Synergy 1.7+ SSL encryption

Synergy 1.7+ replaces the existing crypto with an SSL transport plugin, according to http://synergy-project.org/wiki/Security. This is automatically configured for Synergy Pro users using the GUI, but can be compiled from source and installed manually for free. Might be worth touching on this in the encryption section, which is now outdated. Wlritchi (talk) 06:24, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Update to Synergy 2.0

Fedora 26 is now on Synergy 2.0 - it breaks existing configurations/autostart/etc - so likely we're going to have to update the article very soon. :-| Zatricky (talk) 05:44, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

A tip about keystrokes, should be OS agnostic, not sure where to put it

Default way for switching between clients is to go over the edge with mouse pointer (perhaps redundant point), for switching clients using keyboard only, there is a posibility for using hotkeys (keystrokes) like:

(is there way how to make nice shift key and such?)

  • Win+` for switching to client on the right
  • Win+Shift+` for switching to client on the left

Add following section called options (if you don't already have one) and define keystroke with switchInDirection argument


 section: options
         keystroke(Super+`) = switchInDirection(right)
         keystroke(Super+Shift+`) = switchInDirection(left)
 end

(not sure how to remove the indent)
