First, thanks for reviewing this. As rinputd logged, it is trying to broadcast
using multicast dns. I am not sure exactly why it's not working for you, but
it's most likely a network configration issue. I'm using the standard Avahi
library for mDNS, so I doubt it's an issue with rinputd. You can also specify
the ip address in Remotux instead of using mDNS.

As for rinputd running after ctrl-c, it runs as a daemon by default now. This
means it forks to the background when it starts, relinquishing foreground
control back to the shell. I'm guessing it went back to the shell when you ran
it, and you hit ctrl-c, which is like a noop in the shell. You can run rinputd
in the foreground using the -f switch if that's what you prefer.
