I'm trying to share my keyboard and mouse between 2 laptops.

Laptop 1: Windows 7 (64bit) Laptop 2: XP (32bit)

When i run the server on XP and connect to windows 7, everything works just fine. However, when i try windows 7 as server, it connects, but i can't move my mouse over to the xp screen.

I have it setup using "configure interactively" where i specified the screen on my left to be the xp.

Any help will be appreciated. thanks!

Post the debug output from the server when you are trying to move between screens. Try all screen edges in case the layout is incorrect. – Malvineous Apr 11 '11 at 23:20
Not that it helps, but I get the same result with 1.4.2 and 1.3.6 with a Win7 PC and a XP laptop. – user86122 Jun 16 '11 at 11:44
