I have SyneryKM (based on synergyc 1.3.1, protocol version 1.3) on my Mac (version 10.6.8) running as server and Synergy (1.3.7) running on my Windows 7 machine running as client.
When I try to connect, the Windows 7 box gives error: "failed to connect to server: The attempt to connect was forcefully rejected."

Does synergy show for you in the menu bar? It does not for me.
I ran the PC as a server and the windows firewall came up asking for access. I allowed it there and am working on it.
Here's what I did to get it working--
Maybe try restarting pc for the firewall exception to set in - it just took me a while for it to go through.
No need for server options or screen aliases on the mac. Use activity monitor to pay attention to synderd and synergys processes. If they are not running, switch them on by going into system preferences and clicking on turn synergy off/on.
