Cannot connect, can ping

7 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I recently purchased synergy and am trying to get it to work across two computers (one running Win 10, one running OpenSUSE Tumbleweed). I want the Linux computer to act as the server, and the Windows one as the client:

As can be seen, it just times out. I am able to ping one computer from another and vice versa. Can anyone help?

I realise the two machines are not connected to the same network (maybe the same issue faced by @Chrizz that @Paul Suarez was helping diagnose), but since this is a work network, there probably isn't much I can do about it.

Sorry for the late reply @nishank93. Have you turned the SSL off that's why it worked?

No, it just needed firewall exceptions for Synergy on both computers. I should have checked that before! Works flawlessly now.
