  1. I setup my folder to be added to sync ("/opt/guestBook/guestsRecordings"), and after executing the sync.conf config file, noticed the .sync folder added to the folder. However, when I used the read/write secret key that I generated for the config file, there were no files available to sync to my PC (even though the source linux system had files to sync). Hoping to use this .conf file to allow folder syncing by generating a new secret key each time, as opposed to configuring this each time using the webUI. Is there something I may be missing in order to get that folder/subfolders contents to show up during sync when just using the sync.conf file from what you can see in my file? For reference, I installed Sync on linux and made sure to set all applicable folder permissions and enabled automatic startup + sync of current user folders. sync.conf
  2. Hi all, I received a raspberry pi for Christmas and I am trying to set it up as a home sync/backup server. I have successfully mounted an external hard drive to my Pi and can interface with it successfully, but Resilio Sync cannot access the hard drive. Question is: is this a Sync issue or a Linux/Rasbpian issue? How can I remedy this? Many thanks
  3. Hello! I really don't know whether I need to present myself because I found nothing about it. Anyway, It's been about one month since the problem I'm facing first occurred. To be specific, I tried two things: I started the Resilio sync client in daemon mode, then I monitored resource consumption and I noticed it occurred while it was adding event listeners to each file. Then, I decided to try updating the client and reinstalling (I just downloaded the archive from the site and re-extracted). By adding one folder at a time, I noticed that when I added a really big folder (in terms of number of files) the problem reoccurred. I hope to get some help and I'm ready to provide all kind of debug information. Thanks in advance, Eugenio.
  4. After restart my Raspberry Pi Zero W, Resilio can't start. I've got this error message: error msg It was working fine until restart (uptime about 12 days). Any advise what's wrong - please?
  5. I've installed Resilio Sync on Raspberry Pi and added CIFS shared folder from Apple Airport Extreme to sync. Sync working for few hours and then it stopped. log: 20170827 14:53:13.236] TF[303B] [0x6591a528][/home/xbian/FamilyLibrary/music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Boards Of Canada/The Campfire Headphase/14 Tears From The Compound Eye.m4a]: unloading torrent by timeout [20170827 14:53:15.247] TF[303B] [0x65913f38][/home/xbian/FamilyLibrary/music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Dan Barta/Theyories/11 Fool of me.m4a]: unloading torrent by timeout [20170827 14:53:24.300] TF[303B] [0x65903918][/home/xbian/FamilyLibrary/music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music/Alfred Schnittke/Concerti grossi 1 & 5, Quasi una sonata/10 Concerto 5_ IV.

  6. My Objective: Put a constantly updating file into the Resilio Sync folder. Problem: When I run my code, the updating file appears in the raspberry pi synced folder; however, it does not sync to my other computers unless the python code is no longer running. I've found that the following code syncs perfectly with Resilio: #Send IP Address Information to the Folder f = open("/home/pi/Desktop/folder/Data/ipAddress.txt","w+") f.write(str(ipPrint)) f.close() The files that don't sync are the ones that are appended ,"a+": for port in activeports: files[index] = open("/home/pi/Desktop/folder/Data/" + "20" + filedate.strftime('%y_%m_%d_') + str(devices[index]) + ".csv","a+") Do you guys have any idea on what's happening? Thanks in advance!
  7. I wanted to get Sync working on my Raspberry Pi, and used this guide to help me: I was able to get the web Gui to work so I could access the sync with Windows, but it wouldn't grant me access to any of the folders I wanted to sync. Using a different guide on this forum, I edited my config file to be this: { "listening_port" : 0, "storage_path" : "/home/pi/data/.syncsystem", "pid_file" : "/home/pi/data/.syncsystem/", "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "delete_folder_from_disk" : true, "folder_defaults.delete_to_trash" : true, "webui" : { "directory_root" : [ "/home/pi/share", "shares" ] "listen" : "", }, "vendor" : "PiDrive", "display_new_version": false } After a reload, the web gui was gone, and this showed up instead: I reinstalled the btsync service, deleted it (and installed again), rebooted several times, and tried to play around with the config, and I could never get back to the web gui that I had originally. It seems not even the Raspberry Pi itself can reach it, and I wonder if it's even on. I'm still fairly new to the Pi, if anybody have any suggestions to solve this, let me know.
  8. I've installed Sync on a fresh install of Raspbian Jessie Lite on a Raspberry Pi 2, and I can't get it to connect to other peers/computers that I'm running sync on. If I add folders they don't connect to the other peers and linking sync identities also doesn't work. I also get the error message saying "Cannot get the list of trackers" appearing at the bottom of the screen. The version of Sync is 2.5.2 and it was installed using the official linux packages via the method detailed here. I don't think the issue with my router as sync is working fine on multiple other PC's on the same LAN. I am able to access the web interface without any issues though. The only extra software on the Pi is samba. Does anyone have any thoughts on what the problem might be? it could be a linux configuration since I don't have much experience with it. I've attached a log file from sync below sync.log
  9. Hi, I recently set-up a Raspberry Pi to act as a content server for my Calibre Library. I was wondering if there was a way that I could synch and update the library from the master copy on my Windows PC over my local network to the copy stored on the USB flash drive that is attached to the Raspberry Pi. Any help is appreciated.
  10. hi Could you tell me if current ARM version for RPI 3 (running OSMC) still usages lots of CPU. I'm currently running some unsupported / wildcat version of Sync and I would like to upgrade to latest / supported version, but not if CPU usage still really high as I don't have cycles to spare on my little media centre. The version I'm currently using is 2.0.93 and I got it from . Cheers, Geoff.
  11. I have installed on my Raspberry Pi 2 Btsync version 2.0.93, it is set to automatically check for updates on the preferences panel, but as far as I can tell it never did update. Is there any automated process to update BtSync or do I need to remove it and install the latest version of Resilio Sync? Thanks
  12. Trying to get sync working on Raspberry Pi 3, running the latest Jessie update (Pixel?) I've gotten it all running and folders syncing, but it will only fill in part of the circle and then it stops syncing and displays the error "Don't have permissions to write to selected folder" History shows a lot of "Finished Syncing file [path/file]" then abruptly switches to "Failed to download [path/file] -WriteToDisk" Both the successfully written to directories and the failed are owned by Pi, and permissions are 777. Also, in Preferences, under Web UI is says "Connection settings overwritten by config" but there is no config file in /opt/resilio/bin, only LICENCE.TXT and a files called rslsync (Presumably the executable) Installed via the instructions here: I've no idea how it is launching (config or not, what user it is running under, etc) I should add, I am syncing two calibre libraries, one eBooks, one Audiobooks. The ebook lib has synced 2058 of 14,698 items (combined files and directories) and the Audiobook library has synced 543 or 980 items Help?
  13. 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", "password_hash" : "MY_HASH_HERE" }, "recv_buf_size" : 64, "send_buf_size" : 64, "max_file_size_for_versioning" : 250 } I've successfully synced a few folders, but now the process seems to die about midway through new folders. The only way to get it back is to reboot the Raspberry Pi because restarting the process asks for a Sync id again rather than using the already existing id. I've read in the forums that Sync has some issues with memory management. Does this mean Raspberry Pi devices should not be used? I thought NAS drives have low memory too, so how come those work? Any information would be helpful. My goal here was to back up the various directories in my Mac user directory to the Raspberry Pi. Thanks,
  14. 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 ? Ssl 14:56 0:03 /usr/bin/rslsync --config /etc/resilio-sync/config.json pi 1160 0.1 0.7 70872 6636 ? Ssl 14:56 0:02 /usr/bin/rslsync --config /home/pi/.config/resilio-sync/config.json I have a resilio-sync direction in /etc/ with the following files in it: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 201 Sep 29 08:55 config.json -rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 496 Sep 29 08:54 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 222 Sep 29 08:54 user_config.json and I have a launch script in in /etc/init.d/. These should all be vanilla from the install instructions but I can't figure out why two instance are launching? the config.json looks like this: { "storage_path" : "/var/lib/resilio-sync/", "pid_file" : "/var/run/resilio-sync/", "agree_to_EULA": "yes", "webui" : { "listen" : "" } } And the user_config.json looks like this: { "storage_path" : "{HOME}/.config/resilio-sync/storage", "pid_file" : "{HOME}/.config/resilio-sync/", "agree_to_EULA": "yes", "webui" : { "listen" : "" } } I'm also curious how to change the user that is used to launch the service at boot. I'd prefer the user "pi" over the user "rslsync" since it will be easier to manage the permissions.
  15. Hi How might one reduce to amount of logging which accumulates in day-to-day operation of my Pi? My SD card isn't very large, and I'm concerned that the constant activity generated by Sync might consume more that its fair share of storage. I assume thing like log TTL or other variables related to the retention of log files / journals have a variable somewhere. Where would I find this variable in Debian / OSMC? These more granular variables don't seem to appear in the web GUI. Cheers, Geoff.
  16. Hello! I've tried to update from bittorrent sync to resilio sync on my Raspberry Pi today. When I try to install it (using the official instructions, it does not launch, providing the following error: pi@raspberrypi:~ $ /usr/bin/rslsync Illegal instruction I've tried both arch=armhf and default packages. Is it possible to launch the resilio sync on Raspberry Pi?
  17. I am new to Raspberry Pi and Linux. Currently run Sync on Macs. I am trying to run btsync on a Raspberry Pi 3 using the btsync install from the official repository. I am able to get it installed using apt-get. But after I am having no luck getting the service started. Please help me with what to do after it is installed. I tried to run the executable btsync in in /usr/bin subfolder but it does not start and I can't connect to it on port 8888. That port does not show as open in netstat. The configuration screen never comes up. When I run it in terminal it just goes back to a command prompt. How do I start it up properly and what is the best way to make its start on boot. Thanks in advance for help.
  18. A lot of people on this forum have a Raspberry Pi using BitTorrent Sync. Over the last couple weeks, since the original blog post of Sync + WD + Raspberry Pi, I have been working on a script for everybody to use to install, update, backup and remove BitTorrent Sync on their Raspberry Pi easily without worrying how to actually do that. And now I am ready to let you guys know about it. It does exactly what you would think it does: Install, update, backup and remove an installation of BitTorrent Sync using that script. Not more, not less. You can check it out on my GitHub page here: Raspberry Pi + Sync Script All the instructions and what to do is described there. Hope this will help people that are just starting to use BitTorrent Sync on their Raspberry Pi's.
  19. I installed Sync by following the instructions on your guide "Installing Sync on Linux". After installation, btsync failed to start. After some digging I found it the cause: btsync was compiled against glibc 2.16: /usr/bin/btsync: /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ version `GLIBC_2.16' not found (required by /usr/bin/btsync) My system: Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2 Debian GNU/Linux 7.11 (wheezy) Linux 4.1.19+ armv6l After manually installing the arm-version (not armhf), it worked. I had to edit /etc/init.d/btsync since the parameters where different.
  20. I have BitTorrent Sync 2.3 installed a Raspberry Pi Model A, btsync crashes every day or so. I only recently upgraded from v1.4(ish) and everything worked fine with the old version but the new version will not run for longer than about a day. In checking the log file I have found that the problems seem to start with this: [20160320 19:12:31.024] SyncSocket[0xb2dfdaf8]: an error has occurred - code: 110, message: "offline (timed out)" [20160320 19:12:31.029] PD[8E0D] [0E4A]: failed to open TCP tunnel - endpoint:, status: "offline (timed out)", enc: SRP, socket: 0xac562620, tunnels: 0 The log file shows a series of these and then it finally gives up the ghost a while (a few hours) later. I found the following post which mentions graceful/ungraceful shutdowns, checking the end of the log files shows that it is not a graceful shutdown. I'd appreciate some advice on how to get this up and running again.
  21. Hi all I have been using btsync on my raspberry pi for a while now and have found it to run very well. Lately I changed over to the official repo for the deb packages and at the same time updated btsync and my system. Now I can no longer access the webui and I also when I try to run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure btsync" it just thinks for about 10 seconds then shows a new line in the prompt. Btsync is still running when i check with systemctl and it is syncing with my desktop successfully however I would like to be able to run the configuration and access the webui. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I was pleased to see the official Linux packages release last week, but on Debian Jessie (on a Raspberry Pi), the CPU usage is up above 100% and often 150%. It's unusable. Has anyone else seen similar or knows a way around it, or do we have to wait for the Sync team to do a fix? Thanks
  23. Hi, I have a setup with BTSync on a laptop, a pc, and a Raspberry Pi to act as a server. I recently noticed it stopped working (not sure why - I actually think it might have just been on pause accidentally, it was pretty late...) Anyway, I had set this up before I had Pro and you could easily link devices under one identity. So I used it as an opportunity to do just that, and the sync between the pc and laptop works just fine. However, I can't get my Raspberry Pi to link. If I unlink the device over the WebGUI, I get the normal prompt to create an identity, but no option to link an identity from another device. Obviously I want to do that, so I can use the Pro version on the Pi as well. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
  24. I have a raspberry pi where I'm attempting to install btsync using the official deb package from here. I downloaded the deb using wget. Ran as sudo dpkg -i appears to install but the btsync service start silently fails. When I run 'service btsync status' I get 'btsync for USER pi: not running'. When I try and start it via command line with either 'service btsync start' or 'sudo service btsync start' it tries to start but silently fails. Status once again reveals 'btsync for USER pi: not running'. Any ideas of what could be going wrong here?
  25. Hey, I'm running BTSync 2.0.105 on a Raspberry Pi 2 and successfully synced 1,8TB and more than 160.000 files from a Drobo 5N to this machine via a read only share. I did the initial sync via LAN, which took about a week. The two devices are now connected via the internet. I recently had to exchange the hard drive of the Pi. I used RSync to copy the data from the old drive and readded the same share using the path to the new hard drive. Unfortunately the reindexing seems to be quite slow. I roughly estimated it will take about a week to reindex and wonder if this is normal, even if there is no actual file transfer? I wish there was a feature to move folders of shares within BTSync. Thanks!
