FreeNAS: WebUI not up/reachable

Recommended Posts


I have created a Sync v2.3.8 jail on my FreeNAS v9.10 box.

Problem is, that the WebUI is not reachable. I can ping the jail's IP(v4) (locally fix, outside of my DHCP range), but no one is listening on port  8888.
A btsync process is running in the jail listening on 49692/udp (if I get the BSD netstat -4 -l  right...) but no one on 8888.
With sockstats -l -4 I see the btsync PID listening on 49692 and 12349 on the external IP and on 8888 only for

I guess, I have to configure sync to listen on the external interface in addition, or? Question would be where/how?
I found /.sync/settings.dat in the jails root, however vi throws an error "Conversion error on line 1 / Error: unable to retrieve line 1", whereas I can cat/less the file - including some broken(??) characters at the end of the first line at 'peer_id20:'
If the plugin/jail is corrupted, I would wonder since I had assumed that they are checksumed in the FreeNAS repo?

Cheers and thanks for ideas,

do you mean that you're trying to each it from outside your LAN or subnet? this may fail unless you have a kind of a tunnel to your LAN where Sync runs. 

if it's actually reachable, check btsync.conf. it shall be in /usr/pbi/btsync-xxxx/etc/btsync.conf. It shall have line "webui.listen": "". 

In any case you need to create an jail's alias the NAS's interface. the easiest way is via FreeNAS webUI : double click on the jail -> Advanced settings. Disable VIMAGE and NAT, and in NIC pick your interface. Restart jail. 

check with command jls that jail has address assigned and and open ui on it.
