Multiple Webui Users, One Nas (Cubox-I)

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I wonder how people here are using BTSync on their NAS. Do you just have 1 webui that you use?
But what if you are with 2 persons or a family, you would want each of them to have their own BTSync account (their own WebUI showing only their synced folders/devices), or is that a crazy exotic thought?

 

I have a Cubox-i running GeeXBoX and there is a BTSync package available. But BTSync does not support user accounts (as far as I know). How are you guys doing this now?

You are correct that Sync doesn't currently natively support multiple user accounts.

A potential "workaround" however might be if you can install/run multiple instances of Sync on your NAS device, each with a different config file, with each one specifying a different listening port. This could theoretically allow different users to connect to your NAS on different ports.

As I say, running multiple instances of Sync isn't officially supported/recommended, but could be a possible workaround to enable a form of multi-account support

That is exactly what tuxpoldo did with his BTSync Server package for Debian/Ubuntu.

I thought about using his github project to create a similar package for GeeXBoX (have a Cubox-i running GeeXBoX which is based on OpenBricks) but I definitely do not have the skills to do that.

But I am also worried that this multi-instance solution will have an effect on performance. That is why I am interested to hear more about usecases, how the folks here are using BTSync now, because perhaps I shouldnt worry about all of this and just put everyones secret codes in the webui, be done with it..

Zilexa, have you had success with multiple instances? I'm going to try it myself soon, as I'm in the same situation (one server with a massive RAID, two bts identities that I want to keep separate).
