This error is usually due to a typo on adding machine's screen name on Server Configuration interface or if you haven't been able to add your client's screen name on that Server Configuration interface at all. Please click on Configure server.. on your server machine and add the client's screen name.

You can refer to Getting started with Synergy knowledge base article for steps on how to do an initial configuration which includes adding the screen names.
