I want to chime in here because I had (and still have) the exact same issue. I had a very lengthy discussion and troubleshooting sessions with support in January 2019 and the problem has never been fixed. Here are some details from my case back then, maybe it's helpful for 1P staff looking into it:
Case number: #REZ-51426-242
There was a second case shortly after that, which was only discussed via direct email, so I don't have a case number. The email thread subject was "There are syncing issues. Again." and it started Feb. 4th, 2019.
The jist of it and the conclusion was this:
Many network firewalls and advanced routers have a session state table that gets cleared out if there is no traffic for a certain amount of time (differs from device to device). 1P is not keeping the existing sync session (over TCP) alive, so it times out. After a while, it tries to communicate again but the firewall has already dropped the connection.
During the troubleshooting, 1P (Kyle Swank) created a special version of 1P that had a "Session keep alive" built in that I was asked to test for them. Unfortunately I never came around testing it and communications with 1P ceased (was my fault).
I think you guys (1P) should pick up on that old support case (I am available to answer questions) as I am certain this is the same problem here is in this case.
To the original poster: Do you use a hardware firewall in your environment or something similar?
Also, I have been using this workaround ever since: When you change something in 1PX, go into 1P Desktop, switch between two vaults (select another one, then go back to the first one) and it immediately starts syncing.
Hey @cryptochrome ,
I dug out your old conversations with us and read through them. Too bad you haven't kept the communication alive at the time, as this issue might have been resolved by now
I can definitely send you that special version they made for you back then so you can test it and see if you experience any improvement. If you'd like that, send us an email to [email protected] with a link to this forum discussion, then notify me here with the support ticket's code you received and I'll reply back with the link.
Hey @Yaron - I can test this but isn't that version utterly outdated by now?
@cryptochrome In theory it should have still worked, but I just tried it and there's an expiration date on it, so it doesn't launch the app after installation.
I'll contact our devs and see if we can get this test fix into a more recent build.
Sounds good, thank you.
This is happening again. I've attached a diagnostic report to my previous support case for further reivew. I've tried restarting just the 1password for Mac app and it's still not showing up so hopefully the diagnostics reveal some info about it.
@cryptochrome Can you please email us with a link to this discussion to [email protected] so we can continue there?
@bradical Thanks for sending a new diagnostics report, our team will be with you shortly.
