Scroll lock stops switching

hey i cant find support from the synergy team anywhere, starting to regret purchasing this. okay so my main problem is that the software does not work both ways, i need my Desktop to be the host and my laptop to be the client, but the mouse and keyboard doesnt work using it in that way. it works however when i make my laptop the host and my pc the client, but i dont want to use the track pad and keyboard on there, also i use it as my portable pc. which is why i need it to work the other way around but it refuses to share that way. HELP!

With Synergy 2 there is no Host / Client. It uses an Active / Active model. This allows you to use either Keyboard/Mouse.

My setup uses Desktop / Server / Laptop

From the Laptop I can use the track pad or my bluetooth mouse to control all three. If I want to use the mouse on the Desktop, I just start using it and the Desktop becomes the new "leader" and works on all three machines. It is a fairly seamless process.

If you have changed your configuration, I would suggest restarting the Synergy service on all machines.

Hope that makes sense

Did you not see the "Contact" link on our website?

https://symless.com/contact

How did you find the forums before that?

Don't worry, Sarah didn't think you're using Linux. It was an FYI, if you were thinking about using Linux at any point.

Sarah will reply to your ticket, thanks for your patience.

I have the same issue ~ So it´s frustrated that this chat don´t end in a solution... But only end with a "Sarah will reply to your ticket, thanks for your patience."

So what to do? - When it´s only work one way - from MacBook -> PC its works - BUT not the other way around?

I have re-booted both machines and the Synergy app also - and I´m using version 2.0.5-stable...
