We got a few issues related to uncommon network configurations and topologies that prevent Anytype from being used. Can you please share your network setup and configuration (especially un-common), so we can understand what works and what doesn’t?
The main goal is to help others solving network issues and get all the data for fixing Anytype network bugs.
There is one configuration that seems not working for now:
Openwrt soft routing, using openclash for bypassing
The configuration file setuped to identify BT traffic based on uncommon port numbers to prevent it from going through a proxy.
I am currently using Adguard on Windows to block domains parallelly. I have a VPN service that runs on my raspberry pi along with IPFire as a firewall. To date, I have not had any issue with the Anytype service.
@wemiprog I’d love this feature of anytype as well but doesn’t seem to work for me too. Even if both the devices are in the same network, anytype prefers to sync them through the cafe node? Having them open on the foreground in both the devices and making changes in any of them updates in the other pretty quicky (~ 3-5s). However, if one is down when the changes are made and comes up, it prefers to sync through the cafe node even when the other device is already up in the same local network. Making the sync local in this situation should reduce the delay.
However, I’m not sure if this is the intended behavior, and if not, not sure if this goes as a feature request or a bug fix.
The overal delay may be due to the fact that the exchange of info on already existing objects does not occur immediately. When you work offline the app trying to find known peers broadcasting the update request message first, after finding one being online → trying to establish connection for online interactions. And there is a delay between attempts. After that the difference between loading from a backup server and over a local network is minimal
Well, i want to use it on my work computer as well and i’m allowed to install stuff but i need to set proxy. I made already a post but it seems nobody has/wants to use anytype at work https://community.anytype.io/t/-/2242
@natrius just backed-up your request.
Also, with regards to this topic, my work computer is behind a GlobalProtect VPN that prevents the sync from happening. I don’t know how to be more specific on this, as I am definitely not a expert of networks
