Can not change the URL for access through the GUI an a Ubuntu 16 Server


(Richard Zsemberi) #1

Can not change the URL for access through the GUI an a Ubuntu 16 Server. Changed in the “/root/.config/syncthing/config.xml” file from “127.0.0.1:8384” to “0.0.0.0:8384” but when restart and call “systemctl status syncthing@root.service” via SSH, adress is still 127.0.0.1:8384

Are you sure? Have you checked that it doesn’t in fact listen on all addresses?

And, don’t run Syncthing as root.

This sounds like you changed the config file while Syncthing was running: That doesn’t work. You need to stop Syncthing, then edit and start again. If you want to do it while it is running, you need to use the rest api. Also what Jakob said regarding root.

Also, where does systemctl status print the listening ip and port? If you mean the Syncthing GUI url printed into the log, this is expected, as that’s the url you should put in your local browser to acess Sycnthing. Two lines are printed, the first is the url you should use, the other is the listening address for API and GUI.
