Sharing your mouse, keyboard and pasteboard with several Macs (or PC's)


Like many people, I have several computers at work that I frequently switch among:


I recently started using Synergy to share my mouse, keyboard and pasteboard among my main work G5 and my home Powerbook. It is pretty cool, and fairly easy to setup. Once I pop into work, I run a little script to start the client on my PowerBook:


### Stop any currently running Synergy client
killall ${prog[0]##*/}

### Start the new client
exec “${prog[@]}”

I set this to be always opened with Console, and I manually double click on it when I want to start the synergy client.

Read the documentation for the exact way to set it up..once you have it running, it is very cool!
