I have set up the
daemon approach for a single-user setup using guidance in https://docs.syncthing.net/users/faq.html. I use Ubuntu 20.04 on my user machine and 18.04 on the server and installed
syncthing as an Ubuntu package on both. On the server I ran
systemctl --user enable syncthing systemctl --user start syncthing systemctl --user status syncthing
I thought that this would set up a persistent
daemon on the server. But when I’m not logged into the server, and watch the
syncthing browser gui on my user machine, it shows that the server is disconnected. As soon as I log into the server, the user web gui shows it synchronizing. Any guidance appreciated.
