Hi! iPad using BitTorrent Sync version 2.3.5 (254) client, my home network has 2 Raspberry Pi running BitTorrent Sync v2.3.3 (296). I was visiting our summer cabin this last weekend and used iPhone to create a hotspot for our iPad for connection via 3g. So after starting up the BitTorrent Sync app on the iPad, the servers on my home network tried to connect to 172.20.10.x, the same IP-address iPhone gave to the iPad. By looking in the Sync logs you see peer information for an external ip and a local ip (172.20.10.x). Then the server tries to ping 172.20.10.x, of course with no result (timed out). Questions: 1) is this a bug in the client app for iPad/iPhone? 2) Are my BitTorrent servers not really understanding the protocol from the iPad client app? 3) Is this an aggressive peer discovery protocol running amok? Anyhow, thanks for a great product! Regards
Hi, I have a network of ~30 Windows 8 computers that I need synced. I also have a single offsite computer that is also synced. The 30 computers connect over WiFi to a single WiFi LTE hotspot that only has about 1 GB a month. The amount of new data on these 30 computers combined is less than 1GB, however, I ran a test with three machines and even with them just sitting there overnight (no new files, no new computers added to the network) I used up about 30MB of data. I opened a network monitor on one of the machines and it says that BTSync is nearly always sending and receiving data. It's a small amount but it seems to add up. Does anyone know why so much data is being sent even when no files are being added? Is there a way to stop this? I understand something needs to be sent so that the computers can stay in sync but 30MB over ~10 hours seems like a lot! Thanks a ton! ~Ian
I tried it several times now with different versions (since several months): I would like to sync my notebook to remote BTSync instances via the portable hotspot of an Android phone. This simply does not work. BTSync on the notebook doesn't even see the other nodes/devices. Any ideas?
