I've been using synergy for a couple of days now but one of the problems I keep having is that it minimizes my full screen games whenever I want to move the mouse over to another computer - which is the primary reason I installed it in the first place - I understand why full screen games with no mouse icon confuse the program, but is there any way around this?  Would having the system which /isn't/ running the FSG being the server help?

 

Thanks!

Just installed this to link my Vista 64 primary computer with my Windows 7 Beta machine.  Works awesome between the two. I haven't had such a big smile on my face since I built my first computer.  I'm still grinning ear-to-ear!

Just installed this at ome for PC repairs and general troubleshooting, I personally like it better than using KVM switches. It's digital, it works and less clutter than a switch. Still, the actual computers need to work unlike a switch where it is external, but shmeh.

After reading the article, I downloaded synergy to check it out. Setting up under Windows is a breeze. Setting up under linux required a bit more, but at least it has linux support. Worked out nicely. I started playing COD4 (on the client system) online and did not have any real lag or hiccups.

For windows machines only, I've found that Input Director works much better.

Just installed this program on my desktop and laptop and it works perfectly. This will make writing papers easier. Thanks MaximumPC for introducing this software to me.
