Unison configuration files are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\username\.unison. Initially there should be a configuration file default.prf there. Prepare/Modify a configuration file to fit your needs.
If the Unison version on your Server is different you can use the -addversionno. For this create a batch file e.g. sync.bat in the C:\Program Files\Unison directory:
"C:\Program Files\Unison\Unison-2.27.57 Gtk+.exe" -addversionno
Next create from the batch file a shortcut to the Desktop if you wish.
