Synergy - using more than one PC at a time

review by Rodney, Jul 2006


I am compelled to write a review on this most wonderfull application for anyone running two computers having differant operating systems (or same) called synergy.


Quote from the site:

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).


Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together. Finally, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all. Osh! By! Gosh! it's a beautifull thing. No more grabbing for the wrong mouse or reaching over to the other keyboard. They claim it works on most every operating system across the board. All they have to have in common is that all systems must support TCP/IP networking. You have to pay close attention to the setup instruction, but I found that if you use the defults and don't tweak the other settings untill you have it up and running you will be fine. Where did I find it you might ask? Well I actually stumbled upon it using my StumbleUpon tool bar in IE, but that's another review.


Keep up the good work,
