When I try to start Synergy on my Kubuntu 5.10 machine, I am confronted with this:

dotancohen@ety:~$ synergys -f --config /home/dotancohen/synergy.conf
INFO: synergys.cpp,857: Synergy server 1.2.2 on Linux 2.6.12-10-386 #1 Fri Apr 28 13:13:44 UTC 2006 i686

That text keeps repeating. My synergy.conf file looks like this:

section: screens
ety:
192.168.123.110:
end
section: links
ety:
right = 192.168.123.110
192.168.123.110:
left = ety
end


Where ety is the linbox and the IP is the address of the winbox. What am I doing wrong?

Other details: I need the keyboard and mouse of the linbox to control the winbox. I have installed synergy to the winbox, of course. It installed fine, but when I start it I get this:

WARNING: failed to connect to server: The attempt to connect was forcefully rejected

Thanks in advance.

Haven't used Synergy, but Sourceforge's Synergy User Guide [synergy2.sourceforge.net] might offer a start to a solution.

Step # 5 on that page shows some error messages, and the "Address already in use" and "The attempt to connect was forcefully rejected" point to a port issue. Can't offer much more information than that, but maybe it'll get you in the right direction.

Thanks, I went through that page alright! Despite the error, I know that it was not running. So, I rebooted. I got this on the linbox ("ety"):

dotancohen@ety:~$ synergys -f --config synergy.conf
INFO: synergys.cpp,857: Synergy server 1.2.2 on Linux 2.6.12-10-386 #1 Fri Apr 28 13:13:44 UTC 2006 i686
DEBUG: synergys.cpp,866: opening configuration "synergy.conf"
DEBUG: synergys.cpp,877: configuration read successfully
DEBUG: CXWindowsScreen.cpp,629: XOpenDisplay(":0.0")
DEBUG: CXWindowsScreenSaver.cpp,338: xscreensaver window: 0x00000000

DEBUG: CScreen.cpp,38: opened display
NOTE: synergys.cpp,356: started server
INFO: CServer.cpp,946: screen "ety" shape changed

However, when I start the winbox, I get this:
connection forcefully rejected

So, I must either be on the wrong port, or have the linbox firewalled. I've no firewall on the linbox, so far as I know. At least, Kubuntu doesn't come with one and I've never installed one. And the linbox's config I changed no ports.

How can I check what dameons are listening on what ports? Google just came up with game ports, and port athorities. Any other ideas?

Thanks.
