Synergy

Monday, June 7th, 2004 at 7:03 pm

A while back I discovered a way to control multiple computers (not necessarily the same OS) via one keyboard/mouse over the network.

The other day I discovered Synergy. Unlike the VNC based solution this is purpose built solution which means that only one instance needs to run on the ‘server’, the screens can be arranged in a variety of ways, and things such as clipboard contents are copied around.

The biggest advantage is that it knows how to deal with multiple displays on a single system which allows me to run it at work so I can use my PowerBook as a third display on my work system (which has a nice pair of 17″ LCD’s)…
