Using On Linux (Debian) And Configuring Port To Avoid Conflict...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've recently come across bit torrent sync and I am really excited. I've been using dropbox but have outgrown it now with almost 1 TB of storage and other cloud synchronisation services are really expensive. I have installed it on my desktop PC and on Windows 2012 server and its working absolutely fine. I also have another server which is used to broadcast online radio which is a very powerful and secure server with a raid hard drive for backup and so I want to install it onto this Linux platform.

 

I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to Linux but with the GUI interface I think I will be okay. My problem is that the server that I want to put it on is a dedicated server which as I said I used to stream Internet radio and it is installed with Debian and our streaming software which is Centovacast. The storage space which is massive is pretty redundant so it makes an ideal place to keep data securely.

 

The software that is currently on the system has its own GUI interface which is accessed by IP: 2199. It also streams out a number of radio stations which currently range from ports 8000 through two 8050 although we add new streams regularly and that software is configured to allocate an IP address between ports 8000 and 10,000.

 

The manufacturers of the other software have said that I can install anything else on to the server providing it doesn't interfere in any way with the ports that their software uses. I'm a little bit concerned because I've seen that the GUI interface is accessed via IP: 8888. Clearly, with this software using ports 8000 to 10,000 I'm worried of any conflict here.

 

On my PC version it using a port in the 6000 range for listening. What I do not want to do – and cannot afford to do is install any software that could potentially knock off-line our radio stations! Does anybody know exactly the range of ports that this software uses and if, during the installation process this GUI ports of 8888 can be predetermined to something else – maybe 6000 or somewhere well away from the software I'm currently using?

 

As I said, the current software has its GUI interface access to port 2199 and then each of the channels for that we stream out on goes out between 8000 and 10,000.

 

If anyone can give me some advice on this I would be most grateful. I am really excited about finally making some use of this expensive yet redundant storage space that I own and finally being able to do away with services such as A Drive and an FTP server both of which I am paying a monthly subscription for!

 

Thank you in advance for your help :-)

 

All the best

Mike

Hi Mike,

 

You can configure both the port to use for the web interface (you can also disable it) and the ports used by the btsync replication mechanism. If you are installing on Debian, take a look at the Debian and Ubuntu Server Packages. Please read carefully the initial posting in order to understand your possibilities and options.

You are really funny ;-) The link you posted is an (outdated) summary of the topic in this forum I mentioned in my previous post. Additionally it contains also links to the original forum topic.
