Tutorial: Computer-Computer syncing over LAN

This tutorial will teach you how to set up B-Folders on two computers connected to the same local area network (Wi-Fi or Ethernet).

1. Check the firewall on the computer

When you start B-Folders for the first time, the firewall on Windows will normally show a pop-up window asking you whether to allow B-Folders to access the network. You must allow B-Folders to access both private and public networks. If you have blocked B-Folders somehow or you are not sure, check your firewall settings. Make sure B-Folders is added to the program exception list and that the exception is enabled (the corresponding checkbox is checked).

2. Automatic discovery

Wait for up to 3 seconds and the two computers should discover each other - you should see the name of the other peer in the peer lists of each computer.

3. Initiate a sync session

Click on the peer icon in the peer list that you wish to sync with.

NOTE: The database of the peer initiating the sync session must be unlocked. The database of the peer accepting the sync session can be either locked or unlocked.

If you experience any problems, check B-Folders Sync FAQ and troubleshooting or contact Support.
