Where Can I Find All The Linux Sync.conf Commands?

Recommended Posts

In the linux server version of 1.4, the Sync.Conf file I am running hints that there are loads more options that COULD go into sync.conf.


Where can i find all of these options? I tried but this does not seem to make reference to any extra linux config entries to make in sync.conf.

Please let us know which params are not clear so we'll add KB article and/or improve sample config file.

I think mcai8rw2 is asking what the extra options are. GreatMarko gave two links to that info that I've also been looking for.


NOW I have an additional question about some preferences that are usually hidden. Using the API I can use api?method=get_prefs and get a list of current settings. There are many items in the list that don't seem to be documented anywhere. Some can be guessed based on their name but some cannot:

  "s_url": "",  "sdur": "0",  "sid1": "0",  "sid2": "0",  "sid3": "0",  "sid4": "0",  "sid5": "0",

I have no idea what those are and I'm not going to post the rest of the items that I don't recognize, either.

That makes 3 lists of possible preference settings for Btsync.


  1. The settings from btsync --dump-sample-config
  2. The settings from curl -s -n localhost:8888/api?method=get_prefs
  3. The settings from this article.


There is some overlap between all three lists.

Oh, I see now. There is a bug in 1.4 - it shows more parameters in API get_prefs call than it should. It would be fixed soon. Sorry for inconvenience.
