Cannot link Mac and Pc. (Help)


Recommended Posts

I purchased this product today and I have the latest downloads. 

My Pc (64-Bit) is running as the Server and my iMac is running as the client.

Whenever I try to connect the iMac to the server the message appears as such, "

[2017-08-07T05:09:15] NOTE: connecting to '':

[2017-08-07T05:09:15] WARNING: failed to connect to server: cannot connect socket: Host is down"

I do not understand what this means and why this is happening. 

On my PC, the client lists three IP Addresses, ",, 169. 254. 140. 230"

I have tried to use auto assign and I have tried plugging these IP Addresses manually into the client. Nothing seems to work.

I would greatly appreciate the help and it would save me lots of trouble and anxiety. 

I really want to believe this program works.

I resolved the issue.

If anyone has this same problem and stumbles upon this post. 

They way i solved it was connecting an Ethernet cable between the two computers and used the New Ethernet IP address on the client to the Server.
