Just installed on debian 10 - no gui

I just installed Syncthing on Debian 10 and in ssh command line typed syncthing

It looked like it was about to start up but stopped after joining a relay. The Gui never launched.

This is a remote VPS on Vultr.

[OUUOG] 02:04:24 INFO: GUI and API listening on
[OUUOG] 02:04:24 INFO: Access the GUI via the following URL:
[OUUOG] 02:04:24 INFO: My name is "backupserver"
[OUUOG] 02:04:24 WARNING: Syncthing should not run as a privileged or system user. Please consider using a normal user account.
[OUUOG] 02:04:34 INFO: Detected 0 NAT services
[OUUOG] 02:05:02 INFO: Joined relay relay://

There’s no indication that it stopped. It’s listening on localhost, so unless you forward that port you wont be able to access the UI from another system. You’d need to change the listening address and setup the GUI then.

As soon as you log out, that will not run anymore. Use a service manager if you want to run it consistently.

Would you help me with the port forwarding?

I host syncthing on a remote server at Vultr.

I am trying to access from a web browser on a windows computer remotely

I am using ufw on Debian 10

Not sure how to forward

Any help would be greatly appreciated



How do I change the listening port from to

I already set up ufw for the firewall - How do I access the gui from http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8384?
