Questions:

  1. How do I test that port 24800 (or whatever it is) is open or closed ? (I have ZoneAlarm).

  2. How do I test if the server/client is "listening" on the correct IP addresses?

    (refer to my suggestion - more logging - http://sourceforge.net/projects/synergy2/forums/forum/199580/topic/4442168)

  3. How do I test if my IP addresses are actually running the Synergy program?

nestat -a is the command your looking for to see if the windows machine is listening on port 24800 (you should probably find out exactly which port needs to be open). –  Kyle Apr 11 '11 at 14:32

1 Answer 1

telnet to the port to see if it's open. You will get a Synergy+ message.

the command is:

telnet hostname 24800

This works on both Linux and Windows if you have Windows' telnet client installed.

my synergy IS using port 24800. Is there a way to tell if the client can "see" the server (or other way round ?) –  Sarah Apr 12 '11 at 7:14
    
If you can ping each computer from the other, they can see each other. If you run "telnet servername 24800" from the client and it pops up with a prompt saying "Conected to... Synergy" or something similar, it means the client can connect to the server on port 24800 and that port is running Synergy. –  Joshua Nurczyk Apr 12 '11 at 11:38
