I'm certain this is a dumb question but I'm baffled especially since I've had this working before between these two machines. I was in a different place where both have to connect via WiFi to a router. Now Im back home where my tower connects via a cable and the laptop is WiFi.
Now the damn Synergy on the laptop gives me, Failed to connect to server: No address for: groovy1
groovy1 (XP) is the server and George-VAIO (W7) is the laptop.
Like I said, I know I'm missing something very simple but I'm not finding. I apologize for the dumb question.
The question has been closed for the following reason "Not a synergy issue." by willichan 13 Feb '12, 10:27
I was able to solve this by adding an entry in the HOSTS file (C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts) like below:
Just replace 123.456.789.123 with the IP address of groovy1 and hostname with groovy1.
