Issues with copying and pasting

21 posts in this topic

I was under the impression that the software was able to copy and paste files and folders from one computer to another one. In my case, just starting working with Symless, the software doesn't allow me to copy and paste files or folders from one computer to another one

Do you see any errors on the logs when you try to paste something?

No, I select one file in one computer, use Ctrl+C to copy it (I've done it as well with right click Copy), move the mouse over the other computer, and use Ctrl+V to paste the file. But it does not do anything.

Are you pasting it on a specific path? Have you tried pasting it on the desktop first? Also, try to paste it on a different path on the same computer where you have copied it. Just to make sure that the machine itself did recognize the copy command.

All that checked:
File in folder copied from folder to client's desktop (therefore, the computer recognize the copy command)
File in desktop copied

Mouse pointer moved to Server's desktop (Log just reports leaving and entering one screen and another)

Pasting command not working (so file wasn't transferred from one computer to another)

(in the opposite way it's the same, not files transferred either way)

Hi @JuanF. Please set both machine's logging level to Debug1 and send us a copy of the logs showing what it does when you try to copy and paste or doing a drag and drop. Thanks :)

I also have problems with copy/paste files no matter what I do files will not transfer between client and server. I also have problems with clipboard text. After a while it just stops working and I need start the Synergy window, click Apply to let it restart and clipboard will work again.

Are you using Windows machines in both server and client?

I tried drag and drop and i see at taskbar a drag and drop thing flashes by but nothing happens.

if i right click copy on file and move to other machine paste will be greyed out.

 

 

clipboard problem hasn't happened yet after I applied the Debug setting so I'll see if it happens again.

I'll forward this to our developers for them to check. Please bear with us as we try to make Synergy better for everyone. If you'd need to add more logs please use GitHubGist.

I've had this same issue for a very long time. Both client and server are Windows 10, and running 64-bit version.

Please create a different thread @Doug Dimick. Make sure to include detailed information for your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server).

Hi @JuanF. Can you try these steps from @Blonger?

On 6/22/2017 at 3:39 AM, Blonger said:

Hello there,

greetings from Germany.
I found a Solutions that worked for me and my friends(different plattforms Win 7 to 10 and 8 so 8.1 Mac.....)
We just changed the log from info to debug 1 on server and on the client(`s).
[Also try to disable SSL Encryption]
We reload the config on both an it worked just fine.
By Drag and Drop as well ass strg-c / -v.
I were able to change the log output to back to info and it still works.
For me this is a strange error, because effectivly i did nothing by it seems that something in the backend happend.....

Hope that this will Help.

Bye Blonger

Hello @Paul Suarez,

I tried this method, and it now let me connect the PCs. However, turning back on the SSL encryption caused the connection to fail. 
By turning it off and back on without the SSL encryption it worked again.

Can you post your server configuration here @JuanF? I'll try to check if there's something wrong with the configuration.
