  1. I installed the same version of resilio-sync on two fedora workstations following this page: When I connect these two computers on a standard directory, they are not connected to each others "no peer online -- 0 of 0". In fact I can see a warning message in the Web UI configuration page : "Connection settings overwritten by config". I don't know what this message means. My configuration file loaded by the rslsync is located in ~/.config/resilio-sync/config.json and its content looks l
  2. Hello! I've been running Resilio Sync for a while and am quite happy with it. I use a raspberry pi as my "server node". Today, I encountered the issue that I was out of disk space and discovered that the .config folder is a whopping 8.9GB large. I would either need a way to identify files that can safely be deleted from that folder, or a way to move the folder to the usb drive I use to store the sync folders. Can someone help me out?
  3. I prefer to use non-webUI version of Sync and use the config file to setup shared folders and other parameters. Is it possible to configure "Power User Preferences" like Peer expiration, Journaling, File System Notifications, etc. through the config?
  4. I cant get sync to work with "Camera Backup" folders. I want to sync an "Camera Backup" from an Android device to an Raspberrypi running raspbian using an config file. Syncing the "Camera Backup" to an desktop pc with windows and without config-file works perfectly fine, also other "normal" folders on the raspberrypi are beeing synced perfectly even with the said Android device. Here is my config, with changed values for posting: { "device_name": "HOSTNAME", "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 8000, "upload_limit" : 500, "shared_fol
  5. Hello. I have been familiar with torrent for a long time, but recently trying to migrate to resilio (due to my frustration with dropbox and the limitations). I have a Laptop (running Arch Linux) with all my data. I have set up a config file for a couple of my folders. I have posted my code below, or it's in a pastebin here. I want to sync my Music folder to my android phone. (Samsung Galaxy S7) I installed the Sync app, and entered the "secret" of the Music folder as a key in my phone, and directed it into an empty folder called Music in my sd card. After this, my phone says it sees
  6. Is there a way to disable the Windows popup notifications when using the config file? I know there is a way without the config file going to general settings and unchecking “Show Notifications” – but when you use the config file that options disappears.
  7. Hey guys, for some reason, I'm trying to start Sync in configuration mode (Win64), using this config: { "storage_path" : "./sync", "device_name": "my-device", "agree_to_EULA" : "yes", "check_for_updates" : false, "use_gui": true, "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "rate_limit_local_peers": false, "lan_encrypt_data": false, "sync_max_time_diff": 172800, "peer_expiration_days": 3, "folder_defaults.use_relay": true, "folder_defaults.use_tracker": true, "folder_defaults.use_lan_broadcast": true, "syn
  8. Hi, I know " btsync --dump - shows -config " this create a configuration file template . it is possible to obtain the current settings to a file? I need export the actual config in a file. Thanks!!
  9. I'm trying to configure on freeBSD. but I can't access the webUI. Anything I'm missing? I've set up the config file by going "./rslsync --dump-sample-config > sync.conf," making my desired edits, then restarting rslsync by going "killall rslsync" and then "./rslsync" what's the problem?
  10. Hello, I would like to setup a script on Linux to install Sync and automatically configure with my pro account and with a specified configuration of the folders to be synced. Is this possible?
  11. Hi, Over the last month, I've had a lot of trouble with BTSync and had to reinstall several times. Each time I've done this, I have lost all the config options (mainly the shares). I'm now on the official debian version, but am confused which config files I should back-up. I want to get to the stage where I can install BTSync on a freshly formatted device, restore a config, and all the old settings and shares are there and working. Can anyone advise which folders and files are essential to be backed-up to make this happen? Thanks Will
  12. I'm a linux newbie, so still fumbling my way forward at this stage. I've installed lubuntu onto an old 32-bit laptop & am now looking at installation & configuration. There appears to be two methods to install. Either find the appropriate package to download & install, such as.. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tuxpoldo/btsync sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install btsync or, to simply download & unpack, such as... tar xzpf btsync_glibc23_x64.tar.gz Are there pros vs. cons of either approach ? (I followed the latter as I couldn't get the package method
  13. Hi all, I am planing to use BTSync in an environemnt in the field. We are talking about one machine running as "server" (or data buffer) and about 15 laptops that are all in principle in the same LAN segment. However, since this realy is about being in the field, the connection may be LAN or WiFi and does not have to be stable. This is so since we are a catastrophe releif organisation - so nothing can be considered stable and working all the time. BTSync is perfect for this because we can use 2 or more laptops in a splitt off situation and data still will be synced allthoug there is no serve
  14. hi, I'm using bittorrent sync, but I have a "problem". I run bittorrent sync without the configuration file (./btsync --nodaemon --webui.listen When I make changes in the config from the UI and I run (./ btsync --nodaemon --config /btsync/config.json) the changes not persists in the DB file. why is this happening? thanks!!
  15. Hi, I've been using BtSync for a while, long before official Synology packages. When upgrading to 2.0, things went funny and I decided to delete and re-create the share, from scratch. No problem on Android and Windows. Now, how do I add a share to the ARM version ? Please note that : - I only have SSH access to this NAS. It's behind a router at the other side of the country, so I can't access to the HTTP WebUI. - I used to edit the config file in vi, and just copy-paste the secret. - Now in 2.0, the "get secret" option disappeared. I can just get a url. - I c
  16. In the config file it is possible to specify the port btsync listens on. It is also possible to specify the IP and port for the web UI. However, I have failed to find a way to specify which IP btsync listens on. So when running v2.0.120 on linux, if multiple IP addresses are available, how do I configure btsync to use one IP instead of the another? Thanks.
  17. 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:
  18. 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
  19. Hi. I'm trying to use BitTorrent sync with the --config option. I have a Read Only key and the initial sync works fine, but if i for example change something in my read only folder, nothing will be synced. If i use the gui it starts working when i check the "Overwrite any changed files". So, my question is, what is the equivalent when using a config file? This is my folder settings atm, but i can't seem to find the required key: { "secret" : "secret","dir" : "path","use_relay_server" : true,"use_tracker" : true,"use_dht" : false,"search_lan" : false,"use_sync_trash" : false }
  20. Hi, Just have some questions about approved peers so I understand how it works. It's a unit based setting right? I mean if I have 5 units I need to enable the setting on all devices to make sure no content is being shared to anyone else? Can these approved peers be specified in the config file using the username or device name? Thanks!
  21. I'm trying to get BT running on a server where I've previously had it working. It got rebooted, but when I launch btsync again it doesn't start syncing. I point my browser to port 8888 to manage the synced folders, but BT won't accept my login information. I'm using my server login and I've even tried 'root' and the root password, but it doesn't work. So, I used the --dump-sample-config option to create a config file sync.conf with the 'login' and 'password' files commented it out, and then launched btsync with $ ./btsync --config sync.conf I even cleared the storage directory, and my
  22. Hi, I've just installed the most recent bittorrent sync server version (using the ubuntu package btsync). A default config file was created in /etc/btsync. The web UI is running and started via upstart as root process. The --config parameter of the btsync process is directing to the /etc/btsync config file. However, none of the setting changes, applied in the web UI, are reflected in the /etc/btsync config file. Where is the web UI storing all the config data e.g. keys, shared folders, advanced settings like disabling LAN lookup? Thanks for any hints, Best Numa P.S.: Bittorrent Sync
  23. The current use case of btsync for linux users is the following: They are unaware of the difficulties of the advanced configuration so the start the easy way and they configure everything in the Web UI. Later on they realize they need to make an advanced configuration. This is when they realize that all their previous work was in vein because they need to run --Dump-Sample-Config and do every configuration all over again manually in the config file. Their previous settings will be lost. This is not even documented. This is a very cumbersome procedure and not like any other linux daemon that us
  24. Hi there, I just got an issue while trying to sync folders. Already read some thread as my one. FreeBSD 10: download tar from btsync website, and run it ./btsync => got an backgroud run localhost:8888 => share folder IPad: add folder with pasting secret, and right after now on PC there were an issue Q1: Where can I get config files?

  25. Greetings, I appologize if this has been asked before; I didn't find anything. I am trying to find specific documentation on the settings generated by the btsync --dump-sample-configcommand in linux. I want to understanding these various settings out of curiousity, and I am also trying to make sure of something else: <stupid questions> How can I be sure btsync is set up properly to transfer using the local network directly when possible instead of over the internet? (I still want it to transfer over the internet, just the local network should take priorety.) Also, will this loc
