Security issue or bug?

I’ve just set up Syncthing on my laptop. One of my devices is a server running in the cloud.

On my desktop, the server is identified with the correct IP address but on the laptop shows a different IP address (and different port address) which belongs to a different server in a different country with a different VPS supplier.

The only difference between the machines is that the laptop is WiFi only whereas my desktop is by Ethernet cable. Both machines are set to dynamic addressing.

Have I discovered a bug/been hacked/…???

Concerned :slight_smile:

Relay, most likely.

Thank you - that’s exactly what it is.

Amazing what you learn everyday about this wonderful product - I had no idea there were relay servers out there.

Just for reference: https://docs.syncthing.net/users/relaying.html, https://relays.syncthing.net/
