Synergy (utility)

Version: 1.4.15 || Release Date: 2013-10-23 || License: GPL App Owner: chriswhite

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display.

synergy: [noun] a mutually advantageous conjunction of distinct elements

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 and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all.

Synergy is open source and released under the GNU Public License (GPL).

Wrong version number

I think the version number should follow SynergyKM not synergyd or synergyc. This could make AppFresh correctly identify.

that's a real life saver, just installed it, I'm a happy guy, it cleared up my desk space.
no I just have to figure out how to make the mac command key act as control on Windows as it's little out of reflex to switch it each time

SynergyKM is the way to run Synergy on OSX, awesome!

Correct link: http://www.deftly.net/synergykm-for-105

Someone polished this up so it'll run on our more modern macs.

Oh yes, this tool is amazing. Unfrotunately, the link is gone. The project is now hosten on sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/synergykm

I've been using Synergy since 04 on my linux boxes. With SynergyKM it is a breeze to setup and use on the Mac!! If you have multiple machines in front of you like I do, this app is the ONLY way to go!

Throw away all those km switches.. SynergyKM is here to stay!!

Oh this is awesome. With my work machine next to my own personal machine, I can just mouse over to the adjacent desktop. The app is stable and simple, took all of two minutes to configure. Superb.

I Was using Teleport, but this is just so much more stable.
