[Solved] Cannot link Ubuntu device - Please enter valid key

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I already have Sync running on my laptop&pc under windows, and another instance on my Raspberry Pi. I recently added Ubuntu as a dualboot to my laptop and wanted to set up bittorrent sync there as well. The program itself runs fine, however, I cannot link it as a device to my identity. When I enter the connection key, I get to choose the folder to link to, but once I've chosen that, the window to enter the key it still open and it says "Please enter valid key".

I've tried sharing one of my folders instead, and that works normally, it just seems the device linking doesn't work. What can I do about this?

Jineapple, do you have the latest 2.3.3 version on all your peers or at least 2.2.7 version? Do you copy the key or type it? I suspect that it might be related with older version or that you've typed "m[restofkey]" instead of "M[restofkey]". For example mR3YTINHLZM7E26DU3DBQL5GX3SP4CTGH. Because Sync shouldn't suggest you adding a folder when you paste M-key.

It works now - I think the issue was my default folder location (as that was the only thing I changed). It wasn't set to the one I wanted and I assume Sync didn't have the proper permissions for that folder.
