my setup:

+----------+ +----------+ +----------+
|  earth   | | jupiter  | | callisto |
|  suse    | | gentoo   | |  ubuntu  |
|  10.0    | | 2006.1   | |   6.06   |
+----------+ +----------+ +----------+

jupiter (gentoo) is acting as the synergy server – the other two are clients.

here is the client and server conf (synergy.conf) file:

section: screens
   callisto:
   jupiter:
   earth:
end
section: links
   callisto:
	left = earth
	right = jupiter
   jupiter:
	left = callisto
	right = earth
   earth:
	left = jupiter
	right = callisto
end
section: aliases
   callisto:
	10.0.0.1
   jupiter:
	10.0.0.2
   earth:
	10.0.0.3
end

all of them (except suse – working on it) are set to auto start as soon as the systems ask for usernames and passwd’s.

i am putting these up here as examples

next i will be putting up a 4 & 5 system configuration that involves two laptops, since the laptops are not always attached it will be interesting to see if there are many differences between these two setups.

it is nice not having an extra 2 keyboards and mice on my desk. leaves more room for the guiness.
