Just purchased Synergy - doesn't work

Postby Bryce Raffle » Mon Nov 07, 2016 6:38 pm

Just installed Synergy on Windows 7 & Mac OSX 10.9.5
It installed with seemingly no problems on both machines, but it doesn't actually seem to be working. I've set up the Mac to be the Server and Windows to be the client. I'm using the auto config option. After running Synergy, the client does not connect. The log shows "Warning: failed to connect to server: Timed out." I've tried stopping and starting the client dozens of times, but it does not work. Any ideas? This seems like a great program, but it's no use to me if it doesn't actually work.

I have the same problem. Download and installed no problem on a Mac and a Linux machine, Mac as server. Then I tried to connect, the server "cannot read" and the client failed to connect to server: Connection refused.
