I installed synergy. I ran it on mac OS X mavericks 10.9.4. When I open synergy on the mac a window pops up quickly and disappears. Then, I connect from my windows workstation and get an error:
NOTE: connecting to 'x.y.z.a': x.y.z.a:24800 INFO: crypto mode: cfb ERROR: server refused client with name "pcName" WARNING: failed to connect to server: server refused client with our name
- How can I tell if synergy is running on Mac OS X?
- I tried Terminal > netstat -an . There are 100's of lines. I see one that says:
Local Address: *.24800 Foreign Address *.* state: LISTEN
What causes this error?
I saw a troubleshooting link on the synergy site. I'm running the default configuration on both ends. "Unknown screen name XXX" (referred to by this error) seems to apply to people doing oddball stuff.
I tried to telnet into x.y.z.a 24800 and it appears to have worked. I see encrypted jibber jabber on the command prompt.
