How To Remove Peers Access?

Recommended Posts

You can't because they have the key after the approval process. You can switch the secret on any other peer, but this might not be what you want.


I think that there is a lot misunderstanding/misconception of what the peer approval is doing: it's not an access list, it just protects the exchange of the RW or RO-secret. Once a peer knows the secret, it can share it and anyone who directly enters a secret doesn't go through the approval process.

After peers have been approved, how do you go about revoking peers access?


The simplest way is to change the folder's key (secret). This will then automatically disconnect all other peers. There is presently no way to "revoke access" to an individual peer, although this has been previously mentioned in the Feature Request forum.
