  1. Resilio Sync has disappeared from the FreeNAS Plugins Collection. Curiously, while Resilio Sync can still be compiled from a FreeBSD port, due to licensing restrictions, a pre-built binary package of the port is no longer available, so pkg install rslsync returns nothing from the FreeBSD package mirrors.This scripted installation of Resilio Sync will create a jail, install the latest version of Resilio Sync (x64) for FreeBSD from, and store its configuration and client backup data outside the jail.Scripted installation instructions are at
  2. Resilio Sync "pro" (pro 5 user license) I've got a sync source on my FreeNAS Resilio Sync "master" (using the plugin jail)... Every single time I setup a new "destination" to sync from my master source - I get this (see screenshot). It's not a show stopper - but it's annoying, I can "ignore" sure - but I'd like to get rid of it permanently. I cannot find that file in the Resilio Sync "jail" running on my FreeNAS server... When I originally would have copied that file there - it was a mistake - it's a 20+ GB OVA of a Windows 7 VM (VirtualBox), and I would have realised this, at the time, and removed it, and this would have been in 2018.. But something thinks it's still there. How do I tell it that file's no longer there and to stop Resilio Sync blabbering on about it? Any ideas?

  4. Hi, I have created a Sync v2.3.8 jail on my FreeNAS v9.10 box. Problem is, that the WebUI is not reachable. I can ping the jail's IP(v4) (locally fix, outside of my DHCP range), but no one is listening on port 8888. A btsync process is running in the jail listening on 49692/udp (if I get the BSD netstat -4 -l right...) but no one on 8888. With sockstats -l -4 I see the btsync PID listening on 49692 and 12349 on the external IP and on 8888 only for I guess, I have to configure sync to listen on the external interface in addition, or? Question would be where/how? I found /.sync/settings.dat in the jails root, however vi throws an error "Conversion error on line 1 / Error: unable to retrieve line 1", whereas I can cat/less the file - including some broken(??) characters at the end of the first line at 'peer_id20:' If the plugin/jail is corrupted, I would wonder since I had assumed that they are checksumed in the FreeNAS repo? Cheers and thanks for ideas, Thomas
  5. I've installed BT Sync 2.0.124 using the FreeNAS plugin. I can sync a directory using the manual link between the webgui and my Win7 desktop (2.0.128) on the local LAN, but only if I don't require Peer Approval. When requiring Peer Approval, it just continues to say Pending Approval on the desktop client and no notification comes up on the FreeNAS webgui to approve. I do want this service since I also sync with users outside the LAN and connect via email. Is there any documentation of how the Approval process works at a lower level so I can troubleshoot? It seems the tracking and listening ports are working properly since the one directory is sync'ing fine, but the Approval process doesn't seem to follow the same guidelines. Thanks. ========================================== Edited to add: Nevermind. I edited /etc/group in the btsync jail and added btsync to the www group. Restarted the jail and the approval request showed up immediately. The FreeNAS plugin has not been the easiest to navigate. www:*:80:btsync
  6. Hello, I am new to the forum. I have been running BTSync for around 4 months on my FreeNas box. Yesterday I noticed there was an update available for the Plugin. I went ahead and updated and afterwards i logged into the webgui. I was prompted with the same welcome wizard you get when installing BTSync on a client machine. At the end of the wizard it asks you if you want to create new 2.0 links or you already have one. I chose I already had one but after selecting that option i relies i didn't see the option i wanted. i hit the back or close button and my screen turned to a gray background with a thin line in the shape of a box. I can't seem to get out of this. I have rebooted my NAS box and reset the plugin service. I have tried getting the to webgui page though different browsers and even different pc's. still no change. My links still work but I am unable to add new or do any administration over them. I would rather not have to uninstall/re-install and recreate my links. Any suggestions would greatly appreciated!

  7. Hi everyone, Has anyone successfully set up two FreeNAS devices to sync between each other?? I've tried searching for this topic, but didn't find helpful posts. Both of my FreeNAS devices have 2.0.1 installed, and are functioning. However, when I try to add the shared folder to the 2nd device, it gives an error of "Cannot identify the destination folder". How do I fix this?? Thanks!
  8. I've been using BTSync for a while on my FreeNAS, Macbook, and 2 Windows PC's, and the other day I tried to find an excel file that I'd created, but it was gone. It was in a folder that is synced between all my devices, I created it a few months ago, so a few things could have happened or contributed. - I swapped my old Windows laptop for a new Macbook - I swapped out the 2 HDD's on my NAS, but soon after, had to swap them back to the original disks. - My NAS had been performing system wide ZFS snapshots, but 90% of the space had been taken up, so I had to delete them - (I've since setup selective backups, but not before the file went missing) - Updated BTSync to 1.4 from 1.3 on all my devices (1.4.103 on my Macbook) - The BTSync service had stopped on my NAS for a while (I don't know how long for) so my work PC wasn't being synced for a bit (I hadn't made any changes to the folder in that time though) I'm not sure what's happened, or how or when, & I can't remember if I deleted it; I don't think I would have, but there's always that possibility; & everything else seems to be intact. What's strange is, I can't find any trace of it with any file recovery tools. The only thing I have is a recent file entry in Excel on my old Windows laptop. I've seen traces of really old files, but not this one that I'm looking for. It's not in the folder's sync archive either. It's not the most important file in the world, but I'm wondering why there is no evidence of it anywhere, and if BTSync has anything to do with why it can't be found. I'd also like to know if there's some sort of incompatibility with data recovery, before anything more valuable potentially goes missing.
  9. Hello, A newbie question. I have Sync on a 1 Windows 7 PC, 1 Windows Server on one site and on 1 FreeNAS server and 1 Windows 8.1. on another site. All machines are on 1.3.109 (automatic update) except the FreeNAS: 1.3.9x (it pretends it's the latest version) 3 days ago, Sync the FreeNAS sever decided that it was not in Sync anymore.And decided to redowload everything it already has. There is about 400GB remaining, so probably 5 wks saturating the pipes. And the thing I need it to sync does not sync. This was triggered by adding a new shared folder in FreeNAS btsync jail. My question is: Is there a safe way to force Sync to reindex to not dowload what it had already? Thanks, Pierre
  10. hi there I recently setup btsync on a freeNAS box. It works great. I made a mistakes though, and I can't remember what I set as the Web GUI password to. I'd prefer not to have to 'start over'. Is there a way to reset that password? I was reading the documentation and it looks like you can put the password in the config file and I found the config file, but it doesn't have a password set in it. JAIL_ROOT./usr/pbi/btsync-amd64/etc/btsync.conf I also found a settings.dat file, which appears to have a hashed version of the password, but it appears to be a binary file and I'm not a little afraid to try to edit it. JAIL_ROOT./var/db/btsync/settings.dat Is there something I can do, maybe from the command line? Thanks.
  11. I just setup btsync 1.2.72 on my freenas 9.2.1 box at home. i also setup the client at my computer at work. I chose a folder with all of my documents as the folder i want to sync. will btsync sync existing files or will it sync only what i add to the synced folder from now on? and if it will only sync from now on, how can i get it to sync what i have on my work computer?
  12. 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
  13. I have 2 Macs in my house that need a good backup strategy. Time Machine is ok but after a while it always stops working for one reason or another and I have to erase the Time Machine drives and start over. Lame. Plus I've heard problems persists with Time Machine on a NAS drive. I'm thinking about building a FreeNAS system, mainly for the wonderful ZFS snapshot feature. I'll have BTSync installed on the FreeNAS, as well as on the Macs of course. I'll have both Mac home folders synced to folders on the FreeNAS ZFS filesystem. (Also, i'll be sharing some larger media files from the FreeNAS back to the Macs over AFP that wont be part of the BTSync). So, the FreeNAS will have a constant 1:1 backup of all my files on the Macs, plus a way of rolling back to earlier / deleted files via ZFS snapshots. This sounds like a great setup. Maybe too good to be true? Are they any pitfalls I might run into? Also, does ZFS play nicely with BTSync and vice versa? I've seen a thread about how Zevo, the Mac version of ZFS, causes Mac BTSync to hang. I'm wondering if this is mac specific, or if the same issue exists on the FreeNAS version of BTSync. Advice? Thoughts?
