Now, i can synchronize my files across different devices[pc.laptop.mobile.raspberryPi] thanks to BitTorrent Sync. Use of peer2peer sharing techniques to share files instead using a cloud service 😉
i prefer to use this app to sync my music from my pc to raspberry pi [media center] and have it sync with my mobile 😀
It facilitates me of instead manual adding files to my mobile or to move file downloaded from my phone to pc.
You can download bittorrent sync here for pc and mobile version
Follow this guide to install the bittorrent syn on raspberry pi:-
sudo gpg –keyserver pgp.mit.edu –recv-keys 6BF18B15
sudo gpg –armor –export6BF18B15 | sudo apt-key add -
sudo echo deb http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.list
sudo echo deb-src http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install btsync
Note that if you get permission errors on the sources.list.d file, try editing the file manually with Nano:
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.list
and paste in these lines.
deb http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free
The go ahead with the update and install commands as before.
Upon installing the package, you’ll be greeted with a special installation script. Create a “default instance” operating on any random port number – I chose 10000 and just follow the installation steps.
Use another PC to browse its web interface – that is, type the IP address of your Pi, followed by a colon, and the web interface port chosen during setup – the default being 8888; so I typed https://192.1680.9:8888 .
Happy Synchronizing with your own cloud 😉
