Windows 10 Server to Mac Client not connecting [SOLVED]

1 post in this topic

I'm trying to get synergy working between a Pc and a Mac.

 

I'm using auto-config, and all the default settings. It works perfectly with the mac as the server.

 

However, when the PC is the server and the mac as client, the PC first detects a zeroconf client, but then just sits there with no more log messages. Meanwhile, the mac client keeps "timing out" and never connects.

 

Things I've checked:

  • Windows Firewall is correctly configured to let synergy run - there are rules allowing TCP and UDP connections for the synergy executables
  • I've tried both 32 bit and 64 bit synergy versions
  • I've tried auto-config client, and also tried using the screen name and the IP address.
  • I've tried running with elevated permissions
  • I can PING each machine from the other using the terminal - we are connected to the same Wi-Fi network!

 

I have a Macbook (10.11) called Ian-Mac.local, on IP 192.168.56.1

I have a Windows 10 Laptop called Ian-PC on IP 192.168.0.6

 

Here's the debug-level log from the PC:

I found a solution - for some reason, the windows PC listed 5 different IP addresses - I tried all of them on the client Server IP (previously I just used the one in bold). The last one actually worked!
