KNotes: undocumented "Send" option?


Hello,

I'm using KNotes(3.6) from KDE(3.5.9) on Debian Lenny/Sid(i386).
When I right-click a note there is an option "Send" apart of "Send via mail".
It appears that it allows to send a note to a specified host(ip).
Apparently a port required for this operation to complete is closed, because I get message like this: "The host is actively rejecting connection".

My questions are:
- is it possible to send a note to another host this way (i.e. not by e-mail),
- if so, is there any (server) software required on the host to receive knote, or just KDE PIM,
- does it have something in common with groupware functionalities of KDE PIM,
- does anyone have any experiences using this functionality?

I searched google and it seems this option is left undocumented (or I searched in wrong place, as I looked for KNotes documentation ).
I searched LQ for knotes, and found nothing, what answers this questions.

thanks in advance,

Lightbulb The solution

I've found an interesting article(unfortunately in german):

http://www.easylinux.de/Artikel/ausg...pps/index.html.

Simply:
- right-click knotes systray icon,
- choose "KNotes: Configuration...",
- click "Net" tab,
- choose "Accept incoming notes",
- enter desired "Sender id",
- accept.

You are ready to receive notes.
You don't need any other software than KNotes to send/receive notes.

Knotes will send the message to the other system if that system is also running knotes, and that system's knotes is configured to accept incoming notes. You can set it to accept in the system tray icon >> Configure KNotes >> Network tab.

Exactly!

Silly of me, that I missed this tab in the first place
Still I think, it is poorly documented.
I needed WireShark to find a port that KNotes sends to, then googled it up and found a solution

Thank you for your reply.
