OSX Client, Win8.1 server - mouse/keyboard input lost

3 posts in this topic

Having a frustrating issue since the latest version installation (v1.7.3) Randomly moving the mouse between the server and the clients - it will lose the mouse/keyboard input on the server screen entirely. The only keys that work are CTRL-ALT-DEL which brings mouse movement back, but keyboard inputs still ignored. The only solution is to hard-power-cycle the Windows server to regain control. Not even RDPing into the Windows server to "end task" on Synergy helps (can't click anywhere or use keyboard)

I'm having the same issue! I'm using 1.7.3 and can only recover the use of the mouse temporarily when selecting Ctrl + Alt + Del. If I kill the app I can regain the use of the mouse but if it approaches the edge of the screen it disappears entirely. This is very frustrating. I did try switching the server and the client but ended up with the same issue. Also, I'm running 8.1.1 on both my laptop, desktop, and surface. :x

I have this problem on Windows 7 running the server with OSX client. Server completely loses input, hard reset or patiently getting the Task Manager via CTRL + ALT+ DEL then try to move mouse to close Synergy process. This can take almost 10-15 minutes as the mouse only responds once every minute or so but it's the only way to preserve open files and windows. Both running 1.7.4. Happend about 3 times already.
