Syn1.8.6 Cannot Connect to Server Portal WiFi Router and VPN

0 posts in this topic

Today I updated Synergy to 1.8.6-stable-2ab21aa. I have a Windows 10 desktop (Synergy Server) connected to my home network and a Windows 7 laptop (Synergy Client) connected to WiFi and a VPN. This configuration has been working for years. Now I get the warning:


WARNING: failed to connect to server: No route to host


My router has been the Netgear N600 but I recently changed over to a Portal WiFi router. With the update and using the Portal router, I can no longer connect the work laptop to the Synergy server running on my desktop. If I disable the VPN is works. Also, if I connect to WiFi via the Netgear N600 and connect to the VPN it works as well.


Something about the combination of the latest Synergy version, the new Portal router, and VPN. Any ideas on how to resolve?
