I have two machines connected. The server is S1 and the client is C1.

section: aliases
section: links
        right =
        left = S1

When I start Synergy on both machines, the connection is made but I get the subject WARNING message on the server constantly. On the client, I get the three messages below.

ERROR: server refused client with name "localhost.local"
WARNING: failed to connect to server: server refused client with our name
NOTE: connecting to '': XXX.XXX.XXX.73:24800

Any idea why I am getting these messages? The connection is working.
