I don't know why Synology uses so old libc. we need newer one to use ionotify, to have realtime information about changed files. We will look to the option to release a build without ionotify, directory will be rescanned every n seconds. Then we will run on older versions.

Synology DS1010+ Not OK. (DSM 4.2 Beta)

Synology DS508 Not OK. (DSM 4.0 - Latest)

Also Libc Issues.

I can test with a statically compiled version of SyncApp if you want. I believe this will circumvent the libc problems altogether, howevery I'm not sure about that.

I've also looked into the possibility of upgrading my libc on the synology. Luckily it was my test system, things broke beyond repair. Had to reinstall.

We do have statically compiled libc, however it needs to be supported by OS. In this case OS does't support it. We will look to option to disable ionotify to support older versions. But it seems we will need support from you in testing all variations, since it we won't be able to test all combinations.

I have been trying to get the SyncApp working on my Synology DS-712+, but as it seems to be a well known issue, this is running with a somewhat old version of GLIBC.

Today i've been giving it a go at compiling version 2.4, but it seems to be not as easy as one could have hoped for.

I will try to keep looking for a solution, undtil a upgraded ipkg package becomes available to support the CPU in the DS-712+

Waoo. Simple. Beautiful.

Successfully installed and tested sync on 2 Synology NAS DS712+ and DS713+ (both x86_64).

Special "sync synology build 1.0.116".

Worked like a charm between 2 optical fiber connections, each capable of uploading @50mb/s

As I ran merly 5.5MB/s, eg. around 40 mb/s, i guess the protoocol is working great :)

Continue testing but this sounds very promising.

I was able to get this working with my Zyxel NSA-221.

1. InstappFFP - http://zyxel.nas-cen.../wiki/FFP-stick - this must be installed and setup first.

2. Copy btsync file that is located in the ARM compressed file to /ffp/bin using telnet. - http://syncapp.bitto...sync_arm.tar.gz

3. Create file /ffp/start/ with the following text- this is to make it auto start when the NAS is rebooted.


Then make executable with chmod.

chmod u+x /ffp/start/

Hope this helps someone
