Using Syncthing for years now and well I don’t ask often things here because it just works.
So I am almost glad to ask for some help today
Here is a « new » situation for me.
One computer ( running Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 ) and 3 users, A, B, C
Those users don’t share folders through SyncThing with each others.
But each one of this user share folders with other computers - so they all have their own
For user C, no problem : each time he launches web UI, it leads to 127.0.0.1:37243 For user A and B, problem : for both users, web UI leads to 127.0.0.1:8384 therefore if session for A is already open with active Syncthing, B will see A’s Syncthing shares and not his owns ( and vice-versa, depending of who first opened a session ).
This also means it’s ok as long as only one user out of A and B is logged in to his session.
But as you guess, we need to be able to switch from A, B or C seamlessly.
I’ve checked this
but it works exactly the same, with or without
So I wonder how / where I may assign a different address for each user, as mentioned in help . Do I only need to change that port « manually » for each user ? And only once ? Any downsides ? How do I check « availability » of ports ?
The strange thing here is I have other computers with « multi-users » ( *buntu and windows ) but on these, webUI may lead for one user to …:8384 but all other users are led to something else like …:37XXY
So I guess I forget something during first configuration of Syncthing… Or maybe it’s related to some of these shares being many years old and some other recent, later added ?
I also read some lines about SyncThing as a service in systemd but am not at all « educated » about those…
So, any suggestions and highlights very welcome. I have permanent physical access to that machine so if you need some logs or commands outputs, let me know.
