  1. Hello I downloaded the latest stable version of bittorrent sync for linux to my VPS. I used this howto: Here is my configuration file: { "device_name": "My Sync Device", "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port/* storage_path dir contains auxilliary app files if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in the directory where binary is located. otherwise user-defined directory will be used */"storage_path" : "/home/roberth1990/.btsync",/* set location of pid file */// "pid_file" : "~/btsync/",/* use UPnP for port mapping */ "use_upn
  2. Currently have a running system between two computers (two Ubuntu servers) running v1.4. I have resisted upgrading to v2.0 until I added my third computer (Debian server) to the mix. That third computer is now functional. I intend to add the third computer with v1.4. After I am sure everything is functioning properly (and the third computer bittorrent directory is populated) then I would upgrade all machines to v2.0. (All computers are non-gui cammand line servers.) Does this computer addition/upgrade sequence seem illogical? Am I overlooking anything?
  3. So, running btsync on linux (64bit nixos), it is creating a new identity everytime I reboot the server. The btsync user: btsync:x:113:498:Bittorrent Sync Service user:/srv/data/btsync2:/run/current-system/sw/bin/nologin His home directory: drwx------ 1 btsync btsync 252 Apr 14 14:48 /srv/data/btsync2 The config file: { "device_name": "fancydevicename", "storage_path": "/srv/data/btsync2", "listening_port": 45654, "use_gui": false, "check_for_updates": false, "use_upnp": false, "download_limit": 0, "upload_limit": 0, "lan_encrypt_data": true,
  4. Hallo, as I haven't found an answer to this question I'll just try it here. My assumption is that the "Sync with..." status of peers is chaining such that peers appear as synced (and online) even though this information is only available through one of the peers. Can somebody confirm that? Let me explain my setup. I am using BitTorrent Sync without tracker and relay server. Those are disabled for every folder on every machine and instead predefined hosts are used to talk to the other peers. I am using two 24/7 linux servers behind a NAT-router without upnp where only one of the servers h
  5. As mentioned in this thread selective syncing isn't available on Linux: In my opinion selective sync is one of the killer features of btsync. Getting this on Linux would be great. Keep up the great work.
  6. The problem I manually rsynced a large mp3 directory to an ext4-formatted micro SD card on my Linux computer, proceeded to mount the card on my Cyanogenmod 11-equipped Galaxy S5 with correct permissions, and added the directory to the Sync app with a read-only key. When syncing it manually on the phone, it will start "Receiving" but never finish, with a minimal ~7B/s transfer rate. Details The music folder in question contains 17.07GB and 2872 files. The files are mostly mp3s ranging from 1 to 10 MB in size.The folder syncs successfully between two Linux computers running Ubuntu 14.10, U
  7. I've set up a linux server with bittorrent sync. The folders are on an external HDD drive. After almost 24h it finally finished indexing - yes the server is slow - but the HDD still doesn't spin down. This is a little troubling, I'm sure the external HDD is not supposed to run non-stop. Apparently this is connected to the indexing intervals. Sync will check the folder for changes every 10 minutes and that keeps the HDD from spinning down. I need to adjust this indexing interval. This seemed perfect:
  8. I'm using sync 1.4 on linux systems. It works very well except on one box. This particular box has just rebuilt with a fresh in stall of linux and bittorrent sync and we are having the same problem. I'm trying to have a number of systems sync to a common directory on a server (since the server is up 24/7). 2 of the 3 systems work flawlessly moving back an forth the few files that have changed. But one of the system takes many minutes (as many as 30) to sync up even though there are just a handfull of files that have changed. While the sync is happening bittorrent sync says "out of sync
  9. Hello, Quick question here. Also, new to this forum and really like the advances in this sites tec have taken of late with being the most impressive in my eyes. My current set up is centos/linux digital ocean mac air. I have a non SSL (could not configure with after many tries) running for the VPN with my mac. Ideally, what i want to do is make it so that my files are removed from my mac air as soon as the sync with the linux preventing my storage to be full. Is it just a matter of me not disconnecting to the folder with the mac? I tried to move the files out from the shared of the se
  10. I've been using BTSync for a while now and it's absolutely fantastic! I've just set it up to sync a load of my files between my computer, an external hard drive in my house connected to a Raspberry Pi, and a second Raspberry Pi and external hard drive in my parents house. This had been working very well but today I rebooted the Pi at my parents house and when it came on the GUI (ipAddress:8888/gui) prompted for an account to be created and then showed the no folders message. On the other syncing devices it shows it as offline. I copied the contents of the .sync folder somewhere else so I c
  11. Hi, I've been using btsync since the very early beta days, and it's great for my needs. One thing that I noticed was that I had migrated my data from an old system to the new system, and the system name still reflects the old system. Upon going into the configuration in 1.4.103 (updated yesterday), I went to change the name of the system, only to find the Edit button wasn't there. Doing a little research, it seems that there are two formats for the config file - an old (binary) format, and a new text-based format. My systems all use the binary format. Is there a way to convert the config
  12. Dear Bittorrent Sync team, Your application on my computer seems to be working mostly fine, except for one very annoying bug: I am running two linux machines (Antergos, on newest update), both are running bittorrent sync and syncing a folder with read/write access. These two computers are, before this bug occurs, perfectly in sync. Both have the same files and folder structure. Now, on one of the computers (called A), I have a directory (let's call it "root_dir") with a lot of files. In order to clean up this directory a bit, I wish to move (from the command line), about half of them to
  13. Hello , i want to sync my several Android devices with my home Linux box. I have installed BitTorrent Sync 1.4.93 on my Linux box and last version of app on all my Android devices. I want to sync (backup) my phone/tablet camera pictures. As you can image on all Android devices folder with this pictures is named "DCIM". First one device had synced with no problem. But when I try to add new device in new folder on my Linux have error, that folder with this name is exist and I can't add second (or third, or next) device. Can anyone advise me how can i avoid this problem?
  14. Hi, I've tried setitng up BTSync with systemd on Linux (Fedora 20). I followed the instructions here: Which I've got loading for my user on boot OK but when it loads it always fails to connect to any peers until I reboot the service. It always almost immediately connects to a local peer once I've restarted the service. Here is the log where it fails to connect: Nov 03 07:01:38 nixon btsync[657]: By using this application, you agree to our Privacy Policy, Terms of Use and End User Li
  15. Hi all, I installed the 1.4.93 build manually on Linux following this tutorial (so not using the synocommunity package) and would like to upgrade to the 1.4.99 build, but what steps / commands do I need to follow? I did not find an "update guide"? Thanks for helping this n00b ;-)
  16. Hi, I'm trying to develop an application based on BitTorrent Sync, written in C++. My main difficulty at this time is to manage the btsync process, I was wondering if there's someone here who knows c++ and who could possibly help me with that. In fact I've already asked on StackOverflow: As this question is intrinsically linked to Btsync, I though it would be a good idea to look for help here as well. So, if you think you can help, or know someone who can, please do! Thanks everyon
  17. After upgrading from 1.4.82 to 1.4.92 on my raspberry pi the gui starts fine but all synced folders vanished. Renaming the files *.dat.old to *.dat does not help. Ho can I restore my sync configuration?
  18. I've just updated to 1.4.91 on my headless server, and the web gui is missing. Browser will not find a page at all. Is it still located at http://localhost:8888/gui? Or in my case, accessing it over my network, http://serverip:8888/gui? Note, I am running directly from the binary from a "bin" folder in $home. I'm not using any packages.
  19. Hi there! My btsync service will no longer start on my Arch laptop. systemctl status shows: btsync[4925]: Can't open pid file /usr/bin/.sync// Permission denied There is a file at /usr/bin/.sync/, so I guess the double slash is just wrong. How do I point btsync to the correct location? Thanks for any help.
  20. Hi, I have two Android devices (one Android v4.2.2, the other v4.4.2) both running v1.4.44.0, and an Ubuntu 14.04 machine running v1.4.0-4. I have created some read-only (I think now called 'backup' in v1.4?) syncs on my Android devices, which I'm syncing to my Ubuntu box. One of these is working, but a couple of them show as "Out Of Sync" on both the Android client and the Ubuntu web gui. My hunch is that this happened after I changed the .sync/IgnoreList and restarted btsync on the Ubuntu machine. In the sync.log on the Ubuntu machine, the two folders that are not syncing both gener
  21. Hello, is it really necessary to have a static port number? If not please change it to a random one like in utorrent. This should make it harder to be blocked by local firewalls (ie. chinese GFW). As a little extra this port can change every x minutes and switch between udp and tcp. or misuse common ports like 21, 25, 80, ... I am using torrent sync to backing up domains from a linux server. The program has a --dump-sample-config parameter. But it would be extremly nice to convert these binary config data that only can be changed via the web ui to a text like for reusing it on other masch
  22. openSUSE Factory x64 ~ Cannot write to /home/fleamour/Music despite chmoding folder with 777 switch. Is this a bug?
  23. Hello! I use btsync on ubuntu machines and now .sync/Archive folder ir even bigger than rest of sync folder. Is it possible to disable archiving or at least somehow limiting size of it. I found how to do that in windows client, but i have only one windows machine the rest of them are linux. Is it ok if i just delete this folder? Please help.
  24. I am new to this and need to find the correct way of synchronising data. What I want to achieve is the following: Have a server in a SOHO setupLinux Mint to run on serverLinux Mint on deskrops and laptops, but will consider Windows 8.1 or OS X. Currently have Mint 17 Qiana Xfce on my own laptop and my son has his MacbookPro with the latest Mavericks updates.Mobile devices presently iPhone 5S and Android 4.2.1 on Huawei.Future mobile devices could also include WP8.1 or even BlackberryThis is still far from happening but we could, when we open new offices, host user data on a central server a
  25. Since updating my Linux install from 1.3 to 1.4 my gui is no longer showing my shares, however they do seem to still be syncing with other devices. I notice that there's no downgrade possible from 1.4 but do I have to do any conversion on the upgrade? Cheers, Jamie
