  1. I am trying to install the latest version of btsyc on a CentOS 6.5 headless server. I cannot reach the WebUI. I configured the webui on port 65000. This is confirmed by the command line reply when I start the service: The service itself is configured to run on port 8888. When I run `lsof -Pnl +M -i4`, I get the following output: btsync 25687 500 9u IPv4 536416051 0t0 TCP *:8888 (LISTEN) btsync 25687 500 10u IPv4 536416052 0t0 UDP *:8888 btsync 25687 500 13u IPv4 536416060 0t0 UDP *:3838 Nothing else seems to be listening on 65000. I tried `netstat -tulpn` as well and the results are the same. I added a rule to iptables and `Iptables -L` returns (among others): But to make sure I tried to run it while the iptables service was completely switched off, and I still could not get any different results. The logfile sows the following: I tried to run webui on a different port, the result is the same. I also tried to bind the webui on my server's IP address instead of, same result. Any ideas? [Update] So I started this whole process again with a default config and on port 8888 and now it worked. As a recommendation for people in the future who have such an issue, try to use this command here: curl -k -v to see if the server is running from the server's command line. It should show a quite long bunch of HTML if the server is running properly. If that works, try to amend the config file from there on
  2. Hi BTSync community! The subject explains the issue, let me give some background: sudo systemctl status btsync yields active (running) so this seems to indicate that it is running properly. I previously had set it up with the unofficial repository, but since that is way out of date, at one point in the past I had installed it manually. I could always access the webgui this way. Upon finding out there was the official repository, I installed the official repository on my 14.04 ubuntu server and it synced fine, but I could not access the webgui... I decided I would wait to try again after a fresh install of the now released 16.04 (thought maybe the issue was not uninstalling previous repository properly). I still am seeing the same issue with regards to accessing the webgui. it returns: "site can't be reached" and lower "site refused to connect" in chrome when trying to access 8888. I am not a linux power user by any means, but am generally able to work my way around the terminal reasonably well... point is, don't assume something obvious that should be done has already been done... It may not be obvious to me! Is there something else I have to do to get the webgui working when using the official repository? What troubleshooting should I do next? Thanks for the help in advance!
  3. I use Sync 2.0 on my laptop. I want to run a headless Sync 2.0 server instance on my ubuntu vserver. Therefore I created a configuration file for my btsync instance in /etc/btsync/instance.conf. In instance.conf I can define all the shared_folders. To sync them with my laptop I have to set a secret for each directory to sync. How can I find out the secret key for this configuration parameter in the Sync 2.0 App for Mac? I can only get a weblink or an QR-Code. That does not work as a secret parameter. Any tipps?
  4. Question guys, I have the following config.json for my two nodes. I am wondering if I am still sending any data over the internet or would all my traffic stay within my local lan ? From what I understand using the known_hosts directive, along with search_lan, I am not going to be using any public trackers. Is this correct?

  5. Hello, what should I install to run BitTorrent Sync on Headless (command line only, no GUI) Debian (Wheezy)? I am a little bit confused from the download selections in the download page. I have personal home PC running debian and want to have there Sync. It must work on command line only. Is there some documentation how to control Sync from command line? Thanks. urza
