  1. Hi Team, I have a strange anomaly with BtSync 2. The problem arose from version x.104! I have two QNAP NAS and one CentOS server, the two NAS share the same folders while the server only two. After a few days of the starting the two NAS BtSync lose synchronization bringing me back "0 of 0 peers" for some folders. Just that I reboot the BtSync process in one of two NAS and everything goes back to work. The strange thing is that some folders are synchronized, some not. And if I go to Menu> "My Devices ..." I'm not seeing the other devices. But the folders still active synchronizes properly. I am attaching some screenshots! I restarted the process, only in one NAS, and synchronization is active in ALL folders.
  2. Sorry if this is clearly spelled out in the EULA - I'ven ever understood those things. Just wondering if I could sell an application I build that is based on btsync?
  3. My btsync is constantly causing low traffic, even if all files are in sync. What is it doing? Is it constantly pinging other peers? This is draining my laptop battery. How can I avoid this?
  4. Hi, It is my understanding that it should be possible to tunnel BTSYNC through ssh and bypass then any firewall configuration, but I haven't been able to find any guide AND I cannot make it work. What I do: - In my work computer configure putty to tunnel the (source) port 15000 to the IP of my home connection, where the destination is dynamic. - Configure my home router to forward the 22 connection towards my raspberry pi - Start putty and log into my raspberry pi ssh server - In my computer configure BTSYNC to use a socks (4 or 5) proxy pointing to localhost:15000 And that should work or I am wrong? It doesn't as BT doesn't find any peer. And if I configure Firefox to use this proxy server, I do have internet and my IP looks like my home IP, so I'd say putty is working as it is expected. Then, what is the problem? Thanks,
  5. I upgraded to 1.4. I have a client on Windows 8.1 64-bit behind a proxy. I have one folder that finds peers and syncs properly. No other folders I have added will find peers. The secrets are correct. The Preferences settings are apparently the same. All of the other folders say "no peers".
  6. Up to now with you mobile you could only generate a full access key only from a pc\nas and not from a mobile ? Why? This limitations seems very stupid and ugly! Up to now with my mobile I could generate a read only key or ADD a full access key (generated in anothe place) !! Let be the mobilephone able to GENERATE a read\write secret code as windows\osx\nas can do !!
  7. Hello everyone, New to BTS, this forum and Linux! I have BTSync up and running just fine with My Cloud EX2, iOS8 and Windows 8.1. Very nice tool! I've searched high and low for a solution to enable BTS on (restart) boot up for the WD My Cloud EX2 NAS device and cannot find one that will work. I've tried various solutions but ultimately the EX2 doesn't have the chkconfig or update-rc.d commands/modules. I'm running the latest BTS client and WD firmware on the EX2. uname -r - 3.2.40 uname -a - Linux Cloud 3.2.40 #3 Tue Jul 29 18:09:51 CST 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux Thanks for your time and any help you can provide!
  8. I have performed the following test: Installed btsync on my desktop and NAS On my PC created folder TestFolder with files and Added this folder to btsync through http://localhost:8888 Copied read-only secret Entered http://nas-ip:8888 in order to add my PC folder to sync (with the read-only secret) Content was synced between my NAS and PC Added, removed and modified files on my PC - changes were applied to NAS (as expected) Removed file (e.g. from NAS - nothing happened to my PC folder (as expected) I expected the file ( to be sent back to NAS once next sync event was triggered (i.e. within 10 minutes) but nothing happen (not expected) The questions is: how do I resync files that were mistakenly deleted from NAS? In a way it's a nice feature not to download such files (well, since they were removed, then most likely I don't want them to sync), but I'd appreciate a simple way to force a full sync. Did anyone else experience similar issue? Is there any workaround?

  10. Hello, I'd like to sync my Android-Pictures to my Laptop and an always-on-RaspberryPi. Following setup after creating Secrets via API: Laptop: ReadWrite Android: ReadWrite RasPi: EncryptedSecret For testing purposes I closed BTSync on my Laptop, and expected a transmission of pictures to my RasPi. But nothing happened. BTSync showed a connected Peer, even correctly displaying the amount of Data and the numbers of Files, but my Android-Phone just did not want to sync. I turned my Laptop on, and my Phone started syncing to my Laptop - which succesfully synced to the RaspberryPi. Turning my Laptop off after a while - sync from Android to RasPi wont continue. Adding the ReadWrite Secret to the RaspberryPi works like a charm - but other people have access to the attached storage as well, so I would like to store my pictures encrypted.... Any Ideas? Just Reinstalled BTSync without Backup/Restore, did not help. FYI: I'm encountering the "App crashes regulary error" (Already discussed in some other topics) as well, before the reinstallation just as afterwards, stopped crashing when attached to a power source [did not]. Thank you very much in advance Sincerely Dominik edit: after the reinstall BTSync on my RasPi does not receive the correct number of files anymore, on my Laptop it does. edit2: well, it does get the number of files after a while.... and even whilst crashing everytime, the backround-sync does work anyway
  11. platform Windows, Btsync version 1.4.93 beta We are using our own keys. I tried to add a new folder on this machine, but cannot use my own key. I also launched btsync as admin. Is that not possible anymore? regards Max
  12. Hello, First of all, sorry for my bad english. I would like to cover a folder at my server with bitsync, automatic I will add a few files that are backups from my database, they will sync correctly and work fine, but when I delete these files from my server, I would like to not delete it from the other peer. I notice a few things about the permissions, Read and Write, but when I create only to read, the files add will not be sync and with the other peer. Well, is there any sugestion to add files, sync and then remove the add files from one of the sources? Best regard´s.
  13. Hi there. I'm wondering if it's possible to have two servers (in two different locations) that are mirrored, so that you would only have to set up the folders on one of the servers, instead of having to do it on both? I realize there's probably going to be some manual work that has to be done on both servers, but it would be awesome if after that, you would only need to access one of the servers. Best regards
  14. I have been using BitTorrent Sync for a while. I've tried many different cloud backup solutions (including several other peer-to-peer backup tools) and finally choose BitTorrent Sync and Dropbox as my cloud backup solutions. Generally speaking, BitTorrent Sync is fast once it starts to synchronize. However, I found quite often that BitTorrent Sync waits for a long time (about 5 to 6 minutes) to start synchronization. As BitTorrent Sync has no reliable way to show synchronization progress on Linux (don't trust the web UI) currently, it is very annoying for me as I constently use multiple computers at the same time. To address this issue, I even wrote a bash script to test whether a local file has been synchronized with the remote one. Dropbox on the contrast is much better on real-time synchronization. Changes on files in the Dropbox folder is almost immediately captured. I wonder whether BitTorrent Sync can do a better job to detect changes faster? Perhaps cache freqently changed files?
  15. My device: RedMi Note HK version FW version: MIUI-JDHMIBF30.0 Android version: 4.2.2 JDQ39 BTsync client: V1.4.44 Case: 1. Open btsync 2. Take photo from QRcode to get secret 3. Sync folder created 4. Click ... to this sync folder, the btsync crash and go back to launcher screen. Is this a bug? What can I do? I cannot delete this share folder link now....
  16. Hello All, I found btsync to be the app I am looking for to sync my desktop data with my laptop, I am running into a problem however. I run two systems, one is arch 64 on a large asus laptop which I use as my desktop. The other system is ubuntu x64 14.04. Both are newest versions. The installation guides I followed, configs and logs will be posted below, I will first define the problem. After installing btsync everything worked quit well, so I left the two devices on overnight to be able to sync all the 222Gbs of data. Waking up in the morning I found that both machines were still on, the webinterface of btsync was responding but the syncing had stopped at 118.92 GBs, allthough there should be 222GBs in there. I restarted everything, but no luck. Took a look at the logs and come upon repeating error messages on both machines. On arch I see messages similar like these: [20140821 15:48:01.084] Incoming connection from[20140821 15:52:03.523] NAT-PMP: Unable to map port with NAT-PMP.[20140821 15:52:20.516] UPnP: Device error "": (110) offline (timed out)[20140821 15:52:25.768] UPnP: Device error "": (-2) is my laptop device in this case, I set it to port 7331 On Ubuntu I find them similar like these: [20140821 16:12:03.274] TorrentFile: Failed to create empty suffix for file "/storage/data/Tom/Pictures/Foto's/2012-7-4 CatchUp Clubvolley/Selection/jpeg/2012-07-04_18:55:32.jpg" - 22[20140821 16:12:03.274] SyncFilesController: failed to load torrent for file "/storage/data/Tom/Pictures/Foto's/2012-7-4 CatchUp Clubvolley/Selection/jpeg/2012-07-04_18:55:32.jpg" config files and logs are found on I followed this ubuntu guide: And this guide on ARCH: to install btsync. Hope anybody can help .
  17. Hi! I've updated btsync from 1.3.106 to 1.3.109 on one of my PC and now I can't share any folder place inside my home folder. All my shared folders has disappeared from web interface, and the explorer tree to share new folder don't show any folder deeper than /home/myuser/ My system is Arch Linux and I launch BtSync as service. Before this update worked perfect. I've an other PC with Ubuntu and btsync 1.3.109 also, launched as service too, and in it works correctly. I thinks than my problems with Arch may be with the permissions, but I don't know how to solve that. Anyone have any idea that I can do? Thanks! Edit: I've solved the problem. I only must launch process as a user service: systemctl --user start btsync
  18. Hi, I have a few folders setup for syncing. Most of them work fine but I have issues with folders that contain many files and subfolders. I have a music library that I know is about 53.8 GB in size and contains 11,092 items but in btsync I only see 50.1 GB 9,483 files. The diff in items vs. files could probably be due to that items take folders into account but I would expect the size to match. When I later try to sync this folder to another computer via btsync I see the arrow for download and also the size 50.1 GB that needs to be downloaded but is seem like nothing actually gets downloaded. When I go into the folder on the computer I try to sync to I can see the subfolders but no files. How should I investigate this issue? Any ideas on what is going wrong is welcome.
  19. Hi, I’m a member of a very small btsync network (4 clients) where the most of us use btsync ARM 1.3.94 on Synology NAS or Raspberry Pi platform. We have to synchronize large data files and discovered a suboptimal behavior of btsync regarding performance which can be easily reproduced: Imagine you have 3 clients A, B and C where A is able to see B but not C. B can see both others clients. This can be a situation where A is a system in the internet, B in a local network WITH access to the internet but C is a client in the same local network but WITHOUT access to the internet and only able to see B, so the test configuration is: A <-> B <-> C The upload rate A -> B is SMALLER (this is important!) than the upload rate B->C. When client A starts to synchronize a very large data file with B but C is still offline then there will be with growing time more and more data on B which will be synchronized with C once it is started. If C is now started and it empties the amount of data on B to be transferred to C by the high upload rate from B->C BEFORE A has finished its upload to B then any new data on B WILL NOT be transferred to C until the upload from A to B has ended or the btsync client on C was restarted. In other words while the transfer of data from A to B there is no continuous data transfer between B and C once the client C thinks it is in synchronal state with B by no new data. C has to wait until the upload to B has finished before it gets new data … which is of course not very efficient. The upper configuration is just to express a simple environment; the issue also happens if all clients are connected via internet connection but a receiving machine has higher upload to the others in the network than the link between the first sender and this receiving client.
  20. No Agenda (best podcast in the universe) has been using Bittorrent Sync for a long time now to distribute the podcast to many users all over the world. Just in the last month or so, it has been failing to deliver the newest episodes in a timely fashion. Just today on the show, it was mentioned by a listener that the reason it may not be working any more is that there is a limit of 50 users of the secret at a time? I do not believe this, but I have definitely seen a difference in the delivery of the files to my Read-Only No Agenda folder. This folder is shared by tons of users, and we have all noticed a drop in the speed of our podcasts and related files being delivered. Please advise... is there a limit or is this woman simply misinformed, and something else may be causing the problem?
  21. Hi, can some of you explain to me how a btsync client decides what upload bandwidth will be used to the other members sharing the same secret? Background: When my team (consisting of 5 clients) shares data over the internet we can see at the seeder client, the system with the lowest upload bandwidth gets the most bandwidth from the seeder. "iftop" is a nice tool to check this on a Linux client. We have here the effect while transferring large data files that the clients with the smallest upload capability get ready first and the systems with largest possible upload bandwidth finish at last and this in a strict order! This is obviously the wrong order since it would be of course optimal to fill the client with the highest upload capability first so this resource can be fully used while distributing the data instead of waiting for the clients with the smallest capability to upload data to the others. But perhaps this simply bases on the understanding of the algorithm used and can be influenced somehow, so that's why I'm asking this question, here. Greetings from Germany
  22. hello, I'm using btsync to manage a pool of distributed computing node and for deployment on artifacts. I know I can triggered `btsync-core` to start the syncing session, but is there a way to know whether my folder has been 100% downloaded/sync'd? I was looking for something like this:
  23. HI, I have a QNAP TS-269L NAS 3tb and I have successfully installed btsync on it and all seems to work perfectly apart from when it comes to actually syncing. I have installed version 1.3.94 and it says this is the latest version, I have confirmed that the btsync program is running, folders added using readonly secret key. Adds the folders just fine, lists everything but then this is where normally it starts twitching, indexing, uploads, downloads, transfer rates. The NAS version doesn't seem to do this :/ I've tried turning off antivirus on the NAS box but this made no difference at all it just sits there (I monitored for 2hrs, nothing). any suggestions welcomed BigB
  24. There are multiple btsync instances (devices) in 2 distinct locations. Each location is protected with network based firewall (UPnP disabled for security reasons in both locations). If I understand correctly, upon device boot (if btsync starts automatically), btsync connects to Tracker server, to inform about device, hashes, current IP and port it's listening. (that's why it is FW friendly). Please correct me if I'm wrong. And thus, all BTsync instances can find each other, if they have to negotiate over internet. Here are a couple of questions and assumptions: - Because BTsync is FW friendly (see above my understanding), it should not be a requirement to introduce any particular firewall settings allowing UDP traffic to come in, and all other instances should get acknowledged on new ports/ip addresses. Q: Why there are btsync instances, which try to hit firewall on particular UDP ports (44943), obviously getting blocked, to get connection, if they should not? (the sync is working correctly any way). - If still, some firewall configurations should be deployed, allowing incoming UDP traffic and port redirection, then there might be a conflict with listening ports, if configured manually. This means, that each btinstance behind teh firewall should be configured manually, looking to not place 2 or more instances on the same listening ports. Thus it might be configured in firewall with UDP and port redirection particularly. I'd obviously try to escape this config, if it is not requirement, to lower burden on management and tracking. Q: Are there still requirements for firewall configurations and should incoming UDP traffic, including port redirection, be deployed, to allow BTsync to run flawlessly? Appreciate your comments and insights on causes, why it's happening. P.S. Actually just noticed, that the same happens to TCP connections too. So it might be related.
  25. I suggest to enable android (or mobile) version to generate secret in order to share in read+write mode a folders of the mobile phone without using a pc. At the moment you can only create e read only (backup) or sync a read+write folder created with a pc !!!
