Instructions for use during an event
The purpose of this setup method is to reduce external network load:
- Ideally you have several mentors connected to the network who already have the folders synced to their computers
- The BTSync installers are provided to attendees on a thumb drive with a PDF of these instructions
If you are unable to do this BTSync can be downloaded from: http://labs.bittorrent.com/experiments/sync.html
Double click on BTSync.dmg
Drag the BitTorrent Sync icon to the Applications folder
Run BitTorrent Sync from your Applications folder
If asked, configure your firewall at the 1st run to allow BitTorrent Sync accept incoming connections.
Double click on BTSync.exe
If necessary, allow the program to make changes to your computer and follow the install wizard accepting the default settings
After installation, BitTorrent Synс will start automatically
Sync the Community Tools installers
Select "I have a secret"
Enter the secret for your version of the community tools
Select a folder to sync the files to, suggested folder names:
Mac: Drupal Community Tools OS X
Windows: Drupal Community Tools Windows
Wait for tools to sync
BitTorrent Sync will synchronize chosen folder(s) immediately. You can access BitTorrent Sync's interface via the Menu Bar (Mac) or System Tray (Windows) icon.
You can keep track of the synchronization process in the History tab.
Once BitTorrent Sync has finished downloading the folder navigate to it and open Community Tools Setup Instructions.pdf which has instructions for installing the individual tools.
