Install Resilio/Bittorrent Sync on a WD Wireless Passport Pro

14 January 2017 by CHP

I recently purchased the new Western Digital Wireless Passport Pro and wanted to sync the photos with my NAS.
I decided to use Resilio aka Bittorrent Sync aka Btsync for the syncing.

  • First enable SSH on your WD Passport Pro.
  • Then SSH into the device.
  • mkdir /DataVolume/resilio
  • cd /DataVolume/resilio
  • Download the latest version of Resilio Sync for ARMHF:
  • wget
  • tar -zxvf resilio-sync_armhf.tar.gz
  • rm resilio-sync_armhf.tar.gz
  • Create a default config file.
  • ./rslsync --dump-sample-config > /DataVolume/resilio/btsync.conf
  • Then start Resilio and configure through your web browser.
  • ./rslsync --webui.listen

And that’s it. Resilio Sync starts and is happily syncing away!


If you want Resilio to autostart when your WD Passport starts, follow the instructions at HackViking but with a few changes.

  • For some reason the /etc/init.d/btsync script doesn’t autostart on its own.
  • Since I have Plex Media Server autostarting already, I edited:
    nano /etc/init.d/S80plexmediaserver
  • I added /DataVolume/resilio/rslsync--config /DataVolume/resilio/btsync.conf to the startme() block.
  • And added killall rslsync to the stopme() block.

Now as long as Plex Media Server starts, then Resilio will start when you turn on your device. A bit hacky, but it works.

Find gifts for men, gifts for women, gifts for mom, gifts for dad, gifts for everyone all for under $20.

High Level Tutorial to install dns2tcp and use it on your iOS device.


Ubuntu/debian server
domain name
jailbroken iOS device

Configure your domain and create a subdomain:

Create an A record and NS record (check with your domain registrar)

tunnel      IN      A
d2t           IN      NS

replace with the ip address of your Ubuntu/debian server
replace with a domain name in your control


Server configuration

Install dns2tcp:

sudo apt-get install dns2tcp

cat > /etc/dns2tcpd.conf <<EOF
listen =
port = 53
user = nobody
key = password
chroot = /tmp/dns2tcp/
domain =
ressources = ssh:

Run dns2tcp:

dns2tcpd -d 1 -f /etc/dns2tcpd.conf


Client Configuration

Install MobileTerminal, OpenSSH, and dns2tcp on your jailbroken device.

Run in MobileTerminal:

dns2tcpc -z -k password -d 1 -l 2222 -r ssh

Download iOS pac file
Save it to /private/var/root/proxy.pac
