Btsync Versión Router (Optware/ddwrt)


Recommended Posts

As most routers does offer NAS features, it's a natural step to enable btSync on it.

Most common way is to build optware packages compatible with asus native os and Openwrt as well compatible with ddwrt, but also ddwrt developers use to pre install some packages on ddwrt (as transmission) btSync would be an popular add on in routers loaded with open-source os.

FYI you can either compile it manually (as with any other "unsupported" linux flavor) or install a package manager (such as portage) and install it from there.

DDWRT does have its own built-in package manager, ipkg, which someone could make a package for, to simplify things.

However, be aware that BTSync, much like torrent clients, may overload or run slowly on your router.

There have been a few threads on having a MIPS port. I'd be willing to take any limitation (such as minimum CPU/Memory) since this would only run on a modern dual core router (most new AC routers run Broadcomm 2x800 chips and 128-256MB memory). I've run btsync on an old 1x1GHz / 128MB Seagate goflex ARM without problem. Limiting to a 3.x kernel will help with the ulibc issues - anything running 2.6 is probably an OEM firmware on an outdated platform


A raw binary is fine as well since dealing with the router package managers is more work and dd-wrt/openwrt allow scripts during startup. If you supply the base binary, the community can deal with deployment issues
