Recommended Posts

@eddie Thank you so much for the information and workaround! This issue has been bothering me for quite some time and drastically increase the frequency I restart my Mac.

I'm really glad I found this thread. The keyboard would just stop working on my client (both server & client are Mac) and the pid holding the securesession was indeed the login console. Instead of killing it, I just locked the server screen and then unlocked it again. (in my case using fingerprint) When I re-ran the "ioreg -l -w 0|grep SecureInput" command it was no longer being held by login window. I then confirmed that keyboard is working on my client machine again.

Hope this helps.

Server OS is 10.15.7 (the server seems to be the issue)

Synergy on server is 1.13.0-stable-863f70a5

P.S. - Great app. Love it.

I found a better workaround for me whenever SecureInput on the Mac is the problem (earlier posts). If it is something like 1Password, than just kill that and it usually works. But if it's the Console Login process, it's a bit inconvenient in that it  logs you out and kills all your windows, which is better than a reboot but causes a bit of a hassle to restart things.

Instead, if I just force a screen saver desktop lock, then relogin in, it clears up the Console Login hold. I then am able to go on my merry way without having to reconfig anything else. 

Hope you have better luck with this.
