Synergy: Working on Two Computers with One Keyboard/Mouse
Synergy is a great tool if you are working on two computers simultaneously and you would like to share one mouse and one keyboard. It comes with a light-weight GUI and is plattform independent.
Debian users can download it via
sudo aptitude install synergy quicksynergy.
To connect two or more computers, just go through the following two steps:
- Start quicksynergy on the server (or host), fill one of the fields at the Share-Tag with the computer name of the client and hit Execute.
- Start quicksynergy on the client, fill in the servers’ IP address at the Use-Tab and press “Execute”.
