I am running quicksynergy on an Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit Acer laptop and Synergy 1.3.7 Client on a Windows XP laptop. I have been using this combo for approx 3 weeks now with no hassle. However since yesterday I loose intermittent control of the mouse and keyboard for the XP (Client) m/c at random and then it recovers. Looking at the client synergy log with log level = debug it was complaining that it couldn't connect to the Server and that it was trying after 1 sec. After a couple of tries it would connect and everything would work fine for a while.
I have an IP address in the client rather than a m/c name.
Whilst I can see the log on the client is there an equivalent log on the Server where quicksynergy is running that I could look at to see what might be the problem.
Trying to work in this hit & miss way is not very conducive to productivity.
All help gratefully received.

Try using the latest version, which shows log messages on the main screen of the GUI.

Try the command line with -l on your server while troubleshooting.
Something like this, where /synergyS.log is your log file.
/usr/bin/synergys -c /etc/synergy.conf -l /synergyS.log -f
Using -f will allow you to see real time what is going on, the log file can be your permanent reference.
