backup server viewable?

Recommended Posts

So I understand that my files are protected from eavesdropping while in transit. I will be setting up a server to act as a central backup to which to sync my files. I have a port which is exposed to activily listen for traffic; it is an obscure port, but it is open.

I was wondering if anyone who knew the IP address and the port could see the contents of the BTSync folder even without the secret?

First off thanks for replying. that was my main issue with using it. Could you perhaps elaborate as to why you can't? Are the contents of the folder encrypted by the secret while at rest or is it some other reason?

In short, no!

In long: No, IF you trust Bittorrent not to have made any security-relevant programming error. (If you know anything about programming you can ask yourself how probable that is.)
