Cant ping server from client, but synergy works, why?

4 posts in this topic

My server is win 10, and my client is Mac 10.13. I can ping client from the server, but can't ping server from the client. The most strange thing is that the synergy works. So it doesn't matter that client can't ping server side?

Windows tends to disable ICMP request responses by default in the firewall, so if you might be able to maintain an active connection but you can't ping windows because it's rejecting the pings at the firewall.

You are right!I just turn off the firewall, and it's works! Thank you.
