Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

Hi Paul,

I tried uninstalled the latest version of Synergy from both my devices & installed the Synergy 1.9-rc3 version on both devices. This did not fix anything unfortunately.
