Generate Folder Key Outside Web Interface On Ubuntu Server 14.04

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


First post here - I have searched around a bit but can't find the answer to this question -


I've just installed Bittorrent Sync on my headless Ubuntu Server 14.04 using the apt-get method.


All is running fine and I can sync a folder for which I have an existing key (generated on another machine) succesfully by editing /etc/btsync/myinstance.conf to share a specific folder and copying in that existing key.


Now, what I want to do is to CREATE a newly shared folder on my Ubuntu box, and generate a new key. I've not got the web UI enabled currently and as I'm working remotely I can't enable the necessary port forwards to make that work for a few days yet.


Is there a way to generate a new folder key using terminal-only means?


I've tried

btsync --generate-key


./btsync --generate-key 

as found on several tutorials/forums, but I only get

btsync: command not found.

Apologies if this is very straightforward, I just can't quite find the solution to this...


Many thanks!
