Api Fails After 5 Calls


Recommended Posts



I needed to establish identical structure of synced folders on several NAS units, so I wrote a small app to read list of folders and secrets from a file, call get_folders, then add_folder for each folder from the list not yet in BTSync setup.


Interestingly, only 5 api calls complete (1 get_folders and 4x add_folder), then it fails on HTTP 401 - Not Authorized. At this moment the utility exits. After restart, it skips already existing folders and adds 4 more, etc. 


It is running on QNAP TS-269Pro (QTS 4.0.5), btsync is 1.2.91 original i386 from BitTorrent download (not the broken binary distributed by QNAP).


Utility is written in python, using python 2.7, urllib and urrlib2. Password authentication is handled by creating urllib2.HTTPBasicAuthHandler() and using it in urllib2.build_opener(handler).


Does anybody have similar experience of API "getting tired" after few calls shortly following each other?
