Hello, I have been using Syncthing for a month or two now and it works wonders, but I am still new to how it works. I am wondering if it is possible for me to sync just like I do on the internet with a hard wired or blue tooth connection?
I was considering a scenario where I would not have an internet / data connection from my smart phone to my laptop but I would still like to sync changes between them.
If it is relevant, I also have an android phone and a windows laptop.
Bluetooth might not be doable, but even if it were, the bandwidth would be very low.
Set up the phone to act as a mobile hotspot (not guaranteed to be an option on all phones/carriers).
Some laptops support hotspot mode, so the phone would connect to the laptop instead of the other way around.
If the Android phone supports USB tethering (some carriers disable the feature), then that is an option.
Many Android phones also support USB Ethernet adapters, so that’s another wired connection option.
Another option is to get an inexpensive portable wireless router.
Personally, I think the last option on the list above is the most flexible because it’s not limited to just one device at a time, and once the initial setup is done, is plug-and-play from that point forward. (I have one called the “PQI Air Pen Express” that’s powered via USB: https://www.manua.ls/pqi/air-pen-express/manual)
