I am trying out the trial version of "Stardocks Multiplicity" which allows two networked computers to be controlled by one mouse and keyboard.
Worked really great as well for a couple of hours:)
That was until I had to reboot the 2nd pc and on restart I am getting 'Unable to connect' Protocol Error!
The error is only related to this particular program as networking is still unaffected.
PC 1 has Eset SS and PC2 has Avast and both are working fine but I tried turning both off to see if they may be blocking this program (No success!)
The Stardock website FAQs don't give much help unfortunately.
Windows firewall is configured to allow access and initially everything was good so what can change on a reboot?
I am on Xtra broadband Explorer (Wired)
Any ideas on setting protocols would be appreciated... Thank you:)

Found the problem.
The multiplicitys program is very unreliable!
I found another software called "Input Director" which allows the use of one mouse and keyboard to control 2 PC's at the same time. (And it's Free!)
Easy to set up and goes like a charm.
