Firstly, thanks for Syncthing, I have been using it to sync the files on a remote server with an external HDD connected to my laptop for over two years now and it works very well and is extremely useful, so the continued development is much appreciated.
Now I want to expand my use of it to sync the files contained within my Music folder on my NAS with a partition on another external HDD. The music folder is already backed up to the Cloud roughly every other week but I want more redundancy and a local backup that would be easier and quicker to restore from in the event of an issue with the NAS since the files represent a huge and growing time investment.
I am using a ReadyNAS Ultra 2 running ReadyNAS OS 6.10.1
The guide I am attempting to use to install Syncthing is a one written by Danish Nadeem called How to install SyncThing on ReadyNas and Autostart.
The processor on my ReadyNAS is an Intel Atom D425 @ 1.80GHz and I installed the Linux 386 v1.2.1 of Syncthing on the ReadyNAS, which appeared to install ok.
However I am stalled at Step 5; I can start Syncthing on the NAS but no Node ID appears. I have tried ending the process anyway and attempting the next step of editing the config file with
nano ~/.config/syncthing/config.xml but get
nano: command not found
(Not sure whether it has any bearing on the issue but I am SSHing into the NAS using Terminal via macOS.)
I hope that’s a decent summary of where I’m at. Unfortunately, the guide linked to above is now nearly 4½ years old so I feel it is likely that Syncthing (or ReadyNAS OS) has changed significantly in the meantime such that the guide itself needs updating in order to work.
In addition, attempting to visit the GUI in my browser by visiting
http://127.0.0.1:8384/ does not work either, even if I substitute the URL of my NAS.
If anyone can offer any pointers so I can get Syncthing to work on my NAS, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
