I don’t use SyncThing but I’ve been hosting a relay server at home as I have a fast Google Fiber connection I want to better utilize and already have a server running for other purposes. My question is how safe is it to run a relay server? If someone is sending potentially illegal content over SyncThing could that somehow impact me? I’m happy to continue running this relay to do a little good in the world but I want to make I’m not assuming some unneeded liability.
Also, more on a technical level, how safe is it to have the relay software on my network? Currently, I run it in a separate VM that I have isolated on a VLAN with no access to my personal network. So I don’t suspect there’s any concern. I just want to know what measures are being taken by the relay developers to prevent it being abused and creating an entry point into my network.
