OS X Client won't connect to Windows 10 Host

2 posts in this topic

Synergy shows on Windows 10 that "Synergy is running." so I am guessing everything there is fine. When I try to connect a MacBook running 10.10 Yosemite It says "WARNING: failed to connect to server: cannot connect socket: Host is down". I made sure that Windows Firewall is set to enable Synergy on both public and private networks, not sure what else to do.

Could you double check you're connecting to the right IP, and perhaps temporarily disable your Windows firewall?

I just tried it with Windows Firewall off and it worked. Then I stopped Synergy on both computers, turned Windows Firewall on, and started Synergy again, and everything worked fine. Not sure why it did not want to work before. Thanks!
