  1. Its been a while since I have posted because Resilio has been working so well for me. So, we just got two identical Android phones; one is about two weeks older than the other. Both are LG Xpower3 phones. A bit of background first: I have a few FreeBSD servers all running full sync for multiple folders we will call A to G. Rock solid. Also have one Ubuntu laptop running full sync to two of those folders A and B. Also rock solid. Two weeks ago I added Sync to a brand shiny new LG Xpower3 phone, and added A and B, but in "Selective sync"mode. Also rock solid. Yesterday we got a second brand new LG Xpower3 phone. I can add A in "selective sync" with no issues, and it seems to be perfectly fine. When I add B on this second phone, after a couple minutes the app stops responding and you can feel the back of the phone heat up. The syncing process says it synced, but the files in there are greyed out, and even if I touch them to sync nothing happens. If I force stop the app and restart I get the same result. I have tried everything I can think of including removing and re-adding B, clearing cache, uninstalling and reinstalling (and I did that also trying to deleted those two sync folders created in Downloads to purge any hidden data). Nothing I try matters. A works fine, B just locks up the app and heats up the phone. If I add A and nothing else, Sync seems fine for as long as I let it remain. If I add B by itself the app freezes. Note I even currently have no files in B, I removed them all just to see, and I let all the other devices sit for 30 minutes (it was supper time) before I tried adding B on this second phone. The only other thing I noticed is when I touch the sync folder inside sync it takes a long long time to show the contents, whether it be nothing or files. I assume all phone versions are correct, but have not checked yet. And all machines, except one FreeBSD server, sits on the same LAN (L2 broadcast domain). And my two weeks old LG phone works perfectly fine on wifi networks outside my home network, as well as the mobile data network. I'm stumped, any thoughts?
  2. Hey, I´m new with freebsd and I need some help. Could someone help me to install resilio sync with freebsd 11.0? I have downloaded the x64 tar.gz from and decompresserd it. What I have to do now? sorry for this noob question, Im used to install apps from pkg or ports.
  3. So I mentioned this on the old forum but I'll mention it again, plus a couple other items I am now doing. I have a few NAS type servers (most are off site) build with FreeBSD, an awesome OS I might add, check it out! I have security cameras that send pictures to a folder on the NAS. BTsync simply syncs to each server, and those sync to our cell phones. If the alarm company calls we have pictures on our phones. Also in the event the NAS was found and stolen or destroyed, copies of the bad guys are already off site. Our library of family moments (pictures and videos) are replicated to the off site servers. Those servers use Minidlna to stream the libraries to smart TVs. So our parents who live in other parts of the world can enjoy our pictures and videos simply using the TV remote control. Side benefit of using BTsync - since my NAS is replicated to off-site servers if my home server were to suffer a catastrophic failure or be destroyed in fire for example I have multiple copies already off-site that I can use. (Note since i use read/write mode everywhere for various reasons, I also use external drives to make rotating copies off-site, just in case somehow a "rm -r *" type boo boo is done.) (Shameless promotion - I realize there are a lot of folks here that use various OSs, but if you are in the mood to try something truly refreshing, rock solid architecture, etc you should give FreeBSD a try. Its a direct descendant of the BSD type UNIX and if you have a open mind I believe you won't be disappointed.) Edit 2018-07-20 - I realize now I failed to mention the Synth stuff. Synth is a program that is used to compile/build other programs for FreeBSD. Some of my other machines are older so less powerful CPUs. So what I do is I use Synth with profiles on the more powerful machine to build the programs. But how does it know what to build? Easy, thanks to Bittorrent Sync (now Resilio) a copy of the target machine files is on the builder machine. Here is the beauty part: lets say you have 50 identical target machines. Sync up the require folders, let Synth do its thing and after completion go to each traget machine and have its local Synth or PKG do the upgrade. Slick!!
  4. Not sure if others have the same problem, but my FreeBSD Sync installation always takes 100% CPU load after it's running for a while. The web UI can't be loaded at all. I've already upgraded Sync to 2.3.8 In top it shows PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU COMMAND 79970 btsync 7 22 0 1065M 809M umtxn 3 553:54 100.00% btsync umtxn means Kernel Lock.

In the log, there're may SyncSocket errors. For example: [20160710 13:12:53.238] SyncSocket[0x0000000827bf4480]: an error has occurred - code: 61, message: "Connection refused" ZFS has been enabled in my Freebsd installation. Around 40 folders have been shared.
  5. No matter how many times I set lan_encrypt_data to false on the 2.3.1 64-bit FreeBSD release, it reverts to true when I restart btsync. I've waited much longer than config_save_interval but the behavior remains the same.
  6. For the first time since I'm using the program, btsync 1.3.106 is crashing due to segmentation fault on my FreeBSD 8.4 server: $ gdbGNU gdb 6.1.1 [FreeBSD]Copyright 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.GDB is free software, covered by the GNU General Public License, and you arewelcome to change it and/or distribute copies of it under certain conditions.Type "show copying" to see the conditions.There is absolutely no warranty for GDB.

  7. I had BT Sync running great on my FreeBSD server for a while. Something choked it up at some point and it wasn't syncing anything. So I killed the process. Ever since, if I try to restart it, it claims it has, but then there is no sign of it when i run ps. /usr/local/sbin/btsync --config /etc/btsync.conf BitTorrent Sync forked to background. pid = 12814 ps auwx | grep sync root 12871 0.0 0.0 3496 1016 7 S+ 5:15PM 0:00.00 grep sync ps auwx | grep 12814 root 12888 0.0 0.0 3496 1016 7 S+ 5:16PM 0:00.00 grep 12814 I tried clearing out /var/run/btsync of any pid files, but it didn't help. This isn't a box I can restart really. Any suggestions?
  8. First off, I tried to search for my topic by simply searching 'BSD' in the forum first and I got: "The following search terms are not allowed and were removed from your query: bsd" Weird. I installed btsync on my FreeBSD server and it all seemed to be working well at first glance. But it seems that any file or folder originally created within a sync folder *on* the FreeBSD server does not get synced to the other peers. If the other peers (Windows box, and Android phone) create files in the synced folder on their end, it replicates to the FreeBSD (and between the other peers) just fine. Why is it only going one-way seemingly?
  9. Hi I have 2 storage, 80 TB (24 HDD) for each machine. OS Freebsd 9.2. Every machine connect via 2x10Gb\s interfaces to storage switch (Cisco 5548UP), on every machine and on every switch I enabled jumbo frames (MTU 9000). Every machine can read/write files from ZFS pool with speed above 400-600 MB/s simultaneously. I set BTSync: Use relay server when required = False Use tracker server = False Search LAN = True Search DHT network = False Store deleted files in SyncArchive = True Use predefined hosts = True But max transfer speed which i see was 16MB/s. What I do wrong, how I can increase transfer speed? Thank you in advance Aleksandr
  10. All, I have installed btsync on my freenas box and it's running in daemon mode: ./btsync & I created a read-only secret on my windows 7 machine and added it to the freenas's btsync gui. THe sync begins and syncs up to exactly 4.0 GB (as reported by the windows upload status field, and the freenas dowload status field). The sync stops there. This is short of the total sync folder size of 6.9 GB. Any ideas? Additional note: In an effort to provied due diligence to my post, I enabled debugging in the windows side. This did not generat a sync.log the the application folder. It also doesn't appear that there is an option to turn on debugging on the freenas side. Help would be appreciated. V/R, Tim
