SyncThing configuration on Ubuntu server without GUI

What if you don’t have a gui on your ubuntu server? How do you configure SyncThing? Does it mean you will have to open public ip address port 8384 in order to configure it from a browser remotely?

Call the rest API running locally, modify the config by hand or as you said, configure from another machine that has a browser via ssh forwarding or exposing the port.

I do it like this.

Add this to your .ssh/config file:

LocalForward 9999 localhost:8384

Then while your ssh connection is open direct your browser to and you will reach the local syncthing gui on the server.
