but this time instead of my username, Sync is using rslsync which does not have permission to write to my home folder. I have purged and started from fresh to no avail. How can I reset the whole process?
  16. A few days ago I needed to move a shared directory to a new location, since the old location was running out of space. This is on Ubuntu 16.04, and it's using an encrypted key. I initially set up Resilio using the steps described at To move the store I did this: Used the Linux web UI to disconnect and remove the existing location Copied the contents of the share directory using "sudo cp -a [old location] [new location]" Copied the encrypted key from Resilio on my Mac, and entered it in
  17. Hi, I've recently moved from Sync to Resilio on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian. I had to restart the computer it's installed on and now when I go to the WebGui there aren't any of the settings or folders I had configured. This includes the licence file to upgrade to Pro. I followed the instructions at: and all of the folders being synced are owned by the same user. Is there anything I can do to refresh to the previously set settings or is there anything I have overlooked in the install to prevent this happening next tim
  18. Just a heads up for any one using the aur package on arch linux. It seems like the resilio sync from aur has the wrong pid_file option in the default config in /etc/. This line "pid_file" : "/var/run/btsync/" should be "pid_file" : "/var/run/rslsync/". The error disabled the startup service. systemctl status rslsync.service returned ● rslsync.service - Resilio Sync service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rslsync.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2016-11-11 14:25:25 CET; 19min ago Main PID: 10
  19. Good day, I've been successfully running btsync 1.3.8 on CentOS 7.3. I am looking to update to latest (1.4.1) and have a few questions: 1. The upgrade instructions state I need to place the rslsync along btsync. Where is that? /var/lib/btsync/? /var/lib/btsync has a folder .SyncUserxxxxxxx. Is that the folder you mean by ".sync" 2. I have the old btsync repo under /etc/yum.repos.d If i add the new repo for resilio, will that work with above manual install? 3. Will old shares be preserved? Thank you,
  20. I am trying to run Resilio Sync 2.4.1 on a Raspberry pi 3 running Raspbian. I followed these instructions: Installing Sync Package On Linux and the service comes up with two instances running, here is the output of ps -axu | grep resil to demonstrate: rslsync 660 0.1 0.7 84232 7544 ?

  22. Hi, I recently purchased Sync Pro from Resilio, but it seems to be having issues on my headless Raspberry Pi 3 backup server. My setup is as follows: Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian Jessie Lite Resilio Sync 2.4.1 for Linux ARM During the install process, I've created the following Sync configuration file: { "device_name": "Raspberry Pi Backup", "listening_port" : 0, "pid_file" : "/var/run/", "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "webui": { "listen" : "", "login" : "admin",
  23. I am running Ubuntu 15.10 and just installed Resilio to sync some folders from my LAN connected NAS over the web. When I try to add a folder from the NAS, it gives me the error "Don't have permissions to write to selected folder" Any help? TYFYC Fondue
  24. Hello everyone. I upgraded to the new btSync passing Resilio version now called 4.1.2 on my devices: QNAP NAS TS-220 PC Windows 10 + dual Boot Linux Kubuntu 16.04 I'm having problems with the time, in spite of all devices must use the update via NTP time server and time zone is set correctly (Rome UTC +1) On the Linux PC, Resilio tells me this error: and in the footer of the page: I tried to change the variable sync_max_time_diff bringing it up to 10800 (the default value is 600 -> 10 minutes) but the error remains.

  25. Resilio looks like what I need and I am hoping to buy Pro My use case - sync 1 windows desktop folder and sub folders with Linux Server (hosting a website) and AWS EC2 server It looks like I am missing the Getting Started Manual and or Tutorials or - presumes user has lots of experience working with servers. eg "Installing Sync on Linux" starts with:" If you have btsync package installed", then goes on to Create file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/resilio-sync.list + more instructions.
