Login failed! Session IP address mismatch

15 posts in this topic

This keeps happening to me on my Personal and Company Networks. Which is due to both of these networks are on Multi Wan Routers with load balancing running. So at any point we could get different ips for each connection made from a computer. Anyone have a solution for this.

That's quite an unusual setup, and can/will break rather a lot of things - tracking session consistency by source IP is fairly standard.

Most home connections only change IP when you reconnect (and only because most home ISPs use dynamic IPs, even it appears with v6.. sigh..), so typically that's not an issue.

Load balancing multiple upstreams with different IP ranges that your connection could come from is generally considered bad practice, except when one is active and one is standby.

However, if what you have is an outbound NAT pool of multiple IPs, then things can be done on the firewall to pin destinations or more commonly sources to specific IPs. It rather depends on what firewalls you're using.

IMO this goes /far/ beyond the scope of these support forums, though depending on the situation I /may/ be able to assist.

nope, I don't think we can help you with that. 

except telling you to use a single router with multiple access points (and different networks, possibly).

contact symless at [email protected] to make sure they know.

you mean anything can break at any time? seems like something I would do, just because.

Login failed! Session IP address mismatch

 

Just installed Synergy 2 and am getting this error when trying to run the program... Only 1 external IP address from both computers.

update: I can log into 1 computer not the other.... Kinda strange you need to have the redirect back to Symless web page for the program to work... I don't have time for this right now so back to synergy 1.

I have the same problem, we have a modem, router, AP device, which connects to my pc, but also to our Wireless Access point, that my laptop uses, so I am connected to 2 different network names, used to work in the beta though, very weird. Basically 2 devices on 2 network devices working. But since the stable build it doesn't work anymore

Have the same problem...

DHCP company network, both computers (mac & win) are connected via lan cable to the network...

tried to install it on the windows 10 pro machine --> session ip mismatch, reinstalled it & it worked...

on the mac 10.12 always the same problem. can not connect via session ip mismatch...

i use chrome on both computers. is there an easy solution, or should i just use synergy 1 until this problem is resolved?

Exactly the same issue here. Pointless.

Tried troubleshooting for 1/2 an hour, but that is honestly too much for a KVM solution that I am trying to use professionally.

Rolling back to Synergy 1, may ask for my money back on 2.

I regret buying Synergy 2, seems like the focus is on verifying that each instance is paid for vs plain old usability. I also paid for Synergy 1 a few years ago because it was useful and easy to implement. I'm back on Synergy 1 now and likely won't be trying 2 again for quite a while. I recommend Synergy to co-workers but certainly can't recommend Synergy 2.
