somebody here wanna make a pet?

I guess this is something useful for Puppi (the Raspberry Pi version of puppy) too. The raspberry pi looks like an excellent addon to any router. Just add RetroShare and BitTorrent Sync and be your own cloud!

hi dromeno,

bittorrentsync should just work if you follow the instructions.

1. download it, unzip it, then left click on it to start. (this starts the daemon which you can't see)
2. you then need to access it through it's webui for linux
Code:
YourLocalIP:8888/gui
e.g. 192.168.1.137:8888/gui into the address bar in your browser

For people still reading this thread: the BT sync team has announced that they are working on a version which follows symlinks. I hope that will become reality soon. Combine that with the one way sync feature (already built in) and this app becomes a great addition to email programs.

Same as Dropbox. Online backup and synchronization of files between phones and pcs and tablets but it's secure and free for unlimited storage.

Probably obvious to seasoned linuxians but the proper url for the btsync gui is

http://127.0.0.1:8888/gui/

... if you use the ip adress which shows up when you look it up at whatismyip.com or similar it does not work.

PostPosted: Sat 18 Jan 2014, 12:39    Post subject: BtSync in Squeezed Arm Puppy (Raspberry)?  

I am trying to add BtSync to Squeezed Arm Puppy Alpha 4 so I can use my raspberry pi & puppy as my personal cloud. Unfortunately it appears that version 1 1 82 of BtSync does not want to be executed (?) However, it should be possible to use btsync on ARM devices.

Am I doing something wrong?

Yes I am doing the most obvious thing wrong: not using the ARM version of btsync. Which is here:

http://btsync.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/btsync_arm.tar.gz

BTW I got the idea from here. Looks like a superb idea but I have no clue of it will work on squeezed ARM puppy:

Not quite.
BT sync needs both machines to be on at the same time. This means that while it is very useful there are cases where it is not as useful as Dropbox,Skydrive, etc.

If peers were willing to store and forward this limitation could be eliminated.

True. One option to do just that is to have a raspiberry pi device at home and use that as always-on node (power consumption is just 3.5 watts or so):
