Lan Peer Sync Sometimes Blocked By Files Queued Up For Wan Sync

Hi I use btsync in a small office with 3 peers on a 100mb/s LAN and a single peer on a separate off site backup machine at my house which is accessed over a the WAN via a 8mb/s connection (actually more like 0.2mb/s practical upload speed). We share documents locally using a synced folder, this is great and much better than dropbox because we don't have to wait for the file to upload to a server on the WAN before another user can access it. It's almost as good as having all documents accessed on a server but I can have my entire office on my laptop when I'm away.

 

Except, sometimes, when there are a lot of files queued up for sync, a recently edited file seems to wait in a queue before it gets synced to LAN peers. This can take a long time if there are a lot of files queued to sync to the WAN peer. Is there any way I can configure btsync to prioritise syncs to fast peers over slow ones?

 

Thanks
