Error Message/Issue in Synergy
At first,after you install and setup the initial things of it, you will need to try to connect with your another PC (in same network).
During connection, many of you may get the following error messages (at the moment, while you try to pair them):
On Client’s window:
Note: connecting to ‘x.x.x.x’ : x.x.x.x:24800
ERROR: server refused client with name "user" WARNING: failed to connect to server: server refused client with our name OR ERROR: server already has a connected client with name "user" WARNING: failed to connect to server: server already has a connected client with our name
On Server’s window:
WARNING: unrecognised client name "user", check server config NOTE: disconnecting client "user" NOTE: client "user" has disconnected
Solve the problem
The problem is that the user which tries to connect is unrecognized, it means you have to add that user in “ALLOWED” list. To do this, open “Configure Server”, then drag a new PC into the cell.
Then double click that new PC icon, and enter anything in the SCEEN NAME field, but in ALIAS field, add exact username of the CLIENT. Click OK>OK and START them on both PC’s again. Problem should be solved !
