QNAP - Need to return to previous version

Since the upgrade to 1.8.0, some of my QNAP clients are not talking to my QNAP server anymore. Before speculating, that maybe is a specific problem that I have with 1.8.0, I would like to revert my QNAP client to 1.71. I have disabled the update function, stopped the service, replace the syncthing file by the 1.71 one and restarted the service.

Still loading 1.8.0.

What am I missing?

Thanks for any hint.



You probably replaced the wrong binary, or the syncthing file is not actually the binary but some script that launches the binary.

Hey Audrius,

I took this one: https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/releases/download/v1.7.1/syncthing-linux-amd64-v1.7.1.tar.gz

Extract the syncthing file (about 25-26mb)

replace the one on my QNAP server on: /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/SyncThing/

No error, replace is completed.

Do I need to replace some other files elsewhere?

Thanks again!


I have no idea, we don’t manage the QNAP packages, you are best asking on their forums.

Hi, could that be because of the address dial binding problem described in the other thread? I’m also operating a qnap and tied all services to one interface (but have multiple network uplinks). With one interface, there isn’t any problem.

Hi, can you point me to the thread related ?

Also, I did not have this problem with 1.71. I try to revert back, but cannot find a way to downgrade on my QNAP

Thanks a lot!
