Lou is a product marketing manager at BitTorrent, Inc., where he works on BitTorrent Sync, a free app that allows you to sync and share large files with anybody via secure, distributed technology. I had the same problem installing it today and ended up that I needed to open a shell on that jail and restart the btsync service. Trying to get this reliably work across BTSync updates and FreeNAS releases, makes me want to throw everything out the window.
FreeNAS enables users to build network-attached-storage (NAS) on nearly any hardware platform of their choosing. Once you have the thumb drive created, connect the computer to your router (only an ethernet connection will work, as FreeNAS does not support wireless connections).
Go to that address from a computer on the same LAN as the FreeNAS box and you will see the FreeNAS login page, which will prompt you to make a password.
Now that you’re in the FreeNAS Web UI, you’ll need to create a user and group for BitTorrent Sync.

Click on the “Files” dataset and click “Change Permissions”, the first button on the left at the bottom of the window. We’ve come out with a tutorial on how to do this in the past, so that anyone can turn their old computers into a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device running BitTorrent Sync. Note that this password will be the root password for the entire FreeNAS install, so choose carefully!
The fourth button from the left at the bottom of the window is the “Create Dataset” button. Under “Jail Root”, click browse and click through the folders until you can select the dataset you created called “Jails”. And it works – there are some changes in the GUI of both FreeNas and BTSync from the guide, but it was pretty easy to do anyway. My use case is that I want files (pictures) synced between my FreeNas on one location and my Synology NAS on another (for backup purposes).
If you don’t want to worry about the details, just name the volume, click the “+” button next to your disks to add them to the setup (it will make a recommended RAID setup based on the drives you add).
Create a dataset called “Jails” and another dataset called “Files” (or something else that lets you know this is the folder you’ll be syncing).

A progress bar will appear showing the progress of the plugin download, which will take a while depending on your internet connection. Once the downloads and installation complete, go to the “Installed” tab and turn on the BTSync service.
You shouldn’t need to modify any of these settings, so just click the link under “here” to be taken to the BTSync Web UI. When you go to add a folder, make sure it’s the one you selected as the “Destination” when “adding storage” earlier.
Fill something into the Full Name field and choose a password, then click “OK” to create the user. You can add more folders by repeating the process with making a dataset, changing the user and group permissions, and adding storage to the btsync jail.
