I run it over Airport. I've done it between a Mac and a Windows machine, and between two Macs. If you downloaded the regular Synergy, which is command-line only on a Mac. Check out QuickSynergy linked above. I hadn't seen that before.Kingsly said:I downloaded, but cant get it to work. Do I have to drop a firewall or something? I am trying over AP, do I need to run ethernet?
Not working!sunfast said:In my setup the iMac is the slave to the MacBook. Both are connected to the same wireless router.
On the MacBook I type "tims-imac.local" into the "left" box on the "client" page and click start.
Then on the iMac I type "tims-macbook.local" into the "server" page and click start. And then we're off!
Could it be a firewall problem? I've got TCP port 24800 open on my firewall for Synergy. I don't remember if I did that because it was necessary, but I suppose there's a good chance I did.Kingsly said:Not working!
I have the eMac, emac.local and my MBP, duncans-macbook-pro.local as the server.
I see the computers in the network folder of my finder, though.
Wierdness... the eMac can control my MBP, but not the other way around!mduser63 said:Could it be a firewall problem? I've got TCP port 24800 open on my firewall for Synergy. I don't remember if I did that because it was necessary, but I suppose there's a good chance I did.
Well, i had this same problem after seeing this thread. I could get my iBook to be the server but not the iMac. Well I shut everything down and restart both computers. This seems to have worked. I can now use the mouse and keyboard on my imac with my iBook. It really is nice. It is almost like having to monitors.Kingsly said:Wierdness... the eMac can control my MBP, but not the other way around!
Perhaps I should try the command line version?
