|Re: [PLUG] synergy gotcha|
Floss weekly had a
show on it. I use and like it (sharing across my main Linux
box and a windows laptop), but keep in mind that there are some
security implications with it, from the FAQ:|
Q. How secure is the application?
Well, not very, but we're working on it (see issueÂ#13). In the meantime, you could look at usingStunnelÂ(cross-platform). One of our targets is to make Synergy run over an encrypted connection. You're safe to use Synergy if you're on a network you trust, such as a LAN which is protected from the internet using a firewall.

Big synergy fan here. I use at work (so I can pull out my laptop if I need to, and seamlessly use my desktop's mouse and keyboard) and also at home, so that I don't have to plug in big monitors or USB cables on my laptop when I set it on my desk.
