Synergy: Soft KM switch

Synergy is a software keyboard-mouse switch. This is for those people that have multiple boxes, multiple monitors, but do not feel the need for multiple keyboards and mice. Since this can be configured for MacOSX, Windows, and linux, it is very compatible to be used with all of the above. Simply install the software, make all of the machines that you want are configured correctly on the network, and prepare to be amazed.
All you have to do is drag your mouse over to the edge of one window, and it appears on the other machine’s opposite window. You can cut and paste text across screens.
Definitely very useful if you do not own a KVM switch or only need a KM switch.

  • I prefer a hardware KVM, which is what I use currently (IOGear), but this is a good software solution.
