Can I force Sync to do local network (LAN) syncing only and not sync via the Internet?


Yes! Simply disable use of tracker and relay in share preferences and in power user settings. Sync will then no longer connect to any remote devices (outside your local network).

Please note: If your peer established connection at least once over the Internet, Sync will cache the global IP address and will continue syncing over the Internet as before. To make sure syncing is done over LAN, you'll need to clear the cache on each desktop:

1. Set the "Peer expiration time (days)" in Advanced preferences - More Options to "0".
2. Restart the client.
3. Set the preference back to "7".
