Regardless of it’s cross OSes, or Windows to Windows … you may run into issues copying & pasting in either Server -> Client … or Client -> Server direction.
If you opened up the Server Log window, you may have noticed disconnects … but you don’t lose synergy connectivity (the lightning bolt stays attached).
If you’re running a server on Linux or Mac, then you can skip the next step – which talks about Windows config.
Grab WinSSHD from Bitvise (www.bitvise.com/winsshd) & install it on the server. Ensure you allow port forwarding.
Once it’s running, on the CLIENT Side, use SecureCRT (or puTTy) & configure port forwarding to the newly installed Windows SSH Server.
Once configured – on the CLIENT, login & fire up Synergy.
The established SSH connection will be the transport for port 24800 from the Client to the Server.
If using Mac or Linux, use command-line SSH to setup the port forwarding. Again, the Server must be configured to allow port forwarding:
# ssh -L 24800:localhost:24800 user@ssh_server
If setup properly, you’ll get your lightning bolt & all will be well. Since using this setup, I have not had a single issue copying/pasting between my two windows machines.
This started failing about 8 hours later & hasn’t worked since — even going back to older releases & up to the latest Betas.
It’s GOTTA be the x64 OS —
