Use BitTorrent's Sync program to keep files on different computers up to date. You need to add the repository for apt-get to get the package from, first create the file.
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.list
Next, copy these lines into it:
deb http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free deb-src http://debian.yeasoft.net/btsync wheezy main contrib non-free
Next, import the signing key:
sudo gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 6BF18B15 sudo gpg --armor --export 6BF18B15 | sudo apt-key add -
Finally, update and install:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install btsync
To uninstall everything do:
sudo apt-get --purge remove btsync btsync-common
If you just do btsync then it will leave stuff behind.
A configuration window will pop up during install, just take the defaults. Please do not select https or set a password for the web gui!!! You can re-run the installer anytime by:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure btsync
The check the status, start, or stop with:
sudo service btsync status
Finally, login into the webui at computer_name:8888 to configure btsync.
