Hi all. I’ve used (and read more than once the documentation of) the “Introducer” feature.
I’m sure I’m missing something but let me explain my doubts and maybe “nice to haves” about how an Introducer works.
I’ve just tested using v1.15.1, that when I create a share in my Introducer device A and then share it to two other devices B,C (which use A as introducer), the propagation of the sharing works as expected.
Let’s say C has been introduced to B by A. When I remove C in A, B also removes C, which is what I expect, but then C starts asking for connection to B, and if I grant that connection, it then asks for sharing the folder from which it’s been removed.
This is not what I’d expect. I’d expect that C stops asking anything to the “swarm” of devices that had that shared folder, I’d also expect C to align the sharing configuration on that folder (leading it to a “Not shared” state).
In other words, if an Introducer has shared a folder with C and introduced to it the involved devices, when that introducer removes C from that share (and/or even deletes C from known devices), C has to be recyprocal, just as it was when the introducer added it.
I hope I was clear enough in my explaination.
Thanks for any help / support. Cheers! Marco
