  1. I setup my folder to be added to sync ("/opt/guestBook/guestsRecordings"), and after executing the sync.conf config file, noticed the .sync folder added to the folder. However, when I used the read/write secret key that I generated for the config file, there were no files available to sync to my PC (even though the source linux system had files to sync). Hoping to use this .conf file to allow folder syncing by generating a new secret key each time, as opposed to configuring this each time using the webUI. Is there something I may be missing in order to get that folder/subfolders contents to show up during sync when just using the sync.conf file from what you can see in my file? For reference, I installed Sync on linux and made sure to set all applicable folder permissions and enabled automatic startup + sync of current user folders. sync.conf
  2. Hi everyone, I have been using Resilio Sync for quite some time now and everything worked just fine until last week when I saw there was no syncing, no peer connection. Maybe a Windows 10 Pro update caused it, maybe the router, maybe the NAS, maybe the antivirus-firewall, I don't know, not yet anyway. I am using R Sync on an Asustor NAS (apk v2.4.4.) and on several computers (v2.5.10, now updated to 2.5.12). I only have local syncing so I have so far stayed away from relay and tracker servers. However, and this is where I definitely made a mistake, last week, becoming increasingly frustrated with all of this, in order to solve the problems, I downloaded a sample/default sync.conf and double-clicked it. It has not made things any better :-). The two pictures show (1) the NAS RSync setting where (in Dutch) it says that connection settings have been overwritten by config. Port is 5556 and on another tab yet another port. The second picture (2) shows a setting on one of my computers (listening port is 8888). FYI: I have ssh-ed into the NAS and I can only find json files referring to config and yes, also includes a port setting. On the computer more or less the same things. I haven't got a clue whether all those ports should be the same and where to start. Also, I should mention that, when ticking the tracker server, syncing does work. The thing is that everyting for me is local so I would like to stay on the LAN. So, let me get to my question, and I would appreciate your help a lot!: Without reinstalling Resilio Sync on NAS and computers, can I go back from the current situation, delete/change the settings that this default sync.conf has changed? If yes, how? If no, what can I do to fix this problem? If you need any additional information, just let me know. Thanks in advance for your help! Regards Hans
  3. Hi, I've been using bittorrent sync since version 1.0. In my nas i has the 1.3 version with the parameter --config /path_to_config_file/sync.conf Then updated to version 1.4 and everything is working like a charm. Everything but the settings in the new webUI. I choose among different columns tho show (size, sending, etc). Then, when i close the webui and open again all the custom columns are lost. I think the issue is in the config file. Hope you can help. And apologize for my bad .english. If anyone can't undestand i can try to explain better. Cheers.
  4. I decided to use the conf file rather than the webui today for a little bit more security. But, when I enter my info into the file, btsync will not start. I get the following error: Here is my conf file: { "device_name": "Linux Server", "listening_port" : 0, "storage_path" : "/bin/.sync", // "pid_file" : "/var/run/syncapp/", "check_for_updates" : true, "use_upnp" : true, "download_limit" : 0, "upload_limit" : 0, "shared_folders" : [ { // use /bin/btsync --generate-secret in command line to create new secret "secret" : "SECRETKEY", "dir" : "/home/folder1", "use_relay_server" : true, "use_tracker" : true, "use_dht" : false, "search_lan" : true, "use_sync_trash" : false, "known_hosts" : [ "", "" ] } { "secret" : "SECRETKEY", "dir" : "/home/folder2", "use_relay_server" : true, "use_tracker" : true, "use_dht" : false, "search_lan" : true, "use_sync_trash" : false, "known_hosts" : [ "", "" ] } { "secret" : "SECRETKEY", "dir" : "/home/folder3", "use_relay_server" : true, "use_tracker" : true, "use_dht" : false, "search_lan" : true, "use_sync_trash" : false, "known_hosts" : [ "", "" ] } ] } Any ideas as to what is not right?
