"folder_Rescan_Interval" In Windows

I'm using windows server 2003 and btsync 1.4.93, how can I set "folder_rescan_interval" that is not present in "advanced" preferences of web ui? I'm using firefox for the web ui access.

In my understanding windows client doesn't use a config file, is it true?

Thanks for your help

artexx/trevellyan - I've spoken to the devs about this; it's currently a limitation of the Web UI, which is planned to be fixed, however there is no specific ETA for this at present.

 

In the meantime, the workaround - as indicated above - would be to set any advanced settings via a config file instead.

Then please clarify the correct approach. If I'm referring to http://sync-help.bittorrent.com/customer/portal/articles/1670248-advanced-preferences, and I want to turn off LAN encryption, would this be sufficient and correct?

{/* Advanced preferences can be added to config file. Info is available at http://sync-help.bittorrent.com */lan_encrypt_data: 0}

Other than wanting to know exactly how to map from the docs to the config file, I also ask because some of the boolean values are documented as defaulting to 0 or 1, while others are shown defaulting to true or false. Perhaps Sync's JSON parser doesn't care?

They should be interchangeable, however, I agree the documentation is inconsistent, and I'll flag that up.

 

Yes, you code fragment looks ok (of course, if you need to specify multiple advanced preferences, you'd then  need to comma separate them)

One more question, specifically about LAN encryption (feel free to move to a new topic).

 

Who wins when one peer wants to encrypt and another doesn't? Only one of my devices is headless and thus missing the advanced options in the GUI (and the others are Macs), so that's the only one for which I haven't been able to turn off LAN encryption. Will the other peers all be forced to encrypt when talking to it?

Starting from around ~1.4.81 WebUI for Sync by default only listens to loopback interface. For Linux there is a command line option "--webui.listen <IP:port>", though it is not implemented for Windows  computers. You can run Sync with config file and specify "0.0.0.0" for webui interface to force it to listen all available PC NICs.
