Agents package installation on Linux

Resilio Connect supports installing Deb and RPM packages.


Before installing, retrieve agent's config file from Management Console, name it sync.conf and manually put in to /etc/resilio-agent folder

On systemd init systems use

systemctl enable/start/stop/disable/ status

calls to manage the agent service. 
On sysvinit, upstart systems use

service start/stop/restart/ status


Agent will create"rslagent" user and run with it. New directory "/home/rslagent/Resilio Connect Agent" will be used as default %DOWNLOADS% folder storage path macro. For other Path macros see here. On systemd init system here is also option to launch it as current user, not rslagent, see below. 


For Deb-based distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Zorin, Elementary, etc)

Create file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/resilio-agent.list with the following content to register Resilio repository:

deb resilio-agent non-free

Add public key with the following command:

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

Update your repository and install the agent:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install resilio-agent
