  1. Amazing news everyone! Synergy 3 RC1 is now available to download. Update: Synergy 3 RC2 is now available.

  2. Hello, I just upgraded to Synergy 3 in hopes they fixed gestures on my second macbook. No luck :( It obviously works well on my main macbook but it would be nice if I could use my trackpad to do a 3-finger swipe up to show all apps on my second mac. Also, the option button on my mac bluetooth keyboard doesn't work either. I have to use the keyboard on my second mac to get it to work.

  3. It would be awesome to have native V6 support in the Synergy app. For networks where the focus is to be v6-only or v6-preferred it's impossible to use Synergy without configuring IPv4 at the current moment. In Synergy 2 you could specify the full IP address of the remote computer but I found it didn't matter if I used hostnames with only a AAAA record or tried to configure the address manually, both with and without brackets around the address and wasn't able to yield any results. The synergy server would immediately crash and restart repeatedly with the v6 address configured. Additionall

  4. not sure when wayland support is planned, but linux is moving pretty fast in that direction. Doesn't effect me at the moment, but I'm sure my next upgrade will see wayland on my computer either alone or alongside X. Either way X is clearly on its way out.

  5. Synergy 3 RC2 is here! A few of the changes: Many fixes on all operating systems Skip empty screen with continue button Improved overall installation process Use readable names in generated config file More comprehensive reset procedure on macOS You can get RC2 on the download page.

  6. It would be nice to use my laptop's keyboard as the primary while working on the laptop, but still use the mouse from the desktop computer. I'd like to propose more granularity in choosing which host is the primary for which device.

  7. Just wanted to let you know the android and Samsung Dex would still be great additions. I realize this thread started over 5 years ago but both android & Samsung have continued to move into daily drivers for so many people. Even if it doesn't have the copy & paste features initially, just the ability to share the mouse and keyboard would be great!

  8. Barrier is not developed any further at the moment. People who contributed to it now are flocking around input-leap. Waynergy was more like a workaround until libei was in better shape, I am not sure if this will continue as a project, now that there's a more defined way to do this kind of thing on wayland. So, my money is on input-leap. I'm running it on Fedora 39 on wayland right now. It's not perfect, but at least it's working again.

  9. Under the same Keyboard and Mouse section if you click on Hotkey configuration you can set a hotkey to Lock to screen. I haven't actually used that but I see that its available.

  11. Hi Tim, Thank you for contacting Synergy Support, I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing an issue with Synergy 3 on your set up. It appears that the Remote Desktop is keeping hold of the keyboard instead of the keyboard transitioning with the mouse cursor as expected, luckily there is an easy fix for this, could you navigate to the 'Miscellaneous' section in Synergy 3 and disable the option Take foreground window which should resolve this issue. Hope that helps and please let me know if there is anything else I can assist with? Thanks,FerasSynergy Support

  13. Hi, for Windows: I solved this problem by uninstalling Synergy. I also had to delete the Synergy folders in C:\ProgramData\Synergy, C:\User\***your user***\AppData\Roaming\Synergy and C:\Progam Files\Synergy. (first 2 are hidden folders) Somehow an older version saved the former IP Address in one of the config files. Nebst 127.0.0.1 there was also the old IP Address of my computer stored. (e.g.: locale.json in ProgramData\config\) After reboot and new install it worked. wbr

  17. Thank you, Jason. For my part I have four computers (win7,win8,win10 and win11) The win7 is the synergy server and I was just adding the win11. The win7 (left),10 (middle) and 11 (right) are all across and the win10 (top) is above the win8. The new win11 box was registering with the win7 server, but the mouse would not go in to it. I restarted the synergy service on both and it had no effect. I rebooted both, but still the problem persisted. I just happened to need to reboot the win8 (the middle one) for a disk check (some bad areas on an external drive), and that (somehow) solved the probl

  18. I too tried ipv6, the server doesn't seem to bind to the ipv6 ip(s). I realize my use case is not very common but I have a network policy that when connected to a VPN, my local ipv4 traffic is being blocked leaving me with the option of using ipv6 or not being able to talk to local network.

  19. @Nick Bolton Any updates from the Symless team? libei hit 1.1.0 about 2 months ago. KDE is about to roll into Wayland territory by default. At this point I'm happy to give Symless another $50 to get Wayland support, if it means I don't have to waste a day fumbling around getting input-leap built and blunt forcing it into my Debian setup.

  20. This is still very much an issue in the latest and greatest version (Synergy 3). This bug has been there since release. The devs know about it, but for some reason don't have the capacity to fix it. Really a shame. This is a huge advertised feature and when it doesn't work half the time, is it really a feature at all anymore?

  21. Hello, I was just wondering if y'all have any plans to add Android compatibility to Synergy? I have an android tablet, and also now with the introduction of Samsung DeX would like to use that with my phone as well. If you created an Android app and charged for the app individually, I'm sure you'd get a lot of hits.

  24. If I can do some very basic things on my tablet without having to pick it up and touch the screen, I'd be happy already. Just being able to use it as a basic second screen for a web browser or playing music without having to release my mouse would be nice.

  27. I don't know at what point this issue started exhibiting itself, but for the longest time I thought it was some combination of Little Snitch rules and the iCloud Private Relay. But I uninstalled Little Snitch and disabled the Private Relay feature, and this issue didn't go away. So I reinstalled Little Snitch and told it to block 172.0.0.0/8 addresses, and that resolved my issue. You see, I created a different thread about this a month ago, but my Windows 10 server has several virtual network adapters, and Synergy recognizes all of them, for some reason (but no IPv6...?). And while my mac

  28. It's an issue with RC2, I reset Synergy on both, reinstalled RC1, rebooted both, configured them, and now I'm back up and running again. I might try and reproduce the issue with RC2 again this evening just to confirm I have the same problem come back.

  29. RC2 is broken for me as well. Win11 server, Ubuntu 22.04 client. The connection is working but the mouse is "invisible" (actual pointer on Ubuntu doesn't move but I can see when my mouse is moving over buttons that highlight. Also, the keyboard isn't working. I've reset Synergy on both machines, no change.

  30. Hi, I've a setup where 2 MacBooks are connected to 2 external monitors, and I switch between the Macs for the additional screen real estate as needed. I use either a KVM switch or a dock, depending on where I'm at (dock in the office, KVM switch at home). Synergy worked fine until a couple of months back, when I upgraded to Synergy 3. Now, the connection's wobbly most of the time, and the odd times I do get to move my mouse across to the client Mac, I can't see the mouse pointer anymore. I know it's moved as I see the highlights when it rests on some app in the dock, but I can't seem

  31. Came here looking for a fix too, bummer that it's just a Windows thing I guess. New Synergy 3 still has the same issue, and I've got Win 11 host to Win 11 client where I can't type on the client in the picker. Synergy 3 does seem to resolve issues I had in the past with settings/UAC prompts that required elevated access that Synergy (no matter WHAT I did in settings) just couldn't access, so I was hoping it would fix this too, but this is like the last holdout. It's such a dumb thing to be annoyed by, but dang if it doesn't annoy the heck outta me every time. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  32. Same for me, but it seems to work if I paste it on the Mac first into some app that accepts it, e.g. Preview app and then paste into NextCloud Text, and then re-copy and paste it. That looks to me as if the Macos screenshot clipboard format is somewhat not compatible to the Windows clipboard image. Did you find any solution ? Synergy 3.0.72.1

  33. Hi there, I'm using Synergy 3 Beta, v3.0.70.34-beta, and I don't know where to post ideas, so I hope i'm in the right place. And sorry for my bad english. Ideas: 1 - Profiles, with different screen positions, since some computers can be notebooks and may change position, or with my situation where the main computer changes (more on that later) 2 - Use keyboard/mouse from any of the configured computers 3 - Keep computers from sleep, when keyboard/mouse is in use So, explaining... Ideas 1 and 2: My main computer can change. I have two monitors, that I share be

  35. 2 - Why it's breaking the core concept? Synergy is about controlling other computers through a keyboard and mouse, right? Synergy 3 beta has the option to change the "server" (the one sharing its keyboard/mouse) with some clicks (open synergy, click continue, click on the three dots of the computer you want to "serve" and "Use this keyboard and mouse")... Well.. if this option is available manually, why not automatic? It's "just" (easy to say) a question of "which physical hardware is been used? ok, now this one is the server"... no?

  37. I have experienced a lag like this since first installing Synergy years ago. I found disabling TLS gets rid of the lag completely in my case. (4 computers, Mac server, 2 Windows clients, 1 Linux client) The security concerns of not having TLS encryption enabled are not something that worries me since all of my devices that use Synergy are on an isolated subnet.

  42. Nevermind, I fixed it myself. I'm running the client for my wife's computer inside a child process, capturing the stdout from synergyc and when her mouse enters the screen, I focus the window that synergy is running in (which sits off-screen so it's hidden). That's what it took to workaround this bug - simply having the window focused that synergyc.exe is running in will make the mouse cursor disappear when her mouse leaves the media computer. I noticed that, and then figured if I could capture the mouse entering and leaving, and auto-focus that window (using nircmd), it should work, and it di

  43. This took quite a bit of troubleshooting, and it's a bit of a hack. These settings assume you're using a Windows system as the server, and the Mac system is the client. What this will do to map your keys: Windows key 'control' will be 'command' on the Mac client Windows key 'Windows' will be the 'option key' on the Mac client Windows key 'alt' will be the 'control' key on the Mac client On Windows: Stop the Synergy service running in the background. Go to C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\AppData\Local\Symless\Synergy Edit the synergy.conf file as follow

  46. It takes a little work, but it is possible to use Synergy over VPN without split-tunneling. Here is what I did. 1) Register yourself a free (or paid if you don't want 30-day nags) dynamic DNS address (DDNS) from a place like dynDNS or no-ip 2) Register for the Pro version of Synergy to get that sweet, sweet SSL security. You're going to be opening some pin holes, so best to keep the connection secure while in transit 3) Select a non-default port for Synergy to use - again security precaution From you home network router: 4) Create a DHCP reservation or assign a static IP for your s

  49. ah HAH! I found it. "[b]ipc connection error, connection refused[/b]" has started occurring for me when the Synergy [b]service[/b] is [b]stopped[/b]. Note that Windows has [b]processes[/b] and [b]services[/b]. Once Synergy is installed, a Synergy service is always running, regardless of whether or not you are currently using Synergy. - In the Task Manager, go to [b]Services[/b] - Find the [b]Synergy[/b] service - Right click, and select [b]Start[/b] I am not sure why this service stopped, but hopefully starting it will immediately restore functionality.
