I am using QuickSynergy on OSX on my client computer and the standard Synergy program on Windows.

I had a configuration that worked two days ago when I last used it, but today I came into work and it wasn't working.

The odd thing is that the server shows that the client connects:

Log:

starting server
config file: C:/Users/RTI_US~1/AppData/Local/Temp/qt_temp.gq7972
log level: NOTE
NOTE: started server, waiting for clients
NOTE: accepted client connection
NOTE: client "danbook.local" has connected

It's just that the cursor won't move to the other screen. The only change in either of my systems was that I added 4GB of RAM to the client, though that seems unimportant. What might cause this to happen?

Have you tried restarting the service? –  imtheman Jul 5 '12 at 21:03
    
Yes, and the client as well. –  crazedgremlin Jul 5 '12 at 21:04
    
Have you tried redoing your configuration? –  imtheman Jul 5 '12 at 21:06
    
Also, what does the client log say? –  imtheman Jul 5 '12 at 21:08
    
I copied the only stuff it said since starting the server in the post. I don't have access to the server computer right now, but I will post it tomorrow morning. –  crazedgremlin Jul 5 '12 at 21:25

Solved my issue. Scroll lock stops the cursor from going to the other screen.

Thanks for posting this follow up. (don't mean to resurrect this thread; but it saved me from restarting the computer——like a fool :) –  jRadd Feb 6 at 17:32
