BitTorrent Sync's protocol is same as BitTorrent??

Recommended Posts

I am wondering BitTorrent Sync's protocol is same as BitTorrent  !!


I have read information about peer discovery or p2p protocol on


What I want to know is what kind of protocol is used for BitTorrent sync when Syncing(or Transferring) the file.


Sync also using choking or piece select algorithm just like a Bittorrent(read on ?


can somebody let me know about that, or just please link to some page about protocol...


I will use Bittorrent Sync on the environment of Lan without via internet.


I am not native english speaker, so I am not sure that everyone can understand my question ..;;;


thank you for taking some time for reading.

The BitTorrent Sync protocol is a variation on the BitTorrent protocol - they are not identical/interchangeable.


Specifics about the BitTorrent Sync protocol haven't been released by BitTorrent Inc at this time (don't complain about that here - there are plenty of other developer-bashing threads around the forums already! lol)
