Hello. First time poster here.
I have the synergy on my, and my wife's computer. The only way I can get it to work is to run the server on her PC, and client on my PC. This will allow her to move her mouse onto my 2 monitors. The problem I am having is, when I run the server on my computer, they won't connect.
All the tutorials I have come across seem to be of an older version. So, I have missing steps. The error I'm getting on my wife's PC when trying to connect to me as the server is " Failed to connect to the server: Server refused client with our name."
We are both using vista ultimate/64bit
Thank you in advance for your help.
Make sure you can ping the server from the client. If you're using a firewall, then you may have to either add an exclusion for the Synergy port (24800) or disable your firewall temporarily.
Edit: From the comments, turns out the answer is to make sure the client screen name on the server configuration is correct.
