Note

A new shared folder syncthing-data will have been created during installation. This shared folder holds configuration and database information that is essential for Syncthing. Do not remove or tamper with it.

Warning

Syncthing will by default be available on port 8384 without authentication. It’s essential that you visit the Syncthing GUI and set up authentication in order to protect the integrity of your NAS.
