Hi 👋

Apologies for the delayed response, I thought I should ask if you are still having the same issue? 

If so, would you mind checking if it might be firewall related? A good way to check is run a ping test - https://symless.com/synergy-help/how-to-do-a-ping-test

Running the ping test would check if the computers can communicate with each other (outside of Synergy), if the ping test is successful (ie. get a response) it's likely a firewall rule related to Synergy. If it's not successful, it means there is an issue with the network, that something is blocking the computers from communicating with each other (perhaps on different networks or router has client isolation enabled).
