Must Restart Synergy Services Each Time

11 posts in this topic

With 2.0.0.-beta4, each time I want to use Synergy, I have to run 'services.MSC' and restart Synergy services.  It is not necessary to disable my firewall but it is necessary to restart Synergy services each time!  Very inconvenient!

That is similar to what I am seeing ... must restart on both systems (Linux, Windows10) to get it to work.

I have the same problem.

3 Windows 10 machines.

Every time I boot one of my machines >synergy-service-controller.exe< is running, but not >synergyd.exe< ... es of task-manager.

After restarting Synergy through Services.MSC >synergyd.exe< starts.

Yep, me too. Windows services always need a restart after a fresh boot.

I've had a somewhat similar experience. 2 Windows machines. And everytime I boot to Windows. I have to disable the Firewall on both, restart the Synergy 2 service and then restart the Synergy 2. I've since reverted back to Synergy 1.9 where I don't have to jumps through as many hoops to get Synergy to work.

Not to seem like a downed. I am sincerly rooting for the final version to be flawless and I'm aware that this is a Beta version and I've paid $5 to participate. It just seems all so underwhelming is all I want to say. It should it at least be a little better than Synergy 1.9 when you go into Beta? At this point of the development cycle it still feels like an Alpha build.
