I am using ST between several computers. All syncing is done via a central server, that is, no computer talks directly to any other computer except the server.
Recently I decided to add my home folder on a Ubuntu 16.04 machine to be synced. As always, the initial scenario was to send-only to the server, where, once that was complete, it could be synced to other computers as extra redundant copies (never to replicate the home folder as a working home folder onto different machine).
What I’m finding is that nothing ever gets transferred to the server. The home folder gets scanned on the sending side, and the it will say “Syncing x%, xxGiB”, but transfer rates, both up and down, will remain stubbornly at 0bps.
This problem seems only to affect the home folder share. On this machine there are 3 other shares, and they all sync fine. The only time the bitrate will leave 0 is when something gets updated that affects one of the other shares.
Is there something I’m missing? Although I get the warning about possible problems with syncing the ST config, I ignore it since i know the location on the other side is not part of that machine’s ST config.
I’m hoping somebody here may say or ask something that will shed some light on this oddity.
