    Hi everyone
    have any of you managed to install the Linux version of goodsync on Antix, I coould not find it in the list of installable packages but on their website there are a few Linux options available. I have downloaded a tar.gz and the.run version of the package. My WD Nas Box just got an OS upgrade and goodsync is now available on board and wanted to get this up and running if possible. from what i can see about the package you can run it command line and it has separate components depending on what you want.

    I am looking at the client component rather than the server part as thats what the Nas will be doing

    Goodsync: proprietary. So it will not usually be available in linux repositories except if the demand is huge.

    I am looking at the client component rather than the server part as thats what the Nas will be doing

    From the link you provided:

    Components
    These are the components provided:
    * gsync — command line version of GoodSync client.

    So you can use the terminal based gsync included in the provided programs in their website.

    If you were looking for a GUI version, and not the terminal based client, you are out of luck. From the same link:

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Q: Is GUI version planned?
    A: Not now. Command line version is produced for scripting, automation and data center operations, none of which requires a GUI.

    You can read the “gsync: How to Use” section in the link you provided for learning how to set it up.

    Maybe you can find a different program that has GUi interface for what you want to do (maybe rsync, but that depends on what you want to do with it). Describe your desired functionality and maybe someone with experience can recommend something different.

    Why would anyone want something like that on their system?

    @crashed disk: why don’t you say what you are trying to do?

    We have the following available at no cost:

    grsync (1) – GTK+ frontend for rsync
    grsync-batch (1) – Grsync batch session runner

    luckybackup (8) – a powerful, fast and reliable backup & sync tool
    luckybackup-pkexec (8) – a powerful, fast and reliable backup & sync tool

    rsync (1) – a fast, versatile, remote (and local) file-copying tool
    rsync-ssl (1) – a helper script for connecting to an ssl rsync daemon
    rsyncd.conf (5) – configuration file for rsync in daemon mode

    ntfscp (8) – copy file to an NTFS volume.
    scp (1) – OpenSSH secure file copy

    The description of GoodSync indicates that:

    These are the components provided:
    * gsync — command line version of GoodSync client.
    * gs-server — GoodSync server that serves files via GSTP protocol.
    * gscp — GoodSync file system command line client, to download / upload / rename files.

    It seems to me that the tools provided above also provide these services, are available, not proprietary, and they have no cost.
    I found all of the commands I noted above using an apropos command for sync and scp.

    Please tell more people about the benefits and description of timeshift.

    No need to purchase commercial products when there are so many other free alternatives available.
