    Hello all, just noticed that synergy was included in Morphos and tried to get it running between my mos machine(mac mini g4) and my macbook pro. Since i need a keyboard attached on the mini in order to select the mos partition at start i launched the mini as server, and configured at the right the macbook. Problem is, that i launch synergyc from bash in macbook and it says connected, but cant really see anything happening. Is necessary to configure the screens one by one on a config file?. I have been reading into using it on linux boxes, but for morphos there are not much info.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Make sure names are right, so your macbook is set with a right ip address in Hosts, in MorphOS preferences. Same for macmini in hosts file on other systems.

    For MorphOS machine as a client:

    Basically, on MorphOS side you only need to provide a server address and client name. On server side you type your MorphOS client name, it's no different from other platforms.

    For MorphOS machine as a server:

    On server side type client name in a grid. On client side just type morphos machine name (or ip).

    Are you referring to a hosts file in morphos?. Is morphos using that as is done on a unix system?. Also i have checked the folder of synergy but cannot see config files, only a file called screens that states the position of the connected machines.

    hosts file is in envarc:net/hosts, can be edited via system preferences or text editor. Synergy (besides screens.txt) stores its settings in envarc:mui in IFF format and you can just use Synergy gui to setup.

    @Korni:

    I know all about IFF of course, I meant the Synergy-specific chunk(s). As I could then add interpretation of such chunk(s) to the Report+ utility.

    This is a standard MUI settings IFF file, there are no Synergy specific chunks there.

    I still got nothing to work here. On commandline from the macbook, it says is connected, but it do nothing as i move cursor trying to go off screen. Will keep trying with a different approach.

    You need to be a bit more specific if you expect us to help. Reading your posts it seems to me that you’re a bit confused. If you want to move your MacBook’s mouse to the MorphOS screen, then you have to run a server on the Mac and Synergyclient on MorphOS and make it connect to the Mac. As a rule of thumb, server is where the mouse/kb you’re using are connected.
