Synergy at work!

, posted: 2-Aug-2006 15:27

I have set up both my work laptop and my personal laptop to use synergy so I don't have to switch back and forth betwen both laptops.

Using a cheap USB 2.0 Network cable (HX8177) which I got from Dick Smith Electronic for $38, installed the software on both laptops to use Virtual Network set up. Give them both a non-routable IP addresses and set up Synergy.

The set up is quick and easy and no hard configuration. The only hiccup I had was the screen and link configuration dialog was a bit unintuititve. After following Synergy's "Getting Started" help, it pays to read step by step to get the most of the set up going smoothly.

I highly recommend anyone who are using more than 1 computers, across different OSes, and have network set up, and use the cheap virtual KM setup. Text and image copy and paste works great, shame file copying are not supported yet but looks promising though.
