Insync-headless 3.0.6 starts but client cannot connect

Running insync-headless start --no-daemon results in the following output:

$ insync-headless start --no-daemon
INFO     2020-12-22 22:34:25,756 [mainlogs:_log_run:139] Core(app_version=, platform=Linux-x86_64-nixos/20.03.3113.d74573d8ae6) initialized
INFO     2020-12-22 22:34:25,791 [main:start_core:48] core started
INFO     2020-12-22 22:34:25,792 [unix_socket_server:start:106] unix socket server thread start

… I see that insync1000.sock exists in /tmp:

$ ls /tmp/insync*

… but the client CLI cannot connect and presumes the server has not started:

$ insync-headless status
Insync doesn't seem to be running. Start it first.

… note that no errors are reported by the daemon running in the foreground.

It’s worth pointing out that I’ve packaged insync-headless for the NixOS Linux distribution. I don’t see why that would present any problems (the server is running fine.)

Hi @pspringmeyer,

Thank you for raising this and apologies for the trouble. Let me forward this to our engineers for further investigation. Appreciate you including what your OS/setup is :slight_smile:

@miamoran do you have an ETA for a response? If it helps you to prioritize this, I’m a paying subscriber.

Hi @pspringmeyer,

Thank you for reaching out, I have followed this up with our engineers so we can determine the cause of the issue and resolve it as soon as possible!

I paid for a license and this software is not working. This is a major disruption of my workflows. I cannot recommend this software and I would like a refund please.

My apologies @pspringmeyer. Please send your receipt or PayPal transaction ID to with the link to this post.

Hi @pspringmeyer

Sorry for the late reply, can you send us the output of ps aux | grep insync while it’s running via insync-headless start --no-daemon?

Hi @pspringmeyer

Can you also send us the contents of /nix/store/8biw5kl4xv4qaipb05618qcwwanzm99i-unit-script-insync-headless-start?

We’ll fix this in our next release
