Cannot Disable Basic Authentication For Btsync

Recommended Posts

I'm using a config file when launching btsync under linux ("btsync --config configFilePath"). In the config (json) file, I've removed both the "login" and "password" fields from the "webui" section but when launching btsync in the browser (http://ip:8888) the browser still asks for (basic) authentication.  According to the comments in the sample config file (generated via "btsync --dump-sample-config") I can, "remove 'login' and 'password' fields to disable credentials check". The API docs at http://www.bittorrent.com/sync/developers/api also state this.

 

Does anyone know how to configure btsync so the btsync Web UI does NOT require authentication?

 

Thank you,

Marc

Oops, my mistake.  I had already ran btsync and changed the admin password, and it looks like btsync uses its stored admin credentials, even though the config file specifies no credentials at startup.
