Thanks for the reply and information
With the Windows 1.4.7 beta version installed i wasnt getting anything like the dialogs as described in http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/running.html
I removed Windows 1.4.7 beta version version and installed Windows 1.3.8 Stable 32 bit version on both machine i want to use as server machine and the same version on the client machine
I tried following the steps for windows users in http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/running.html
in section as follows
On Windows run synergy by double clicking on the synergy file. This brings up a dialog. Configure the server:
•Click the Share this computer's keyboard and mouse (server) radio button
•Click the Screens & Links Configure... button
•Click the + button to add the server to the Screens list ◦Enter the name of server (the computer's name is the recommended name)
◦Optionally enter other names the server is known by
•Use the + button to add your other computers ◦Using a computer's name as its screen name is recommended
◦Choose desired screen options on the Add Screen dialog
•Use the controls under Links to link screens together ◦Click (once) on the server's name in the Screens list
◦Choose the screen to the left of the server; use --- if there is no screen to the left of the server
◦Choose the screens to the right, above and below the server
◦Repeat the above steps for all the other screens
•Click OK to close the Screens & Links dialog
•Use Options... to set desired options
•If the server's screen name is not the server's computer name: ◦Click Advanced...
◦Enter the server's screen name next to Screen Name
Now click Test. The server will start and you'll see a console window with log messages telling you about synergy's progress. If an error occurs you'll get one or more dialog boxes telling you what the errors are; read the errors to determine the problem then correct them and try Test again. See Step 5 for typical errors.
On Windows run synergy by double clicking on the synergy file. This brings up a dialog. Configure the client:
•Click the Use another computer's shared keyboard and mouse (client) radio button
•Enter the server's computer name next to Other Computer's Host Name◦This is not the server's screen name, unless you made that the server's host name as recommended
•If the client's screen name is not the client's computer name: ◦Click Advanced...
◦Enter the client's screen name next to Screen Name
Now click Test.
But no luck = its not working for me
When i started synergy for the first time i got message about firewall - wondow security alert message and i went with default option to allow access in work environment. Im running English Windows 7 Enterprise on both machine
When i start synergy on the Server machine now and click Start i get alert saying
Failed to save autostart configuration: Access is denied
I selected option to have Synergy started eacah time i start the machine via the Autostart button and resulting dialog from the synergy Version 1.3.8 dialog. I set this on Machine A - the server machine. THis could be reason for the above error but i cant get back into this dialog now to switch this option off as i get the same error when i click on the AUtostart... button
Im making a meal of this - I admit im not the sharepest tool in the box - techie wise related
I just want to have synergy running on 2 machines - Machine A and Machine B
I want to be able to use the keyboard and mouse connected to Machine A on both Machine A and Machine B
I know i probably need to remove this and re-install onto both machine but can anyone give me please basic - dummies guide step by step insturctions to to setup and configure this in terms of what options i need to be selecting and setting in each of the dialogs in the synergy configuration on both synergy installs on Machine A and Machine B to get this up and running
Can anyone help me please?
