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.
- Download the latest version of Resilio Sync for ARMHF:
tar -zxvf 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 0.0.0.0:8888
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:
- I added
/DataVolume/resilio/rslsync--config /DataVolume/resilio/btsync.conf to the
- And added
killall rslsync to the
Now as long as Plex Media Server starts, then Resilio will start when you turn on your device. A bit hacky, but it works.
We have started a fun new project Gifts Under 20!
It is always hard coming up with gift ideas for someone. Sometimes you don’t even know how much to spend on a gift. We figured $20 is a good amount. Not too expensive, but not too cheap either for a gift.
At Gifts Under $20, we scour the internet for unique and funny gift ideas so you don’t have too!
Find gifts for men, gifts for women, gifts for mom, gifts for dad, gifts for everyone all for under $20.
Let us know what you think in the comments and if you have any gift ideas!
Anyone have thoughts on how to reverse engineer the firmware for the 4082 MiFi device?
Binwalk wasn’t able to find anything. I’m guessing the firmware is encrypted/obfuscated.
You can download the firmware update_2.1.32_2.1.56_MIFI4082_sprint.bin here.

A free server to test, experiment, learn and play with.
High Level Tutorial to install dns2tcp and use it on your iOS device.
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 126.96.36.199
d2t IN NS tunnel.yourdomain.com
replace 188.8.131.52 with the ip address of your Ubuntu/debian server
replace yourdomain.com with a domain name in your control
sudo apt-get install dns2tcp
cat > /etc/dns2tcpd.conf <<EOF
listen = 184.108.40.206
port = 53
user = nobody
key = password
chroot = /tmp/dns2tcp/
domain = d2t.yourdomain.com
ressources = ssh:127.0.0.1:22
dns2tcpd -d 1 -f /etc/dns2tcpd.conf
Install MobileTerminal, OpenSSH, and dns2tcp on your jailbroken device.
Run in MobileTerminal:
dns2tcpc -z d2t.yourdomain.com -k password -d 1 -l 2222 -r ssh 220.127.116.11
starts the dns2tcp tunnel ready to accept ssh connections on port 2222
ssh -D 1080 -p 2222 firstname.lastname@example.org
starts a ssh tunnel for SOCKS proxy
Configure iOS to use SOCKS proxy:
Download iOS pac file
Save it to /private/var/root/proxy.pac
Navigate to Settings > Wi-Fi > <your network> > HTTP Proxy > Auto
file:///private/var/root/proxy.pac in the URL
All data on your iOS device should now be tunneling through your SOCKS proxy over DNS!
