BitTorrent Sync

Hello Mr Logan,

I've recently come across BitTorrent Sync and would like to know your thoughts on it and if you or any of the tek group make use it?

My concern is I feel that it may not be very secure. Also since the end user is essentially the host, is there any way to make it more secure? Like a home firewall or such? I'm not very familiar with all this stuff so any help/advice would be appreciated.

Thanks all!

Eddie B.


I imagine it is pretty secure, the traffic is encrypted and only authorized clients can connect. Assuming there are no vulnerabilities in how it works. A firewall won't really do anything for you as you need to have the port open so you can use it anyway.

They discuss it in this Tek.
