I have installed Synergy Server on my laptop, and the Client side of things on my Virtual Desktop Session, both running a Win XP environment. I am able to connect no problem. When I move mouse to client machine, I can click on items and activate them, but I do not see my Mouse Cursor from the server. I can use keyboard shortcuts, but its a real pain trying to operate 2nd machine, with no mouse pointer.
As a clarification, I have installed the Synergy Release as of Feb 20th (newest install) and when I stated that I installed the client on one and server on other, I was making incorrect generalizations. I installed same installer on both, just wanted to clarify which I was using as server, and which as client.
