What port is syncthing?

The default port number is 8384. It’s traditional for custom HTTP services to live somewhere in the 8xxx-series and it’s an unusual enough port that it’s usually free. Syncthing will however choose another, random, port if port 8384 is taken by something else at the time of installation.

Is syncthing safe?

Syncthing is a secure decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) file synchronization program that can sync files between devices on a local network or over the internet. In many ways, it is similar to BitTorrent Sync, except that it is completely free and open source (FOSS).

What protocol does syncthing use?

free Block Exchange Protocol
Syncthing is an open-source file synchronization client/server application, written in Go, implementing its own, equally free Block Exchange Protocol. All transit communications between syncthing nodes are encrypted using TLS, and all nodes are uniquely identified with cryptographic certificates.

Does syncthing work over LAN?

Syncthing is a free, open-source peer-to-peer file synchronization application available for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Solaris, Darwin, and BSD. It can sync files between devices on a local network, or between remote devices over the Internet.

Does Syncthing use TCP or UDP?

Local Firewall Port 22000/TCP: TCP based sync protocol traffic. Port 22000/UDP: QUIC based sync protocol traffic. Port 21027/UDP: for discovery broadcasts on IPv4 and multicasts on IPv6.

How do I connect to Syncthing?

Here’s how you install the app on an Android device:

  1. Open up the Google Play Store on your device.
  2. Search for Syncthing.
  3. Locate and tap the entry by Felix Ableitner.
  4. Tap Install.
  5. Read the permissions listing carefully.
  6. If the permissions listing is acceptable, tap Accept.
  7. Allow the installation to complete.

How well does Syncthing work?

Syncthing works off of a peer-to-peer architecture rather than a client-server architecture. Computers attached to your Syncthing network each retain copies of the files in your shared folders and push new content and changes to each other through peer-to-peer connections.

Is Syncthing end to end encrypted?

SyncThing does support end-to-end encryption, and has for a while: https://docs.syncthing.net/users/security.html#sync-connecti… For example, the idea of deploying one or more SyncThing instances to cloud providers that would never see your unencrypted data.

Is Syncthing real time?

Syncthing is a continuous file synchronization program. It synchronizes files between two or more computers in real time, safely protected from prying eyes.

Is Syncthing a backup?

Syncthing was not designed to be a backup. For a lot of people it doesn’t have the features by itself to do that. It can however be part of your backup solution.

Does Syncthing use data?

Syncthing is a continuous file synchronization program. It synchronizes files between two or more computers in real time, safely protected from prying eyes. Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, whether it is shared with some third party, and how it’s transmitted over the internet.

Does Syncthing require port forwarding?

The external forwarded ports and the internal destination ports have to be the same (e.g. 22000/TCP). Communication in Syncthing works both ways. In the absence of port forwarding, Relaying may work well enough to get devices connected and synced, but will perform poorly in comparison to a direct connection.
