I am trying to configure Synergy on two Windows 7 64-bit machines - one a desktop and the other a laptop. The desktop (the Synergy server) appears to be running and waiting for client connections. I've allowed inbound TCP traffic via port 24800 and outbound on the laptop.
When running the test connection on the laptop I get:
ERROR: failed to connect to server: Timed out ..\cmd\synergy\synergy.cpp,270
I have set the client to use the host's IP address instead of the computer name, as suggested by other search results, but no luck yet. I've also set both to run as administrator.
Synergy says it's quitting with errors and to check the log file but I don't know where this is located. Any help is appreciated.
