Where Is The Secret?

Recommended Posts

I want to share a folder with a mac on osx 10.6 which does not seem to be compatible with the latest update

After some googling I found that 10.3 would  work

It installed but it says it cant work with links I have to enter the secret

where do I find the secret?

What versions of Sync are you using on your devices?

 

Sync 1.3.x will handle secrets but not links

Sync 1.4.x will handle secrets and links

Sync 2.0.x will handle secrets (for 1.4-style folders only) and links

 

If you wish to view a secret of a folder in Sync 2.0, you would need to add the folder as a classic 1.4-style folder (By holding Shift when clicking "Add Folder"). You will not be able to view a secret for a native 2.0 folder, as these don't use secrets.

On that same token, how can I add 2.0 folders to a BTSync instance without the web UI? For security reasons, I don't want the web UI to be enabled. However, I want to link to 2.0 folders. What can I put in my "shared_folders" setting in the configuration file (i.e., ./btsync --config sync.conf) to get access to a 2.0 folder?
