I recently switched distros to fedora (was looking for the most recent version of eclipse being supported, something I wasn't getting from Debian), and in trying to get synergy set up again, I've been having an issue where my synergy server is refusing the connection from my macbook.
My synergy.conf file:
section: screens client1: server: end section: aliases client1: macname server: linuxname end section: links client1: left = server server: right= client1 end
My synergys command:
synergys -f -c /path/to/synergy.conf
My synergyc command:
synergyc -f linuxname
Both computers can ping each other, and on the linux computer I've used
telnet localhost 24800
which confirms that synergys is running (also ps -Af | grep synergys).
On the mac, when I try to do
telnet linuxname 24800
I get the message
telnet: connect to address ip.of.linux.box: Connection refused telnet: Unable to connect to remote host $ sudo netstat -pant | grep 24800 tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:24800 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 22727/synergys
Both versions of Synergy report themselves as 1.3.7, protocol 1.3 .
I'm at a loss. Anyone got a bright idea or two?
