The Mac is client and the Windows 10 box is the server.

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.

Both connected via Wifi on the same network. Windows Firewall is off. The MacOS machine is 10.12.6 and the Windows is Windows 10 64-bit. 

Below is the shot of the server. I think this has something to do with the fact that SIMBL doesn't exist in MacOS Sierra.

Just downloaded Synergy today, so it's the latest version on both machines.

I removed the SIMBL plugin I had installed for something else, and I'm not getting that error anymore, but now I'm still getting connection issues. Interestingly enough, it works the reverse way, with the Windows box as the client, but I want the Windows box to be the server.

Change the screen name of your mac machine and remove the ".local" on it.

  1. Click Edit
  2. Click Settings
  3. Change the screen name
  4. Click OK
  5. Click Apply or Start

Nevermind, I figured it out. It was trying to connect to my VirtualBox Network IP, instead of my actual local IP. When I updated the IP address manually, it works! 

 

Thanks!

I see. Thanks for the update @Patrick Alexander. By the way, if you're connected to multiple network interfaces, you can also set the primary network interface where you want Synergy to search or to listen to for the machine(s) you want to have connection with.

  1. On Synergy's user interface, click Edit
  2. Click Settings
  3. Use the IP address of that machine where you want it to listen or look for the other machine, type it in the box next to Interface
  4. Click OK
  5. Click Apply or Start
