Introduction

Resilio, previously known as BTSync, is a reliable solution that will help you sync your files from your Seedbox to your local device.

Tired of having to download your files via FTP every time you need them?

NOTICE: Resillio Sync service is NOT enabled on the seedbox by default. In order to get it running please use the SeedboxCP from your Client Area, and on the list of the available services find Resillio Sync, and enable it.

In fact, you can also synchronize your files to your mobile device: iOS or Android

Let’s start syncing files, shall we?

Step 1

Open up a browser on your local PC or mobile device, then enter the following URL: https://${YourSeedboxIP}:8888 e.g. https://192.168.100.1:8888

You will be prompted with a similar window. If you are worried about certificate notification that you just got before, we want to assure you that everything is fine, this is normal behavior for self-signed certificates.

Step 2

After you are logged in successfully, the following screen will pop up.

Now you need to create a profile for your Resilio account. Enter the desired username, any will do.

Step 3

After your account is set up, we need to add some content so we can start syncing.

Click on Add folder in the top left corner, choose which folders from your Seedbox you want to sync.

By default, you will be in the root folder. Just browse through the folders and go to home > user. You should see your Torrents, Downloads folders or any existing folders you are using on your Seedbox.

Step 4

The folder is added, and we need to set up our secret code so we can start syncing.

Note: Only those who have this code can sync your files from the Seedbox to a local machine

Permissions:

  • Read Only: You or additional users will be able to view and download synced content

  • Read & Write: Users will be able to view download and upload content to the synced folder

Security

Here we can set up security for our links. A desirable setup is to leave settings by default.

Sharing your key

Your key represents a private key that is required to enter on any other device that you want to sync files with

This is useful if, for example, you want to provide your key to your friend and allow him to only download your files, so you provide a Read-only key

QR code

Alternatively, same as with your key, you can use a QR code to access your content. Download the following applications on your mobile, grab a QR code and start syncing.

Synchronize files to your own devices

Click here to install Resilio on your favorite platform.

After installation is done, follow these steps to sync files from your Seedbox

  1. Startup Resilio

  2. Click on the ‘cog’ icon, and select Manual connection

  3. Enter your secret key

The progress can be viewed on both the Seedbox WebUI dashboard and the Resilio window. Also, you can see how many peers are currently syncing your files.

Login issues?

If by any chance you are not able to log in, or just forgot your password for Resilio, there is a way to resolve it. You would have to log on to your seedbox, either via ssh or remote desktop.

  1. Use the terminal and use this command

    changeseedboxpass

  2. Use the utility to change/reset the 'ResilioSync' password

    NOTE: This command will not change the password that's shown in your Client Area for this specific service.

I don't know what to do next...
