For some reason I cannot get things working when the Linux box is the server and the macbook pro is the client. However I can get things working just fine in the inverse, unfortunately since the macbook is not the primary machine, and not powered on all the time, the later setup won't work.
Here is the error that I am getting:
It just hangs when trying to connect:
connecting to '10.0.1.4': 10.0.1.4:24800
The only firewall that I have is the one on the router, so since things work with the macbook as the server I am pretty sure that is not where the problem is.
Here is the .synergy.conf file
section: screens Chris-MacBook-Pro: # I have tried this with the .local as well chris-archlinux.local: end section: links Chris-MacBook-Pro: right = chris-archlinux.local chris-archlinux.local: left = Chris-MacBook-Pro.local end
** Update: I should also add that I can ping the linux machine from the mac. To try get things working, I have also prevented the hosts.deny/.allow files from blocking anything.
An ideas to where the problem could be?
