    I had to sudo rm the synergy app folder. I reinstalled the osx 1.11.1 software and relaunched. immediately I noticed something odd. It showed a very different IP address. It turned out my laptop was connected to a separate work vpn I had set up via wifi. The old software probably had a configuration set based on the previous IP and didn't auto detect when it changed. i changed my laptop back to the proper network, i saw it updated to the proper IP, and it connected.

    I have been experiencing this forever between my Mac and Host Windows PC. It's definitely a bug, as when you restart the SERVER side (Windows) box's Synergy Service, it corrects itself and copies well again. Since It's been such a persistent bug not fixed over dozens and dozens of versions... I developed this fix to save myself time. Create a batch file that has this in it: @ECHO OFF cmd /c "net stop "Synergy" & sc start "Synergy"" Then create a desktop icon or link that exists on the task bar you can click. You'll lose synergy access to your seocndary host of just a few seconds, but when the service restores and the connection re-establishes, you'll get the right COPY/PASTE contents back. Thought about making it a scheduled task but I haven't seen any level of predictable timing for when the bug occurs.

    This is an issue I have been having for quite a while now (maybe forever) and, until now, been lazy to report. My setup contains 3 machines. The master is a Linux (Linux mint 19.x) and one client is Mac OS (Catalina, now) and one Windows (10 version I-don't-know-but-recent). I am a bit loose on versions, because I had older versions of these OSes before with the same problem. When I want to type a quote or a double quote on my any of my machines, I type the following sequence: ' or " followed by a space. On the master, it all goes well as I get ' (the quote, 0x27) and " (the double quote, 0x22), but on the Mac client I get ´ (the slanted quote, 0xB4) and ¨ (the trema, 0xA8); on the Windows client I get nothing for the single quote and ¨ (the trema, 0xA8). FYI, just upgraded my synergy software to 1.11.0-stable-b2173efb, no improvement.

    Hi Jamie, I tried this exact approach with the latest version of Synergy on Mac OS Catalina, and I was met with unsuccessful results. The desktop client interface did not change at all and still would not allow me to enter an IP address.

    We do indeed have ARM64 binaries available, they were built on a Ubuntu 18 OS and can be selected on the downloads page

    Any chance of a Synergy build for ARM devices running Windows 10? I was toying with buying a Surface Pro X, but I do pretty much live off of having my thinkpad as my primary input device for everything at my desk. I know, I'm a little fringe, but aren't all Synergy users?

    Dominique, great insight. I think you're correct. I am able to reproduce at least one case with 1Password (password manager) on the Mac (used as my master). When I bring up 1Password (where it goes into Secure Input mode with its own password), don't log in, but their dialog is still up, cursor is in that dialog, then switch over to my WIndows machine (slave) using Symless, I get into the state of: mouse worked, keyboard input still on the Mac. If I then go back to my Mac and kill 1Password (actually just dismiss the dialog), then everything is ok. I'm not convinced that this covers all the times I have problems, but I'll see if it reoccurs, and at that point try to see if there's a background window for 1Password or any other security-related app still running or sitting around. Thanks for the pointer to ShareMouse--it has really good features.

    Some minor corrections / recommended changes: dpkg-deb -R whateverVersionYouDownloaded.deb nameOfFolder cd nameOfFolder mv usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service.dpkg-new cd .. && dpkg-deb -b nameOfFolder synergy2.deb

    Funny how this has had so many voices and it's only now (possibly) coming in two more years. Today was my first use of this product, and the three-finger gesture was the first issue I found. Purchase, install, connection were all relatively smooth, then I hit the black hole of three-finger gesture. You'd have a pretty great product if it just did this one last thing. Now you are left with a product that people will eventually leave for a silly reason like not taking a few weeks to fix a limitation. You are supposed to be fixing customer problems, this is clearly a customer problem. It doesn't just annoy people it removes a simple feature they use daily.

    Mine was working fine then it stopped and I was not sure why, after reading these posts I looked at my mouse settings and remembered that I turned on smooth scrolling in Logitech Options, so on a whim I turned if off and it started working again. maybe this will help someone.

    At least with the iPadOS Beta you can use a bluetooth mouse to point and touch anything on the screen. I think this is one of the new Accessibility features that they added in iOS 13 (You can use any 'pointing' device in fact -with the exception of the magic mouse and magic trackpad-). Perhaps now Synergy could be used to connect as a bluetooth pointer to the iPad? I hope you take a look into this. Anyway, thanks for your great work.

    System Setup My Server is a 2017 iMac and the client is a late 2012 iMac (both running 10.12.5), I also have a headless PC (This therefore does not have Synergy installed - running Windows 10 Pro and I log into that from Microsoft Remote Desktop), the server and PC are wired connections, the client is wireless. I have tested this with both 1.8.8 and 1.9.0 RC3 and the bug appears in both of them. Bug & Reproduction If I connect to my PC using MRD on the server everything functions correctly. If I log in from the client Mac, whilst everything functions correctly outside of the MRD connection... In the connection, the [Shift] key, fails to function. Please see the attached screenshot where I have typed the same phrase. As the [Shift] key functions on MRD when I use my Server System, I think I can rule out any configuration issues on the Windows 10 install. Other keys like [CAPS] function correctly (a partial work around).

    I have tried it from the prompt in Windows 10. My monitor is set to 1 min before turning off and my computer is set to never sleep. My monitor still never goes off.

    We're changing drag and drop to "coming soon" on our website, as of the 2.0 release. We will be re-writing this feature in 2.1 (due early next year). Because of recent OS updates, this feature has stopped working properly for a lot of users. If you purchased Synergy because of this feature and need a refund, please email us: [email protected]

    I had the same problem but it was self-inflicted. I corrected the IP address in "Interface" in "Edit>Settings" to fix it. http://symless.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=917&p=2750#p6389

    It takes a little work, but it is possible to use Synergy over VPN without split-tunneling. Here is what I did. 1) Register yourself a free (or paid if you don't want 30-day nags) dynamic DNS address (DDNS) from a place like dynDNS or no-ip 2) Register for the Pro version of Synergy to get that sweet, sweet SSL security. You're going to be opening some pin holes, so best to keep the connection secure while in transit 3) Select a non-default port for Synergy to use - again security precaution From you home network router: 4) Create a DHCP reservation or assign a static IP for your server system 5) Create a port forwarding rule on the router that will forward all traffic destined for the port you determined in step 3 to the IP to determined in step 4 (source should be any IP, any port) From Server system 6) Install Synergy if you haven't already done so, select server, and register your Pro key from step 2 7) On the Settings menu, enter the port number to determined in step 3, check the "Use SSL Security" box and click OK 8) Click Configure Server and then add your client screens as you normally would From home router or server system 9a) If router supports automatic dynamic DNS updates, configure your router to update the address you registered in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address -or- 9b) Install the DNS update client from the service used in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address From your client system(s) 10) Install Synergy and select Client 11) For "Server IP," enter the DDNS address you created in step 1 (don't use auto config) 12) Make sure to set the same port number from step 3 in the Settings screen 13) Watch the magic happen I think that about covers it...

    I'm also having the same issue. It appears there's a bug in the Synergy GUI that doesn't save the hostname. I've worked around it by editing the file: ~/Library/Preferences/com.http-synergy-project-org.Synergy.plist and adding the key / value pair: <key>serverHostname</key> <string>SERVER IP ADDRESS</string>

    I have a question (and apologies if it has been asked prior) I have a setup that looks like this: Two different machines on the same physical KVM Switch that I routinely go back and forth between - we will call these Machine A and Machine B A second machine with its own dedicated monitor / keyboard / mouse - we will call this Machine C I have Synergy running as a server on Machine A I have a Synergy running as a Client on Machine C that connects to Machine A Is there a way for me to be able to have Machine C [b][i]ALSO[/i][/b] be a client to Synergy Server running on Machine B? Basically, what I want to be able to do is still move my mouse between Machine C and Machine A or Machine B, depending upon which one I am actively using through the physical KVM switch
