Can not access WebUI until...

Recommended Posts


I got a weird problem as the title described. Here are details:

1. Environment

OS: Ubuntu server 18.04.2
Resilio-Sync: 2.6.3(1340)
License: Home Pro
ufw Status: inactive
Config file: $HOME/.config/resilio-sync/config.json

    "storage_path" : "/home/[USER]/.config/resilio-sync/storage",
    "pid_file" : "/home/[USER]/.config/resilio-sync/",

    "directory_root" : "/data/",

    "webui" :
        "listen" : ""

I run rslsync as my user, so the /usr/lib/systemd/user/resilio-sync.service is:

Description=Resilio Sync service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/rslsync --config %h/.config/resilio-sync/config.json
ExecStartPost=/bin/sleep 1



2. Problems

  • Can not access Web UI, unless I connected to the OpenSSH server or some program(run in background as my user too) listen on other port([what_ever_port]).

Other services like Nginx or Redis are works fine. But they are not run under my user privilege, so I guess maybe there is the problem. 

~# Before SSH connection
▶ curl -k -v
*   Trying
* Connection failed
* connect to port 8888 failed: Connection refused
* Failed to connect to port 8888: Connection refused
* Closing connection 0
curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 8888: Connection refused

~# After SSH connected
▶ curl -k -v
*   Trying
* Connected to ( port 8888 (#0)
> GET /gui HTTP/1.1
> Host:
> User-Agent: curl/7.54.0
> Accept: */*
< HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
< Connection: close
< Location: /gui/
* Closing connection 0

BUT, I got an old RaspberryPi 2, which have the same rslsync configuration, and it works fine in the lan(2.5.13(1301) Old Person License).

Any one technical support would be thankful!

I bought the early personal license and lately Home Pro license at last year. So I think this is not a harsh demand.
