The GUI is too light


Recommended Posts

Hi, I like and understand the minimal approach that S2 is aiming for, however it alienates those of us (power-users) with experience of S1.

My use case is Synergy installed on 3 devices: 2xDesktop (OSX+WIN64) and 1xLaptop (OSX)... the desktops are in home-office and work-office and are both servers to the laptop. When I tested at home (OSX+OSX) it worked first time and I thought, "this is cool, it'll save me having to tweak the settings when I move desks"; however once I arrived at work it fails (OSX+WIN64) and at first glance there isn't anything I can do to fix it (there probably is, but there's no guidance in the app on where to start)

Going forward, I hope there will be the return of some kind of network settings override, for example being able to force a static IP for the client to connect to.. something for the power users who know how to manage local firewalls, static ip's, cross-over cables and the like.

If the strategy is for power users to use a config file (CLI or similar) might I suggest doing something like keybase as I don't imagine I'll be alone in expect some kind of settings page.CqwShj2UMAABxtf.png


As I've got a deadline, I've rolled back to S1 as that works fine for both my use cases and will provide logs etc later to troubleshoot the issue (this post isn't about about that).

We do intend to add a settings screen. We know we won't get it 100% right, but we want to get as close as possible before adding settings. We'll then start adding settings based on the most popular demands.
