  1. I've been using BtSync for a while now, and I'm quite happy with it. However, recently my ISP has decided to start migrating everybody to IPv6, and I can't access my (Linux) server's WebUI from an external network anymore. From the internal network it's working if I use the server's private IPv4 address. I'm able to access that server's SSHd over IPv6 though, so I think my setup is correct. It seems to me that the WebUI code doesn't support IPv6. Can anyone confirm this? Are there plans for support (hopefully in the short term)?
  2. I have a thin client environment using LTSP - basically a bunch of thin clients all log into the same Linux server via XDMCP - all apps run on the server, not on the thin clients. The issue is that if a user starts btsync (running on the server), all other users also logged into the server can access that user's btsync web interface, including folders, secrets etc. It would be trivial to steal files in this way. This is also a problem on any shared multi-user Linux system where multiple users can login at the same time (using Ubuntu fast user switching for example) - this is common in a family setting. Is there a way of password protecting the Web UI or something?
  3. I have a question: What is the difference between the i386 and the glibc23_i386 versions (same for amd64 and glibc23_amd64)? Apparently both run on every version of linux I have tested it on, so what's the matter? Here some versions from different machines: Debian 6 (squeeze): tuxpoldo ~ # dpkg -l | grep glib ii libglib2.0-0 2.24.2-1 The GLib library of C routines Debian 7 (wheezy): ape-gate ~ # dpkg -l | grep glib (nothing - no glib installed? Impossible!) Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) ccm-mgmt ~ # dpkg -l | grep glib ii libglib2.0-0 2.24.1-0ubuntu2 The GLib library of C routines Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) yeasoft-gate2 ~ # dpkg -l | grep -i glib ii libglib2.0-0 2.32.3-0ubuntu1 GLib library of C routines If I look at the internal bindings: yeasoft-gate2 ~/testbtsync # ldd btsync-normal => (0x00007ffffcbff000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f9a58a4a000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f9a58846000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f9a58549000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f9a5832c000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f9a57f6d000) /lib64/ (0x00007f9a58c5b000) yeasoft-gate2 ~/testbtsync # ldd btsync-glibc23 => (0x00007fff13fff000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab38fff000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab38dfb000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab38afe000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab388e8000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab386cb000) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007fab3830b000) /lib64/ (0x00007fab39210000) The only difference is that the glibc23 version loads an additional library ( and has some different memory mapping.. Which one should be used?
  4. Hi, I just set up BTsync on my local Linux Laptop. The problem is, that it only syncs with hosts on the Local Area Network. All other hosts (even if added manually as predefined hosts) are completely ignored. I also have a Windows machine in this network, which syncs fine to the remote hosts. This is the config file I'm using for this machine: The port 15000 is forwarded and reachable from the outside. I manually rechecked the secrets several times, and they are definitely correct, because sync with another machine on the local network works, and that same machine DOES connect to the other hosts with the same secrets. Restarting BTSync and rebooting the system did NOT fix this. It doesn't connect to the remote hosts, whether or not other hosts are present in the LAN, so this does not seem to be the issue either. Here's the last 1000 entries from the debug log:
  5. I dumped the sample configuration, and it says this: // Advanced preferences can be added to config file. // Info is available in BitTorrent Sync User Guide. So I pulled the options from the guide, and attempted to add them to the config file (using the ppa from here). I'm no JSON expert, but I fail to see where I'm going wrong: { "pid_file" : "", "storage_path" : ".btsync", "listening_port" : 0, "check_for_updates" : true, "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, “disk_low_priority” : true, “lan_encrypt_data” : false, “lan_use_tcp” : true, “rate_limit_local_peers” : false, "webui" : { "listen" : "" } } When starting with those options I get the following error: Error while parsing config file: Unexpected end of config file (are you missing '}') ? If I delete the 4 "advanced" options, it works again. Are they supposed to go in their own section? If so, what does that look like? TIA, Peter
  6. I started using Sync with Ubuntu 12.04 last week. Over the weekend, for some reason the size of one folder in the hidden .SyncTrash directory skyrocketed, and when I started using the computer today my hard drive was completely full. I was wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar and might know what caused this problem, and what I can do to avoid it in the future. Thanks.
  7. Hi! I want to do my own webUI for BTSync which proposes for everyone to put their folders in ro on my server to increase sync speed for future syncs. Is BTSync dynamically reads the config file? Is there a way to check if a secret is a one-time read-only secret? I want to do it on a debian server, using nodejs. Thanks.
  8. I'm setting up a new debian VPS to support my BTSync habit. Is there any reason to use a 64-bit install? Will it handle very large files better, or does the app chunk files up enough that it doesn't matter?
  9. Seems like the webui is not able to add folders with special characters in the name Here is an example: Try adding a folder like this /data/share/# Sales & Marketing Package When clicking the add button, nothing happens.
  10. SyncApp doesn't currently prevent multiple copies of itself from being launched. This is probably a known issue, but just wanted to mention it. I installed it on my linux machine, and ran it. Later, forgetting that it was running, I moved the binary to another folder, and launched it from there. Everything appeared to be working fine, since the first copy was already running, until I noticed my CPU was pegged at 100%. I killed the first copy's process, but the CPU was still stuck at 100%, it was the second copy that was having problems. It wasn't until I killed it as well and restarted it that it began to work normally with minimal CPU usage. It is also interesting (and not unexpected) to note that while I had two copies of SyncApp running, none of the other computers on my network could determine my computer's name, and my computer wouldn't show other computer names. They would connect and sync files, but they just displayed an IP address instead. As soon as I fixed the issue and had only a single instance running, names appeared as expected.
  11. Hello, Firstly, as this is my first post, I want to congratulate the team for their work. I think this is a KillerApp Dropbox, GoogleDrive ... I just want to give you a comment on a "cosmetic" bug. I have a laptop at 1366x768 and Sharing the buttons are poorly placed. See Attachment is is more telling.
  12. Recently I tried to run Sync App on my old NAS based on SL3516 CPU. But I got an error message like "-sh: ./SyncApp_arm-1.0.75: No such file or directory." I made sure the execute are on correct location. So that error does not indicating executive file missing. I guess this is some kind of compatibility issue, isn't it?
  13. I was added few folders in the Linux gui (Ubuntu) on 8888 port. Then I was refreshed gui page... and now folder list is empty :/ I tried to add my folders again.. and after page refresh I again saw empty list. But synchronization is working fine.
  14. I'm looking forward to sync coming out. I've used a couple products with varying degrees of success. I'm hoping that a cross platform (linux/windows/android) capabilities so I can ditch box. Also I'm building out my own private cloud and need a sync type of interface. Good luck with it and I'll be waiting! :-) Linuxed
