SyncThing+ZFS is great!

Hi all,

Just had a play with SyncThing on the weekend as another option for offsite backups with minimal fuss.



There's even a nice macOS app that includes the binary and has a GUI that sits in the menu bar.

What I like about SyncThing is that it doesn't require you to manually punch a whole through your router and forward ports.

I'd luv OpenZFS to look at incorporating this feature (of no port punching) into zfs snd/recv.

Good stuff!

zfs send/recv does generally not deal with the transport protocol, it assumes you will figure that out, be it netcat, ssh, nfs etc. Of course those tools, like ssh, could be enhanced to use UPNP to open incoming accepting ports, so you don't "have to do anything" - that would be quite easy to add, but I think there are already tools for it.
