Extremely slow mouse/keyboard response on macOS Sierra client

14 posts in this topic

I'm having extremely slow mouse and keyboard response on macOS Sierra v10.12.5 using Windows 7 desktop as server. I'm connected via cat 5 through LAN. This is making my MacBook client unusable when connected.

Hi @Scott B. 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).

SERVER - Windows 7 v10.12.5 64bit OS - running V1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2 Synergy

CLIENT - macOS Sierra - running v1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2 Synergy

both connected via Ethernet to same LAN segment.  I tested and changed out Ethernet cables to rule out connectivity issues. I also have an issue with the "Server IP" configured on the client Synergy settings not saving after I reboot the Mac.

Your client machine shows an unknown IP address. Are you using VPN or a third party firewall on that machine?

I'm not sure what you're saying? I input the server's IP address (10.217.159.65) manually into that field. Each workstation is directly connected to the same LAN, no VPN or firewalls.

I see. Then please check on your client machine since it showing "Unknown" on the IP address. You can stop and close Synergy on your client machine and try to unplug and plugging back the Ethernet cable for that machine. After plugging it back in, re-launch Synergy and check if it gains a valid IP address.
