"cannot get the list of trackers"

Recommended Posts

One of my Macs is showing a banner at the bottom which says "cannot get the list of trackers" (see image).

I have quit and restarted the app, but the message persists.

I am using version 2.3.3 on a Mac running 10.11.3

I too get this, starting with 2.3.3.

Applies to both win10 and arm/rp2 installation. These two are on the same lan

 

Although, my third device, also a win10 pc does not have this message while idle. This one is in another city..

Kinda sounds like network related, but neither i changed anything.

 

In prevous builds like 2.3.2 i did saw "could not get list off trackers" flashing for 1 second and then dissappeared when launching, but now its persistent in 2.3.3

I have this issue as well and I'm running 2.3.1 so i don't think it's an issue due to 2.3.3

Parts of this site, including the forum and other help sections have had intermittent connectivity over the past few days. My assumption is that maybe the tracker servers are experiencing the same intermittent connection, causing this message in all clients, regardless of client version.

I've been using BitTorrent sync for several years, mostly without significant problems. However one of my peers now reports "No tracker connection available. Cannot get the list of trackers" and shows zero peers connected even though all my other peers can see each other. Sync is not happening as a result.

There are a few tracker-related messages in the logs but they seem fairly benign. The only thing I can think of is that my local IP is 192.168.5.11 which is obviously not public - but I haven't changed anything so that seems unlikely.

Any ideas what's going on?

I’m having the same issue – just one of my pears can no longer connect to my server.  I turned on the relay option which allowed it to connect but I would prefer to connect directly for speed.  It’s also getting the error no tracker connection available.

hawkman,

as a workaround use "predefined hosts" feature. The log piece shows only attempts to connect to tracker, but it doesn't show the result. Are you using proxy? if yes, double check its setting in Sync prefs.

This is a regular http connection on port 80, so you can trace the connection with Wireshark, for example. ISP may also block it, or the problem may be in DNS name not resolved. 

Anyway, you can just add tracker and relay addresses to you hosts file, or use "Predefined hosts" option in Sync settings.

I'm still trying to fix this. I have added the following entries to my hosts file to test:

52.0.104.40    t.usyncapp.com

67.215.231.242    r.usyncapp.com

I've mapped port 3000 tcp/udp and 22222 (configured in Sync) tcp/udp to my machine.

... and the results are the same.

What am I missing?

Same here. Suddenly BTSync on Linux PC shows "Cannot get the list of trackers". Tried both, with/without relay and with/without tracker server. All devices are on the same LAN. Two mobile devices see each other and sync fine. On Linux Desktop I have even re-installed and re-configured BTSync and still getting the same error.

@hawkman

Tracker and relay have 3 addresses, which are picked randomly. Did you use predefined hosts for peers to get connected? If still no luck, can you please submit full log to support? with a few details about your network setup. Thanks

@RebelCoderRU 

Tracker is not necessary for LAN connections. If your peers connect all right, you can ignore that warning.  Please also share the logs to support. Instruction for collecting logs is here

PM replied.

Yes, you need to remove all barriers between peers - open and forward Sync ports in firewalls and routers., allow Sync traffic on firewalls, etc

Same problem here.

I have two sites that are doing the same behavior as described.

- OS on both site is Debian 7

One site I just upgraded 2.27 to 2.36 and it wouldn't see any tracker/peers after the upgrade.

** Before the upgrade, it was working fine!

I even tried to uninstall/reinstall and redo all the shares from scratches and it's always the same result

On the other site, because of some bad clusters, I had to change the HDD and I installed rev. 2.3.6 on the new HDD.

Note that the OS installation came from a staging IPX server so, except for btsync, it is exactly the same as the old HDD.

If I put back the old HDD that was having 2.2.7 installed, it connect to PEERS very quickly and as soon as I reconnect the new one with 2.3.6 it show "cannot-get-the-list-of-trackers" ...

It seems it can see peers but for some reason broken pipes happen.

Not sure if it is related to this issue but here's what I can see in the logs.

[20160404 15:00:39.424] PD[2429] [6AA5]: checking tunnel connection to peer, transport: TCP, endpoint: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:56634

I don't have access to the firewall so I can't test if it is working with predefined host but since it is working with 2.2.7 and not with 2.3.x the problem isn't a firewall issue.

So I've done some digging, and it appears that my IP address was blacklisted with SORBS even though it's an ISP-assigned one and I have never been a spammer. 

Question for BitTorrent, Inc: do you block service at your end based on blacklists?

The fact that plugging back the HDD with 2.2.7 is working, it doesn't seems to be related with blacklisted IP or a network issue.

At least on my end...

 

I was reviewing my posts and I saw that I forgot to mention that I am using the unofficial sync repos

I'm not sure it is relevant because it seems to happen with other OS.

@noiime

In your case peers already know about each other, so they do not need tracker to establish connection. The point there is about being able connect to each other directly. And once it's not firewall issue, please send the logs from both peers v2.3.6 to support. 

@hawkman

no IP is blacklisted.
