Accelerated Port in Syncrify

In addition to HTTP(S), Syncrify can use a proprietary non-http port for transferring files. This protocol offers the following benefits over HTTP.

  • Significant performance benefits when transferring new files that do not exist on the destination server.
  • Built-in compression
  • Built-in encryption

Configuration Steps

  • Log in to the Syncrify web interface as the administrator
  • Click Configuration
  • Select the HTTP Configuration tab
  • Specify a value for Accelerated Port. A value of 0 will disable it
  • Save

Firewall Configuration

You will have to allow inbound traffic for this port on two firewalls:

  • Local firewall on the machine where Syncrify Server is running
  • Network firewall on the edge of your network.
  • Open TCP as well as UDP ports.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a mandatory port?
No. Using this port is optional but will give you a better performance.
What happens if the port is blocked from the client's end?
Syncrify is designed to use HTTP(S) if a client cannot communicate with the server using the accelerated port. No further action is required to make this happen.
When can I see the speed benefits?
The accelerated protocol is only used when transferring a new file. Additionally, you will see the most benefit when transferring many small files. For example, when transferring hundreds of new files in one folder.
