I need help understanding how to use unison.  I have downloaded the latest stable version with a gui Unison-2.27.3 Gtk+.exe on two machines.  I am trying to connect to two machines using the socket method and have can't get one machine to recognize the other, I believe this is due to the fact that I haven't setup one of the machines to listen for to connection.  

My question is this, since the .exe files that I have downloaded are gui based - how can I get one machine to listen ( unison -socket NNN ).  What interface would I do this with  ?

You would use the command line interface.  If you downloaded the pre-built version from the site linked to from the Unison home then it should have both GUI and text versions.  Here's the link.

You would run the text version on the "server" side and either the text or GUI version on the client side.  Remember that direct Socket connections are insecure.  I would only do this over a VPN or with local machines.  Even then you want to make sure the server machine isn't seen by the outside world.
