[Solved] Btsync Only Syncing With Active Ssh Connection (Archlinux)


Recommended Posts

BTSync only syncing with active ssh connection (ArchLinux)

I have setup some shares in BTSync 2.x & everything is syncing fine & i can connect via the web ui.
Once i disconnect ssh from the linux box hosting the shares, the sync stops, also the web ui stops working.
I have the same setup working fine on Openelec.
I âm using upnp on all nodes & upnp is enabled on my router. i have tried specifying a listening port & forwarding it on the router, this has no affect. I have also tried deactivating the firewall on the router also with no affect
Here is my btsync.conf
{  "device_name": "My Sync Device",  "listening_port" : 0, // 0 - randomize port/* storage_path dir contains auxilliary app files if no storage_path field: .sync dir created in the directory   where binary is located. otherwise user-defined directory will be used */  "storage_path" : "/home/drew/.btsync",/* set location of pid file */  "pid_file" : "/home/drew/.btsync/btsync.pid",/* use UPnP for port mapping */  "use_upnp" : true,/* limits in kB/s. 0 - no limit */  "download_limit" : 0,  "upload_limit" : 0,/* proxy configuration */// "proxy_type" : "socks4", // Valid types: "socks4", "socks5", "http_connect".
