I'm trying to use Synergy to connect my home computer (running Mac OS) to my work laptop (Windows 7). The Mac is the server and the PC is the client. It works fine when the computers are on the same network, but most of the time I need the PC to be on a VPN which gives the error:
WARNING: failed to connect to server: Timed out
My guess was that our VPN/proxy server was blocking port 24800, so I followed this article that uses port forwarding to connect over a more commonly-used port like 80. My router wouldn't let me use 80 so I went with 21 (FTP). I'm still getting the time-out error. Does anyone know how to find a viable port on the client machine?
