my PC (Linux/Lubuntu 18.04) and laptop (Linux/Lubuntu 20.04) are on the same network. I would like to use the keyboard and mouse of the PC also for the laptop - when both devices are running of course. For this I was hoping use the the programme “barrier” - version 2.3.2 - (which works just like “synergy”).
I set up and configured “barrier” on both devices but I couldn´t get it to work.
A first error(?) occurred when I wanted to configure barrier on the PC (server). The field after “SSL Fingerprint” remained empty. No idea why that is.
Nevertheless I tried to start barrier. I thought it wouldn´t work but the server said it was running!
Well, after that turned to to the client side.
Barrier definitely didn´t work here.
If I start it “Barrier is starting” is displayed below, but not “Barrier is running” (as it probably should).
If I send pings, both from the server and from the client, the other device in the network can be addressed with “0% packet loss” however.
So theoretically there shouldn´t be any problems as far as reachability within the network is concerned.
I already posted my problem here: https://github.com/debauchee/barrier/issues/780#issuecomment-654745041 but haven´t received an answer so far.
Yet there´s another user who seemed to experience the exact same problem as I do.
Can anybody venture a guess as to what´s going on?
Thanks a lot in advance.
