Random Ports/protocols And --Dump-Current-Config Parameter

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

is it really necessary to have a static port number? If not please change it to a random one like in utorrent. This should make it harder to be blocked by local firewalls (ie. chinese GFW). As a little extra this port can change every x minutes and switch between udp and tcp. or misuse common ports like 21, 25, 80, ...

 

I am using torrent sync to backing up domains from a linux server. The program has a  --dump-sample-config parameter. But it would be extremly nice to convert these binary config data that only can be changed via the web ui to a text like for reusing it on other maschines.
btsync --dump-current-config

and you have all keys and directorys and all the other preferences in a nice clean config.conf

When you install Sync, a random port number will be chosen, and can then be subsequently changed at any time.

Not sure I understand? What settings do you believe can "only be changed via the web ui" that can't be defined in the config file?
