Here are screen shot (mail-Syncthing) of the server based (web).It shows which folders are used from the local folder(server based) and desktop remote folder (linuxmintsyncthing)
Folders are assigned for each one.
When the two were connected, it is NOT because I added it, it is because syncthing on the server detected the desktop csyncthing and asked me to add it.
The folders(it grabbed the folder name when asI are shared, but when I look at the “remote” folder, I was unable to find a place where the folder IDs are noted. I looked in the remote section and pressed edit to see the connection details. No sign of an folder ID is noted.
I did go through this as I tried setting things up.
One thing that i have not got clear yet.
If I set it up on the server, do I even need to set it up on the desktop as well? I would think that only one is needed, as it should appear automatically on the other showing that th econnection is made for both.
I would just like to add that Syncthing itself is not a full/proper backup solution. If the “server” sends a corrupted file, the other side will happily receive it. You could use versioning to mitigate the risk, but that would still be relying on only one tool for everything, which I would not personally do. If you have other backups in place too, then feel free to ignore this post.
