Starting from v5.4, Syncrify Client is available as a web-based application. There are several benefits of using a web interface:
Even though the interface is web-based, you launch it by clicking the icon for Syncrify Client. This will automatically open the default browser configured on your machine.

Following steps demonstrate how to launch Syncrify Client on a Linux machine without X-Windows.
/opt/SyncrifyClientand java is located in
jre/bin/java -jar Loader.jar -httpPort 12345Notice the additional argument
-httpPort 12345, which makes the web interface listen on port 12345. You can change this value to any number between 1024 and 40000.
This additional argument is not required. However, if missing, the web interface will start on a random port and will only be available on the localhost. Therefore, you will need this argument in order to access the interface from another machine. Additionally, when you specify this argument, the application will accept connections from hosts other than localhost.
~/.syncrify. However, when you run Syncrify Client service as root, the location of Data Folder becomes
/root/.syncrify. Therefore, it is important you explicitly specify the path for Data Folder whenever running the client. This is done by specifying an additional command line argument:
jre/bin/java -Dsyncrify.custom.home=/root/.syncrify -jar Loader.jar -httpPort 12345
