Description

Hello Joshua,

Its been a while since we delivered our last update, probably you've been getting the latest from the public link. The new releases are here

https://download-cdn.getsyncapp.com/stable/FreeBSD-x64/BitTorrent-Sync_freebsd_x64.tar.gz
https://download-cdn.getsyncapp.com/stable/FreeBSD-i386/BitTorrent-Sync_freebsd_i386.tar.gz

...and for the change log you can go to

http://help.getsync.com/customer/portal/articles/1908959

I also wanted to ask if you could update the config file so that the faollowing variable is set to FreeNAS or FreeBSD respectively to look like this:

"vendor" : "FreeBSD",

"vendor" : "FreeNAS",

I have not heard any issues from FreeNAS and FreeBSD users, hopefully all is well.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you and have a nice weekend.
Omar Revueltas

History

#1 Updated by Joshua Ruehlig about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from Unscreened to Screened

Thanks for the notice. I plan to built the updated plugin when I get back home after this weekend.

The "vendor" variable goes in the config file?
  • For the FreeBSD port all we do is use the dump feature to create a sample config for users. I could edit this, if that's what you mean.
  • For FreeNAS I'm creating the config file with just advanced options not already available in the BtSync WebUI. I could easy add this variable in this case.

Hi Joshua,

A few notes from the dev team

--

When running the btsync , you can (and shoud) put a config file in parameter

$btsync --config sync.conf

A (relatively big) sample of this config file could be retrieve by running
$ btsync --dump--sample-config

…but here are the key elements to put in this config file (detailed explanations below)

{
"vendor" : "FreeNAS",

"display_new_version": false,
"webui" :
{
"listen" : "0.0.0.0:7777",
"allow_empty_password" : false,
"directory_root" : "/"
}
}

Explanations:

"vendor" : "FreeNAS", As all other parameters this one is optional but it could allow us to identify a specific problem on your system with our dump systems

"display_new_version": false, the btsync engine will check for update every day (for an update of the engine itself) , and the WebUI would show an information for the user to update the application by re-downloading the tarball. We would set this option to "false" so the webui will not show the information regarding the update of the "btsync". However we assume that your appstore/plugin mechanism has an update mechanism which will inform the user when a newer package is available.

"listen" : "0.0.0.0:7777" Set the webui listening interface and the port number. btsync running on the NAS will be accessible with a web service . 0.0.0.0 would allow other IP to access this interface. 7777 is an example of port . Please set a valid port

"allow_empty_password" : false, this is just an advice here, but you can enforce the use of a username/password to access the Sync WebUI. If unset (or set to "true"), the user doesn't have to necessary enter a username/password when setting up sync.

"directory_root" : "/", This is the location where users will be able to create a Sync folder, OR add a sync folder coming from a link sent by another device. Not that "/" might not be a good idea.
Users will be able to change this in their "preferences"
