Install And Configure Syncthing

Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.

Syncthing can be installed in the client area at Services > Click the green Active Button > Applications.

 

Once installed Syncthing can be accessed on the Installed Applications page at Services > Click the green Active Button > Installed Applications.

Once you access Syncthing you will notice that its not secured by a username and password so the first step will be to secure the Syncthing GUI.

In the top right hand corner of Syncthing you will see an Actions button if you click this a drop down menu will appear where you need to select the settings option.

Now you need to add a username and password which will be used to login to the Syncthing GUI and then click Save.

Please note do not change the GUI Listen Address, changing this will mean the Syncthing GUI cannot be accessed.
