Step #2 - Setup Folders for Syncing ♻️

Once inside SyncThing on your Seedbox, click "Add Remote Device" to add your local machine SyncThing instance.

Step #3 - Device ID 🆔

In order to add your local machine, you'll need to grab your Device ID

You can find your device ID by clicking on

Actions ⚙️ >> Show ID 🆔 >> Copy

Paste this ID in the Device ID section on the Seedbox SyncThing Add Remote Device menu. You can also give this device a unique name such as Local Device.

Step #4 - Sharing

Once you've added your Local Machine it's time to set up a folder to start syncing.

Let's assume that on your Seedbox you want to sync the folder /home/user/Downloads/complete

with your Local Machine folder


On your Seedbox SyncThing instance, click Add Folder to begin.

Here you can add a folder name and state the path to the folder.

  1. Add Folder Label - Movies

  2. Assign folder path - /home/user/Downloads/complete

  3. Set which device to sync this folder with - Local Machine

I don't know what to do next...
