Get SynergyOpen a support ticket

'\' and '|' not received by certain windows.


Recommended Posts

Hi I have a feeling this may be a windows problem rather than synergy, but here goes! I have 2 X windows 10 machines running synergy, it seems that the backslash and pipe characters are not recieved by certain applications. Notepad++, cmd, cmd(as admin), notepad, word all receive and print the character as expected. a putty ssh connection and cygwin do not print the character, I can enter the characters using the client keyboard so the apps can display but for some reason they ignore synergy. any ideas? Thanks

Typically I've found a partial solution just after I posted! playing around with the keyboard options in putty, disabling "Control-Alt is different from AltGr" seems to now allow me to enter | and \ chars into a putty session. cygwin also has an option "ctrl+leftalt is altgr" which fixes the issue, just need to fix vmware now!
