Synergy Config

To get synergy working, both the client and the server need to have a /etc/synergy.conf file, like the one below. make sure to replace “server” and “client” with their respective hostnames:

section: screens
    server:
    client:
end

section: aliases
    server:
    10.0.0.2
end

section: aliases
    client:
    10.0.0.50
end

section: links
    server:
    left = client
    client:
    right = server
end

section: options
    screenSaverSync = true
end

This is configured to have the client on the left of the server, and the server is to the right of the client.

Run the following commands:

sever# synergys -f --config /etc/synergy.conf
client# synergyc 10.0.0.2

Replace all instances of the word “server” with the hostname “chiyo”:

vi:%s/server/chiyo
