Agent configuration file in detail

The Resilio Agent configuration file is a JSON formatted file, pre-generated by the Connect Management Console. Agent uses this config to connect to MC. After performing installation steps, the sync.conf file is moved to a destined directory, can be found in:
Windows: C:\Program Files\Resilio Connect Agent (default, or another dir selected for agent installation)
Mac: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Resilio Connect Agent
- if installed manually, the selected dir.
- if installed from package, it'll be /etc/resilio-agent or /home/username/.config/resilio-agent/ depending on configuration. 
NAS: see here.

List of config parameters in the “management_server” section:


Default value




IP:port pair where client will attempt to connect to Connect Management Console, supports IPv6 *, supports DNS name instead of IP


depends on certificate

Management Console certificate fingerprint



pre-generated authentication token. Used by Management Console to authenticate client initial connection.



Setting to true will prevent client to check Management Console's certificate fingerprint.


 Parameters, not included in “management_server” section: 

"folders_storage_path", default value %DOWNLOADS%. You can use it to configure where Agent should create folders when they arrive from the Connect Management Console. This variable points to a different location on different platforms. More information can be found in the path macros article.

"cmd_pipe_name", default value "syncsvccmd_server". This is pipe name for Management Console to communicate with Management Server Agent. Used only in this agent's config. 

You can put IPv6 or IPv4 address there, depending on what address Management Console is configured to listen to. 
The correct syntax for IPv6 is: "host":"[ip:v6:add:r]:8444".
