A couple of weeks ago I figured out how to turn off encryption and all is well on this front.

I think I have the same problem. When I have SSL encryption turned on, everything fails. My clients connect to the server, but as soon as the I try to move my mouse off the server synergy crashes on the client side.

I'd really prefer to have encryption running.

This is on Windows 10 (64bit)

Thanks for your good work.

A similar situation
Win 10 server running Synergy 1.7.4
Win 8.1 client using same Synergy; client has high resolution screen obliging me to use large text size (250%)

once PCs sync, mouse disappears on client screen and stays there, cannot get control of server back unless I kill synergy with task manager on client side using local mouse.
I've tried suggestion to change properties of synergy.exe (Click the checkbox for "Deactivate scaling for high DPI value") but no change. I can't use standard 100% text size because letters are the size of fly droppings.
I can't use synergy any more.
any suggestions would be welcome

Almost same issue with Windows 10 server and Windows 7 client. I don't need to re-start synergy, ctl-alt-del alone restores the mouse pointer to the server. When the mouse pointer is "on" the client I _can_ use the keyboard but I _cannot_ see the pointer. I think that the mouse control is there, I just can't see where the mouse is pointing. Any help would be appreciated.

Running Synergy for the first time since yesterday (v 1.75)
Installing went OK, but I noticed that when I close my Macs, and start them up the next day, Synergy doesn't start up by itself.

After manually starting up Synergy, it runs like a charm.
Isn't there an autostart feature in Synergy? (or should I manually ad Synergy to the Mac OS System Preference ('Login Items').

Did I miss something??

Cheers, great product!!!! Happy user
