[Serusers] SER installation, allows signin, but can't see any one else

That worked, however, SER doesn't answer any sign-ins.  There has to
something very easy here where a person signed-in isn't seeing anyone else
signed in.  Any thoughts?

If you are starting ser at boot, don't set dont_fork=1 in the cfg. file.
This will stop ser from becoming a daemon and detaching and it will block
your booting process (on most distributions).
dont_fork is only for debugging, which means manually starting ser, from
a terminal.
