I see the cloud servers seem to have had some sort of issues over the last couple of days... which coincided "perfectly" with my trying out V2 Beta for the first time.
Which brings me to the main question... is V2 really really not going to work without having some sort of annoying cloud connection? Is this the plan for this software? If that's the case and I can't even start the program and manually configure my settings anymore then I want my 5€ back.
I know all these nifty features that lets you use your synergy stuff even while not on the same network and stuff and all the other nice cloud enabled things that might be nice for many... but I for one am not someone who wants to trust Symless to handle all this stuff in a secure manner. We're talking about intercepting keystrokes here for crying out loud. Having them go to some cloud servers and no one really knows how this stuff gets handled there. This makes synergy V2 basically a keylogger that sends stuff off into the internets!
I have Little Snitch running on my Mac. I know what I want synergy to be able to connect to! And if this cloud stuff is going to be mandatory then give me my money back!
Yeah, you'll be able to configure online via the cloud config service and then run it offline from that point (in case your internet goes offline). However, when you need to make changes to your config, you'll need to go back online. Or, you can skip the online cloud config entirely and configure it manually offline from the command line interface. But the command line is really meant for people who want to tinker under the hood, as you'd need to fiddle around with IP addresses, etc.
