I've never actually been able to get Synergy working, even when using QuickSynergy. Even using this guide gives me nothing; my mouse won't leave the edge of my screen. I've even disabled both computers'
ufw firewalls to make sure ports aren't being blocked. What am I doing wrong?
work-macbook, host computer:
[Share] Left=work-laptop [Use] Hostname= ClientName= [Settings] SynergyPath=/usr/bin
work-laptop, slave computer:
[Use] Hostname=work-macbook ClientName=work-macbook [Settings] SynergyPath=/usr/bin
Pinging work-macbook from work-laptop works, and pinging work-laptop from work-macbook works. Things are basically working with host-names to IP addresses on my network, so that doesn't seem like the issue:
work-macbook $ ping work-laptop 64 bytes from work-laptop (192.168.1.2) work-laptop $ ping work-macbook 64 bytes from work-macbook (192.168.1.49)
