It worked for about a week then stopped working. I'm trying to make it work between a Windows 7 laptop and a Windows XP laptop. My router is a Linksys E1000. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program multiple times. I've tried port forwarding. I've tried making exceptions in the firewall. I've tried disabling the firewalls. It might be relevant also that Input Director doesn't work either. What am I doing wrong?
This happened to me between MacBook Pro OS 10.6 and HP Win XP. My Belkin router had changed IP addresses when I power-cycled it to reset. I just had to enter the correct IP addresses in both and it worked again.
I used the Info button in the Synergy window on the HP to find the IP address for the HP. It is the client.
To view the IP, use Start, run, type in CMD and press OK.
You can enter the IP on the client (remote computer), but in the server configuration, you must enter the name of the computer.
My problem... When I set XP as server, I cannot move to the Win7-64 (running client with correct IP) When I set Win7-64 as server, XP as client, it works. But that's not what I need here.
I've been over and over this and I think there must be a bug or known issue(?)
