Unable to switch to the client computer's monitor

Recommended Posts

LA3

Current setup:

  • Server: Debian Sid ("debian")
  • Client: Windows 10 ("Win10")
  • Both share same monitor

So I am able to connect to my client computer and under "Configure Server" the client is placed on left of server:

[2017-06-09T13:28:07] NOTE: accepted client connection
[2017-06-09T13:28:07] NOTE: client "Win10" has connected
[2017-06-09T13:28:14] INFO: switch from "debian" to "Win10" at 0,332
[2017-06-09T13:28:14] INFO: leaving screen
[2017-06-09T13:28:14] INFO: screen "debian" updated clipboard 0

The log shows that I am connected to the client, it shows that I made the switch to client but nothing changes on the screen. I believe I am missing something really elementary here!?

Hi @LA3. Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

I think the answer is: I don't have separate monitors for each PC duh!!

So you only use one monitor for both machines @LA3?

Yes, but I understand that Synergy is currently offers only KM solution, not KVM?
