Hi @Jon Olson. Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

For client machines, it'll be normal for them to be on "synergy is starting" state if they are still trying to connect. I noticed that the network which both machines are on is 172.26.x.x. Is that a work network? Is it through Ethernet or Wi-Fi?

Yes its our Corp LAN, off the same switch on the same VLAN and able to ping.

 

This issue started when I upgraded to the latest version of synergy and macOS

 That build works, synergy starts on the mac. I do notice after my PC goes to sleep I am unable to "click" on anything on my mac, I have to stop/start on the server (my PC) and then can click aroudn in the mac

That is due to Mac's system not allowing Synergy to run after sleeping, hence re-connection doesn't take place. Do you have a lock screen when it boots back from sleep?

How can I fix that?? Yeah and use MacID to unlock it using proximity from my iPhone

And when you unlock it, does Synergy reconnect automatically?

  3. Set Elevate to Always
  4. Click OK
  5. Click Apply or Start

Before your Windows machine goes to sleep, do you have Synergy opened (not necessarily be the active application/in-front)? or you have closed it by clicking the x button?

Do you use Teamviewer Quick Connect to control other machines? or for others to control your machines?
