    I am trying to set up SynergyKM to work with my mac (10.6.2) and my windows 7 machine. I am setting up my mac to be the server and win7 to be the client. I am using my mac computer name for the mac monitor in synergy and my pc's IP for the other synergy monitor. I am pretty sure everything is set up properly but i am receiving the message "Cannot read configuration /var/folders/fy".

    Has anyone encountered this error before? Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Same Issue

    I am getting the exact same issue and it is driving me crazy!
    Part of me wants to say I screwed something up when trying to configure synergy

    Similar problems with Synergy here. It worked fine on Mac OS X 10.5 both as keyboard+mouse server and as a client together with Win and Linux machines.

    Unfortunately Synergy is not working at all for me on 10.6.2 machines despite first installation on a clean system, compensating for firewalls etc. I hope that someone will fix the problem since it is a very useful cross-platform tool. In the meanwhile I am using the excellent Teleport, but it works only with the Macs.

    Did you get this to work in the end? I run SynergyKm with OSX 10.6.2 and Windows XP SP3. I want to install Windows 7 but only if this is working.

    Any feedback most appreciated.
