I’ve basically just finished setting up syncthing on five boxes.
For the most part it’s four boxes copy to one, a headless box. But there is some active sharing folders too. Works great. Except for one snag.
When I change the GUI IP from localhost to 192.168.2.2:8384 I can no longer access the gui when I rdp into it. But I can get it remotely.
I have not experienced this behaviour on the other boxes. It’s just an inconvenience really as it’s more important I can view that box from another machine on the network.
Great product otherwise.
It’s a windows machine. Sorry I forgot to say.
0.0.0.0 is for access from anywhere, externally or internally.
Thank you Simon, I understand.
Forgive me if it write plainly below.
I go to my machine with an ip 192.168.2.2 on the network,
Log on to syncthing at 127.0.0.1:8384
Set the gui listener to 192.168.2.2:8384
Type 192.168.2.2:8384 into browser - doesn’t resolve.
I go to another machine on the network and enter 192.168.2.2:8384 it resolves fine and correctly.
On that one install I cannot access the gui of that one machine from itself.
Four other installs are fine. Access via the adjusted IP both locally and from other machines.
As I said originally this isn’t a dealbreaker, the machine is headless the remote access is more important. It’s more that it’s buggin me to have an unsolved issue.
As Simon says you should set the listen address to 0.0.0.0:8384 if you want to access it from everywhere. Setting the listen address to 192.168.2.2 means it does not listen on 127.0.0.1
I took 0.0.0.0, here and in the documentation, to be shorthand for any address.
Sorry for being thick. Thanks guys
