P2P syncs

Post by adoucette »

I have already purchased licenses for SyncBack SE and Pro, and have been using for years. Really is the best-of-breed sync tool for Windows - keep up the great work.
One feature I found myself wanting that prompted consideration of purchasing from a competitor is easy P2P sync.
Software like SyncThing (free) and GoodSync (expensive) both allow users to sync to peers either over LAN and WAN networks by simply matching an identifier key from the peers. So the companies must have set up something on their servers to point these peers to the proper IPs.
It very much simplifies the process for the consumer who isn't capable of configuring dynamic DNS and its updater, and figuring out routing and port forwarding (or just doesn't have the time). The software above finds the easiest path (e.g. LAN only if on same LAN) and also encrypts the packets before sending over the network.
This is something CrashPlan used to do for people as well.

Anyway, might make a nice feature for the consumer set -- and might open up possibilities for remote syncing and from mobile devices.
