mauweb.net 4.0 is here!
New updated interface, also available for mobile devices.
Soon this version (3.0) of mauweb.net will stop being developed and monitored, it will be left to wander indefinitely in the internet to turn into whatever the automatic scripts within it turn it into, perhaps it will take a life of its own, leeching on mine obviously, perhaps it will just die out, perhaps people will continue to click on the ads just cause they are so appropriately targeted ;) , perhaps it will disappear tomorrow, perhaps it will be around forever and ever... the point is:
For new articles, pictures, animated gifs, games and more, visit the new version of mauweb.net. 01/06/13
Synergy setup

Ever wanted to control two computers with one mouse and one keyboard? Well, Synergy is the perfect answer for you. 

Well, it would be perfect anyways if it wasn't so hard to get it running, but once it works it's great!
The software does what it says, but the configuration may be a little tricky, and that not being enough, Windows Firewall is here to make your life difficult (they say safer.) Anyways, here's how it's done:

  • Install Synergy in both computers you want to use (the software is cross-platform, meaning it runs on PC, Mac, Linux.)
  • Follow this instructions on the official Synergy website link to configure your computers, once you're (roughly) done with it come back here. If you have succeeded, then there's no need for you to keep reading. Thanks for passing by. But if your computers still can't connect to each other, carry on reading.

Usually the problem lies somewhere in the Windows Firewall. We need to make sure Synergy is allowed through the firewall. 

On Windows 7, click the Start button, type in the search bar: Windows Firewall, click on the first search result "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security"On the left Click on "Inbound Rules" 

**You need to make sure there exist both TCP and UDP rules allowing synergys.exe and synergyc.exe**
This is how you check and add them if you don't have them:
Windows 7 Start button, type in search bar: Windows Firewall, click on the first search result "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security"
On the left Click on "Inbound Rules"
Look for existing rules for synergy.exe and synergyc.exe, you should have two for each, if you navigate to the right, you will see a column called "Protocol", one should have the "TCP" protocol selected, and the other one "UDP" protocol (for both synergy.exe and synergyc.exe).
**To create new rules:**
1. On the right Click on "New Rule..."
2. Select "Program" and click "Next >"
3. Click browse and navigate to the Synergy installation directory, select whatever .exe you're missing in the rules and click "Next >"
4. Check mark whatever applies to you (usually just "Private") and click "Next >"
give it a name (ie: synergys udp)
5. Now double click on the rule you just created.
6. Select the "Protocols and Ports" tab and change the "Protocol type" to TCP or UDP depending on what you're missing, click "OK"
***Voilá***
mauweb.net

 
Look through the list until you find the Synergy entries. In total you need to have 4 entries, 2 for synergyc.exe and 2 for synergys.exe, navigate to the right columns and find the "Protocol" column. 

You need to have:

Inbound Rules Profile Enabled Action Override Program Local Address Remote Adress Protocol Remote Port Allowed Users Allowed Computers
synergyc.exe Private Yes Allow No path to synergyc.exe Any Any UDP Any Any Any
synergyc.exe Private Yes Allow No path to synergyc.exe Any Any TCP Any Any Any
synergys.exe Private Yes Allow No path to synergysexe Any Any UDP Any Any Any
synergys.exe Private Yes Allow No path to synergys.exe Any Any TCP Any Any Any


Follow the instructions below if you're missing any of the rules and need to create them:

  1. On the right Click on "New Rule..."
  2. Select "Program" and click "Next >"
  3. Click browse and navigate to the Synergy installation directory, select whatever .exe you're missing in the rules and click "Next >"
  4. Check mark whatever applies to you (usually just "Private") and click "Next >"
  5. Give it a name (ie: synergys udp)
  6. Now double click on the rule you just created.
  7. Select the "Protocols and Ports" tab and change the "Protocol type" to TCP or UDP depending on what you're missing, click "OK"

Voilá!
It should just connect immediately, but if it hasn't still, try restarting Synergy.
