  1. Here's a batch of screenshots I took from my phone using a network utility app while connected to the OpenVPN server I have set up on my network. Everything in these screenshots points to the fact that the phone can see/ping one of my LAN peers running Sync on port 33545 (, it can even make a direct connection on the Sync listening port!... green lights across the board... but when I open the Sync app with a connected folder with all default options except "Use relay server", none of the 8+ LAN clients on the subnet will connect to the phone. Is there something specific to OpenVPN settings that will allow the LAN clients speak to the VPN clients without having to go through a relay server? LAN: VPN: I have client-to-client enabled on the VPN... the subnet is being pushed to the VPN clients as a route... have it using the same DNS/DNS Resolver the LAN is using (can use the local DNS names to get to things, etc.)
  2. Hallo, today I noticed a (for me) very dangerous problem with sync. If you use BitTorrent Sync through a fresh OpenVPN connection, the peer will be discovered through a relay server instead of the broadcast through TUN! Let me explain my situation: I am a student and my student housing is behind a very restrictive firewall that blocks my IP in seconds when I start using peer-2-peer protocols. As I love the idea of BitTorrent Sync I use one of my servers in the Google Compute Engine to host a btsync daemon besides an OpenVPN server that lets me bypass this firewall. The setup is actually working pretty well. As I don't want to route all my traffic through the VPN I am blocking the outgoing bittorrent tracker and sync packets at my local NAT-Router and switch on the VPN from time to time to sync with the server. And here comes the problem: Initially the OpenVPN is switched off and the server peer is offline. When I establish the VPN connection it takes a few seconds and the server peer is detected and sync works fine. Unfortunately if the server checked "Use relay server when required", this new connection is going through a relay server instead of the direct connection! And it remains that way!! If you instead uncheck "Use relay server when required" the connection is also established but NOT through the relay server. I realised that something was wrong when I observed the outgoing traffic of my server. Of course that's not really a widespread setup but I think it points to a little (not so obvious) problem with the peer discovery. Of course this is hardly enough information to check if that is really a bug, but if you want to investigate this I could provide you with additional setup info. -- Andre
  3. Hi Guys, We started using the API and have successfully installed and remotely configured the sync service on about 130 windows players connected to 3G. We currently have 2 Linux servers configured with a 'full access' key to initially serve the content. All the players and servers can directly connect to each other over the OpenVPN connection and the players are setup with a read-only key. We setup a listen port of 40000 on the players and 40001/40002 on the servers to eliminate any firewall issues. We noticed that only the first 50 players in the network will connect and sync with the primary Linux servers. The rest of the players will do nothing even after numerous reboots and reconfiguration. If we setup a second secret key on the failed windows player it connects and downloads from the servers. I found the following link, but not sure if we are experiencing the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
