  1. Hi, Everyone, I hope someone can help someone who's kinda' new to this. I know it may sound stupid but I'm a little clueless with networking stuff. I would be very grateful for any assistance. I have two basic questions. One is about predefined hosts and the other is about the use of VPN's with Resilio Sync. Question #1: Is using predefined hosts the safest and fastest method of syncing between two remote computers? It appears that using predefined hosts is the safest method of syncing files between two remote places (let's say my home and my old computer at my parent's home). Is that correct? Also, is using predefined hosts the FASTEST method of syncing my files? It appears not to be the case. Whenever I use the tracker or relay option, syncing seems to be a lot faster. I checked all my firewall and port settings. They seem to be all correctly set up. Are predefined hosts the fastest method? And what common mistakes do people make when they set things up that prevent it from being the fastest connection? Question #2: If I set up a VPN network to connect the computer at my home and the computer at my parent's house so everything acts like they are on the same network, is Resilio Sync necessary? At my parent's house, I had set up a NAS on their network. If I kept all my personal folders and files on the NAS, couldn't I simply access all my files via the VPN network whether I'm at my home or my parent's house? Thanks in advance for any guidance people can give me. I've been toying around with Resilio Sync for a while and I'm not getting the hang out of it.
  2. When I travel I frequently use OpenVPN for security. But as soon as I establish a VPN connection, my peers disappear. Do I really have to choose between a secure connection and syncing my files, or is there some solution to this dilemma?
  3. Is there a single port, or a group of ports I can block on a firewall to prevent direct client to client transfers over our WAN links. These transfers are much quicker when routed via the internet, but right now clients are directly sending data via our site to site links. The firewall rule would be implemented directly on the site to site link.
  4. Currently, when sync runs between two hosts at different locations on our WAN, the traffic is pushed through our IPSEC tunnels saturating the connection and the transfer speed is significantly slowed. Is there a firewall rule I can put in place that will make this traffic traverse the internet instead of going over these links?
  5. Greetings! I'm new to ResilioSync, and I have a few questions. I'm on Windows 10 Pro x64, using Resilio 2.4.2. Is there still a way to determine if a connection is being made via Direct as opposed to via Internet/Relay? I gather that in the past there were icons that indicated this, but I'm not clear on where I would be seeing those if they are in fact present. In my Peers list I don't see any icons currently. My Peers are reachable via a VPN connection, and so in theory should get treated as Local (which is what I want). However, sometimes the VPN goes down. During that time I assume that Resilio will switch to connecting via the Internet/Relay (as I've currently allowed for that in my settings). What I'm wondering is, will Resilio periodically try again to connect via Local/Direct? My preference is that it would switch back to Local/Direct as soon as Local is available again, but I'm wondering if it is built to (or if there is a way to configure it to) automatically do that? Note that I am okay with it connecting via Internet/Relay temporarily -- I just want it to revert to Local/Direct and give preference to that when possible (ie, I don't want to it switch to Internet and then never switch back to Local/Direct). Thanks!
  6. Dear forum, I'm using BTSync since its very first days and only had minor issued till now. However, the last days things are getting worse :-( One of my clients recieves internet only via a VPN connection that is routed via an VPN provided in Sweden (Ipredator). This client does not get any connect to other clients. BTSync says often that there would be no tracker server found and even though I allow relay servers for all folders, there is no connection. It's definetly an issue with the VPN connection. As soon as I plug in another connection to this machine, all the BTSync share come up for sync. I'm confused as the VPN provider does not filter anything to my knowledge. Does anybody here have any tip for me, how to get to the reason of this issue and how I could get this machine involved into sync? Thanks Norbert
  7. Hi there, before i start, a small description about my current setup: 6 PCs in Germany (windows 8, 64 Bit)All connected via VPNAll running the latest version (1.3.106)One of these PCs is calles "SRV", the other 5 (call them A,B,C,D,E) have all only the read-only secret of SRVAll have the same configuration:​​==> NaT-UPnP-Port-Mapping enabled==> Relay-Servers, Trackerservers, Localnetwork-search, DHT are all disabledNo proxies are used hereWith this configuration the clients are syncing with SRV without any problem, BUT they are not syncing with each other. They don't even see each other as devices. Only "SRV" is listed (though surely, SRV has all deviced in the list). If we now activate "allow relayserver" on all clients an restart btsync, after a few secounds, they all see each other as deviced and start to sync with each other. The Other devices listet have the relay-symbol next to them. (I just add this here: The bug of the speedlimit not applying to relayserver-connections is known and will be fixed shortly?) My question now: Why don't they see each other when relayservers are disabled? We sure have a firewall running (pfSense), but all of these clients have a rule to have completely unrestricted acces to the internet. Is this something that is meant to be this way? From the description of the relay-servers, i would assume that they are just a workaround if it doesn't work without them (due to firewall-limitations). Please help me understanding this Best wishes spYro
  8. I use a vpn for connecting to work etc and I've noticed if I start BTSync before the vpn it works fine with all the machines on my lan (That are also connected to the internet) But if I start my VPN after the connections stay blank until the second I kill the openvpn connection then it all starts working again I'm Running Debian Wheezy (7) 64Bit and Version 1.0.134 of BTSync anyone else seeing this before I report a bug I can't search for VPN as min search term is 4 letters
  9. Hello Community, i use a VPN to connect to my fathers Network. BTSync works with disabled VPN at max. Speed. With enabled VPN (Fritzbox <-> Fritzbox) it slows down to 5 kb/s. I already tried predefined Hosts (IP-Adress + Ports in BTSync). Any Hints ? Greetings Dancekid
