Multiple IPs

3 posts in this topic

Hello all, my "server" Windows PC has several IP addresses on NIC and sometimes Synergy bind to an arbitrary address, avoiding connection to its client. Does it exist any way to force a given binding address for the server? Cheers Luca

The most effective way to do this that comes to mind first, is setting a static-IP address for both devices. The client would never get confused where to connect to. I hope this helps :)

I have only just started to use Synergy so don't have much experience yet. However, I thought that the following my be helpful. I am using DNS throughout my network but have configured the router such that it always give the same IP address to particular machines (using their MAC addresses). I set it up in tis way some time ago and find that it is working very well. Of course, it all depends upon your router providing that facility.
