Multi-machine cluster (Syncthing) / Cross ARK

If you're looking to use multiple machines, you need to setup a few things to share your cluster among all your machines.
This requires installing Syncthing, which is quite easy to install. 

You can install Syncthing on your Linux machine via the machine overview page. Hit the dropdown on the "Install game server" button and click Syncthing.
After Syncthing is done installing, you can find the URL and login credentials for Syncthing on the settings page for the service.

Syncthing is automatically installed on all Windows machines. To access Syncthing you need to login on your Windows machine and open an internet browser. Next in the browser navigate to: Notice! This link will only work on your machine.
