Static identity on Linux in configuration file mode?

Recommended Posts

I am running Bittorrent Sync on a Debian server in configuration file mode instead of WebUI. I noticed that, every time of restarting btsync would create a new identity of this machine, which creates duplicated entries in peer list on other machines. Is there a way to fix this problem?

i had this issue on linux w/ file mode and i believe i fixed it with stopping the btsync process and running:

./btsync --config /btapp/config/btsync.conf --identity Vostro

it should create an identity file, and then you can start btsync your usual way... at least this appears to have resolved it for me. seems like a bug with installing and only running btsync in file mode. if you run it in webui mode it seems to create this identity file initially.

it's frustrating that you can't configure btsync to use a configuration file AND webui mode together.

well, actually you can:

1) ./btsync --identity NAME --storage /path/to/storage (where the path points to the "storage_path" as in your config)
2) ./btsync --config file.conf (so sync start with webui and settings from the "storage" where identity is already created and saved)
