TOTAL NOOB - web gui?

HI- New to the forums.

I am on linux mint and have been using it for about three months. I have installed syncthing via the software manager. I installed syncthing GTK, syncthing, syncthing discvr, syncthing replaysvr.

I can see some sycthing info via the syncthing taskbar icon. However, When I click on Syncthing Weg gui, I get ‘‘ can not connect’’ I see no web gui. My browser is Brave. I have forwarded port 22000 via my browser.

Sorry, but can anyone suggest any troubleshooting?

Many Thanks


You planning on hosting relay- or discovery servers? Probably not, no need to install that.

For syncthing-gtk I have no clue what exactly it does or how to debug (@kozec).

If you don’t actually need system integration (or for a qt based one check out, redo the setup without syncthing-gtk (for autostart see, which will soon be updated, see preview at

Port 22000 is not used for web ui, it’s used for the sync protocol. Web ui uses 8384

Thanks for the help guys.

Got the web ui working by starting the service- oh dear :slight_smile:

I have this up and running fine on my windows and android devices, its just linux has a bit of a learning curve for me.

Also it tuns out the Syncthing GTK shows everything that the web ui can display, so I use that now.

Thanks again
