Synergy2 - not managed to connect any workstations


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Have tried Synergy2 but it hasn't ever synced though I can see if getting the hostnames from the 'central' service?

I have a laptop (Mac) and Dual book Windows/Linux workstation.


Logs for Windows and Mac first.

Windows Log

Mac Log (10.11.6)

Ubuntu (17.10)


I have docker and various hypervisors installed on some of the systems and I'm wondering if that is causing any issues. I can see some connections are failing on the MAC to connect to the local service sometimes. Can I blacklist any interfaces that it binds to?

It's because of .local at the end of the hostname.

We're aware of this bug, and have prioritized it.
