Configuration file


The Sync IT Client configuration file is a JSON formatted file, pre-generated by the Management Server. After downloading the file from the Server, admins need at least adjust the “host” value to force the client to connect to correct IP and port. Please see the table below for the list of config parameters in the “management_server” section:

Field

Default value

Purpose

disable_cert_check

false

Setting to true will prevent client to check server’s certificate fingerprint

cert_authority_fingerprint

depends on certificate

Server certificate fingerprint (one configured in peerServer -> tls section in Management Server config file)

host

0.0.0.0:8444

IP:port pair where client will attempt to connect. 0.0.0.0 should be replaced with a real IP!

bootstrap_token

random

pre-generated authentication token. Used by server to authenticate client init

 

The folders_storage_path value is not included in any section. You can use it to configure where Sync should create folders when they arrive from the Management Server. The %DOWNLOADS% default value points to different locations depending on your OS and user running Sync IT client. More information can be found in the path macros article.
