Grab Syncthing Binary and upload to DS215j

Follow instructions on the Syncthing Security Page to download and verify release

  1. Get the latest Syncthing release from their Releases Page
curl -sLO https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/releases/download/v0.12.19/sha256sum.txt.asc
curl -sLO https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/releases/download/v0.12.19/syncthing-linux-arm-v0.12.19.tar.gz
  1. Verify that the SHA256 checksum is correct for the release. You should see the same output as below. If not, try downloading again later, you’ve got a file that doesn’t match the released checksum.
$ sha256sum -c sha256sum.txt.asc 2>/dev/null  | grep syncthing-linux-arm-v0.12.19.tar.gz 
syncthing-linux-arm-v0.12.19.tar.gz: OK
  1. Import the release keys (only necessary if you haven’t done this previously).
