I am finding some inconsistent behaviour when configuring SyncTrayzor “Global Discovery” and “Enable Relaying” and need a little guidance.
What I am trying to accomplish is to restrict syncing to occur ONLY when connected to the same local network, which is my home network. Let me explain:
I have a Windows 10 Pro desktop and a Windows 10 Home laptop. The desktop is on my local network and never physically moves elsewhere, but the laptop moves with me and connects to various networks. When I’m home and connect the laptop to my local network I want syncing to occur.
I have emulated this with two Windows 10 Pro virtual machines. In Actions → Settings → Connections I unchecked (disabled) both “Global Discovery” and “Enable Relaying” and syncing works without problems (thanks to recommendation from martinleben in response to my initial post).
When I configure the physical desktop and laptop systems in the same manner the connection between the two systems is not made when both are on the same network.
With a bit of peck-and-poke experimenting I found that if the desktop is configured to enable both “Global Discovery” and “Enable Relaying” and the laptop is configured to disable only “Enable Relaying” the connection between the two systems, when on the same network, is made. In all other respects SyncTrayzor is configured identically on both systems.
I am rather new to this so I am hoping that someone out there has some comments and/or recommendations.
Thanks very much.
