Syncing chain

Recommended Posts

Idea is: option to set 1 device as server so any client that starts syncing will upload to this device and from this device files will be uploaded to all other devices.I came out with this idea, because I have 2 devices on slow network and 2 on fast and when I want to sync anything on slow network it takes forever to upload the files.It just instead of uploading with full up speed to 1 device (50kbs-yes it's slow) it uploads files with 10/15kbs to these 3 other computers.Option to set something like syncing chain would be really useful.Please write if you know how to do this.I'm out of ideas.

The way things currently work, as individual machines get the files, they contribute to other machines getting the files.

The two machines together on one network should be getting maximum speeds because of the direct connection, thus allowing them to synchronize faster unless you've fiddled with advanced settings.

 

Sync chaining like this won't work quite as well as you'd think because of the fact that having multiple systems uploading would allow the overall average speed out of the slow network to be higher.

Well if you have one client with dedicated IP.

you can specify this IP on all other devices and disable all options that makes them discover each other.

So they all upload and download from the device with dedicated IP but not from each other.

maybe is a little off-topic, but i m looking for a small group of guy (20/30) that want to try to make a community of unknown that share part of their computer memory to keep data of other guys. A sort of peer-to-peer small cloud storage of unknown people. 

 

this is more a social experiment than a technological one.

we are in five so fire, and discussing a little in the "Sync Hack" section
