Hey there! First of all, I would like to say thanks to the developers of BitTorrent Sync. The application is fantastic and can handle large amounts of data. Although, there are some features missing: Own tracker and relay servers! We would have really loved to use BT Sync within our company, but without an own tracker and potentially relay server that's a no-go... So, I made some research and it seems like there isn't anything on the roadmap to make own trackers possible. That's why I've decided to start up Wireshark and analyze the tracker protocol. Soon I had all the necessary things together and I started working on writing a private tracker server. Here's my result, called sync.io. It is written in NodeJS and can handle a huge amount of load. Also, as a little gimmick, I've added a web status page which shows all announced shares and their peers. So far I've tested my private tracker server with about ~50 clients and didn't have any problems at all. Ofcourse, BitTorrent Sync does not offer the native ability to choose your own tracker server, so you will have to do some workarounds like editing your hosts file, overriding the DNS record (we did that in our company) or making some fancy firewall rules... You can read more about that at Github, were I've described everything as precisely as possible. So, feel free to test it out! If there are any suggestions, problems or something else, I will be glad to help out. The next thing on the roadmap of sync.io is an inbuilt private relay server... Regards NeoXiD
