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.

I just upgraded my MAC to Sierra this weekend and Synergy will not go between my MAC and windows. They both connect nicely, but the cursor will not go past the edge of my MAC screen. I'm connected via wire.

On my MAC, I see:

NOTE: accepted client connection

[2017-09-18T05:25:37] NOTE: client "TABOUL-BERGSGA" has connected

[2017-09-18T05:25:42] WARNING: unknown quartz event type: 0x1e

The last line is repeated

I have the same issue. I had Synergy running between two Macs. One Mac died so I replaced with with an Ubuntu box and changed the config file accordingly. It says "accepted client connection", but the cursor won't move to the other screen.

Here's my configuration as requested above

Server: Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit, synergy 1.8.8-stable-debian, connected via Ethernet
Client: MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra), synergy 1.8.8-stable-c30301e, also connected via Ethernet
server screenshot attached
