May I apply syncthing for multi user?

I runing Syncthing on a Linux box which is a server for several users. Every user want to have their own repositories individually. May I config Syncthing to do that? How?

Each user should run their own instance, like usual.

Do you mean that it should be started every time user login, or manually?

Either would work. The user can also start their syncthing binary at boot by using something like this:

$ crontab -e
@reboot ~/bin/syncthing/syncthing &

Does every user login syncthing using the same port number?

The sync protocol port needs to be different, so does the gui port.

@calmh local discovery won’t work, will it?

Yeah, that’s a bit of a drag, unfortunately.

That is not as convenient as bt sync on windows, which only ask for opening its GUI.:frowning:

Syncthing allocates free ports on initial startup.

Ok, I will try then.
