Server IP on client Synergy configs not saving

5 posts in this topic

"Server IP" configured on the client Synergy settings not saving after I reboot the Mac.

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.

Have you already added Synergy as a log-in item on your Mac?

Scott B: are you entering the server name or the server IP?

I was having a similar problem. 

I have an Ubuntu system as my server, clients are Win7 and MacOS Sierra (10.12.6).

In the past I was able to save a server _name_ (as opposed to server IP) on my Mac, and this still works on my Win7 client.  However, on Mac I must now use the IP (not the server _name_).  Entering the server _name_ works fine in the session, but on reboot the server name has been forgotten.  

Once the server IP is entered and saved, it works fine.  Further attempts to save the server _name_ (rather than the server IP) fail, and only the server IP is ever retained.

I have the exact same issue 
(except using macOS High Sierra)
