3 posts in this topic

Hello, im a french guy who dont speak that good in english but i will do my best! I heard about your wonderfull software and I just bought it. I have two computers, a gaming Pc and a laptop for my college stuff. I installed the software on the two computers, the gaming pc is the server and the laptop is the client. Everything seems fine on the server but on the client, when i hit the "Auto config" check, Synergy is asking me to install "Bonjour" and dont respond when there is writen "Installing Bonjour, please wait...". I tried to connect the laptop with the Ip writen on the server but on the server consolle there is writen :

[2017-05-08T16:41:22] NOTE: accepted client connection

[2017-05-08T16:41:22] WARNING: unrecognised client name "LucasPEY-PC", check server config

[2017-05-08T16:41:22] NOTE: disconnecting client "LucasPEY-PC"

[2017-05-08T16:41:22] NOTE: client "LucasPEY-PC" has disconnected

 

On the client there is writen :  

[2017-05-08T16:56:25] ERROR: failed to launch, error: process immediately stopped
[2017-05-08T16:56:25] INFO: backing off, wait=6s, failures=3

Ok, im a huuuuge idiot, I didnt understood the idea of naming the screen of the client the same name on the server! Its working perfectly and I will recomend this software, thank you.
