Hi people I've been seeing that running the latest provided linux binary (x86_64 and i386) cause a dramatic DNS slowdown and make the system(13.04 and 13.10) unusable, ala http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/20498-causing-dns-timeouts/. Stopping the service immediately cures the problems. Does anyone have any suggestions for the problem and can changing settings (relay server, DHT, Tracker server) make a difference to this? I know I might be repeating a post or two but can't seem to search the forum to see if others have similar problems and solutions as DNS is only 3 letters long and the forum rejects the search. Thanks Andy
I am currently running Btsync version 1.2.73 on Linux x64 and am experiencing problems when switching between network profiles. I commonly switch between two different network profiles, one for my home network and one for the network at my University. Each network uses different DNS Servers. When I leave the bittorrentsync client running on my laptop and switch from my "home" network profile to my "University" network profile, the bittorrentsync client is unable to reestablish a connection to the devices it was connected with on my "home" network. Upon analysis with Wireshark, I noticed that outbound DNS requests to the btsync traker servers were being sent to the old DNS Server that I use on my "home" network instead of to the new DNS Servers provided by the "University" Network. This means that I have to restart btsync everytime I switch between the two networks because it seems not recognize the updated DNS Servers. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
I didn't see anyone else mention this but I thought it would be interested to create a distributed web with BitTorrent Sync. We have the IP addresses with Sync's Read-only Secret. So, all we would need would be a DNS (no need for .com/.org/etc or www or http) service that could be hosted with Git also using BT Sync to distribute the files. We would also need a browser that could serf "Sync Web." Preferably a browser that could serf both the old school web and the new "Sync Web." The browser would give the option to serf Sync instead of the old web and when you leave a web site it could keep the files on your computer for however long you would like before it would delete them (temp files). A distributed web would also make it possible for you to locally host your files when using it's service. So, if I want a service like EverNote I could have all my text files on my local machine (zipped, of course) with an option of using an ftp to get my files. Even for video sharing it would be great. You could have a separate secret key for each video. Instead of doing something like youtube. You might still want a central site like youtube to make sure they don't have malicious files attached - but the videos themselves would be set free. Has anyone thought of this before? I would love something like this. Then the government couldn't black list sites anymore (granted it hasn't ever been a problem for me but I still don't like the idea that some central authority could make it so I couldn't visit a website). Even the browser hosting the Sync sites wouldn't be able to stop you if you put in a sync file directly.
