After creating the syncthing@.service file in /lib/systemd/system, I created a user on my system called
Then I run:
systemctl enable email@example.com
systemctl start firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I edit the config.xml file in the syncthing home folder to adjust the listening IP address to the machine’s IP.
Then, I open up a browser and load Syncthing. After that, I add the remote machine to Syncthing on my laptop and wait for the prompt on the server.
Now that we’re connected, I want to sync a folder on my laptop to the server. Creating that share prompts the server and when I attempt to point the share on the server to the intended sync folder, every time I get permissions denied to create .stignore and a folder as well.
So, I find myself manually creating that folder…
I thought I could simply
setfacl -m user:syncthing:rw that folder on the server to give syncthing user rights…but I’m probably missing a step or doing something wrong.
