same issue here using 1.14.5 on macos 12 using a windows PC as the server and the mac as a client. I cannot move my mouse to my ipad when using synergy but I can move it to my ipad using a mouse that is directly connected

^bump

very similar setup here.

i make music on my macbook, game on my desktop. I suspect it will work if i use the mac as the mouse / keyboard server, but that means introducing lag into the gaming setup. I am going to test it anyway. maybe with a wired connection it wont be so bad but it means the mac will have to be docked in order for me to use the PC at all (or start fumbling with cables i suppose)

-Ill mention here that sidecar does work with synergy. If i want to extend my mac display with sidecar I can move the synergy mouse (controlled by the PC) to the ipad no problem.

 

^This suggests to me it is a simple fix to just make synergy respect universal control in the same way it does with sidecar. This would be much easier than making a synergy ios app for example :D

 

sorry i talk so much but i think it is all useful in case anyone important reads this 

thanks !

I haven't tried anything out since making this post. I run beta versions of everything macOS or iOS. So I'm always on the latest versions of OSes. I'll have to give it a try again when I'm working from home again, on Friday. I highly doubt anything has changed. I'm also using latest version of Alpha versions of synergy.

I'll post an update later this week.

anyone have any tips for getting the pc to connect to the mac as a server? it keeps timing out when I try to connect the PC synergy client to mac synergy server. firewall is turned off on the mac but not on pc. if that matters.

starting to think this wont work when I do get them connected because there are two "pointers", one belongs to synergy and one to the OS. will still update when I figure it out.
