Hi y’all, Friendly supporters !
Will you help setting up Syncthing for the following simple scenario, between 2 mutually trusted nodes (Windows 7) on the Internet :
Goal: on demand, securely send a handfull of new files from A to B. Similarly, accept (different) files from B to A. Immutable files, no synchronizing wanted after succesful transfer.
The question is : how to setup the directories/folders that Syncthing will use ? Shall we use TWO folders on each node, one per direction ? Or is the one “default” folder which Synthing would have created (on both sides) sufficient ?
As a modus operandi shall we start the Syncthing manually whenever there is something to send/receive, and then stop it after all transfers done ? Conversely IF the Syncthing.exe be left running, what is the safe procedure, after the person on the receiving side has (re)moved received files to some (non sync’d) folders on their machine, how to “tell” Syncthing (at both ends) to “forget” about the files ?
PLZ excuse the stupid extreme-newbie-ity ! For this use case we had been using “Gbridge” for years, that unfortunately relied on some now defunct piece of the Google infrastructure. TYIA & regards !
