Hi there, I am using syncthing for a long time. I downloaded it from github in the beginning and it updated itself just fine.
Now I saw heavy upload traffic from syncthing to the adress “mc0.grin.hu”.
Does anyone know what that is? What it could be?
Thx 4 F1.
Public relays. https://relays.syncthing.net/
mc0.grin.hu resolves to 184.108.40.206 on my DNS. That’s a public relay which identifies itself as “Lifeforce WHQ”. You can disable relays (or host your own) if you don’t want them, but that potentially makes connecting more difficult.
Ok, thank you for that information. It uploaded with about 6mb/s for about 30-40 seconds which I thought was a bit much for relay or what ever info. But ok.
Relay acts as a proxy for all of your traffic as your device cannot connect directly.
I don’t think uploading a lot of data is the primary characteristic of a crypto miner, either.
