Syncting has been successfully and satisfactorily installed on all my Windows PC and Synology NAS devices for a long time.
I had to replace the PC. On the new PC I reinstalled Syncthing and everything works.
Trying to log in to Syncthing on the Synology NAS (from the new PC) - nothing has changed on the NAS - I am asked for login and password which I have carefully saved (like all my other 200 passwords) on a key ring. Unfortunately I can no longer log in to Syncthing NAS due to an incorrect login or password.
Furthermore, there are no other options, unless you uninstall Syncthing from the NAS with the complication of having to restore six devices in which between six and twelve objects are stored in each.
A very, very long operation.
Is there anything I can do other than shoot myself?
I am very strict with password management. As you know it is essential.
In addition to using a cloud keyring for some years, when I create or modify a password I have a very strict sequence: first I record it on the keyring (or I add it by appending it if I already have one) then I insert it if necessary by copying and pasting from the keyring into the box where it is requested, I verify access, then add a reminder to delete the previous password after ten days.
I’m absolutely certain!
No idea, really. If it’s possible on the Synology, maybe run with STTRACE=api to get some extra log output, and/or look in the developer console on the actual network requests and see what happens.
I note that the error says “login failed, see logs” which is not what it says when the username/password is wrong. Rather it indicates a problem talking to the server to begin with. Does the Synology setup involve a proxy of some kind? Maybe there’s a setup issue there.
Desperate, after having postponed any attempt for days, today with the conviction of having to start restoring a total of over thirty synchronizations in 3 Windows and 3 Android devices, I uninstalled Syncthing for Synology on the NAS - without deleting - the application data.
Immediately afterwards I re-installed Syncthing on the Synology NAS: I received a request to indicate a username (I repeated the username I already had), the password (I repeated the last password I used) and MAGICALLY I found all the synchronizations.
A stroke of crazy luck.
Syncthing genes and maintainers. . . didn’t you know?
