macOS <-> Windows - Jittery cursor

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm using a macOS Mac to control a Windows machine however my mouse's movement is so jittery. It often jumps half way through the Windows screen and sometimes it jumps back to the Mac, with the slightest movement.

It's not laggy, it's jittery.

What should I do?

Thanks

I was battling an issue similar to this but with the opposite control scheme, so the Windows machine controlled the mac.  The solution for me as silly as it sounds was pinging the host constantly.  opened the terminal on the mac and typed "ping -i 0.1 <your servers ip>".  

 

Before this I attempted to adjust the priority of the processes, increase the checks for the client but nothing worked.  This issue wasn't always a problem, it seemed new and after a bit of research it sounded like it was a network issue with my Macbook pros wireless network.  My guess is it's trying to sleep the network adapter or a process or something and constantly pinging the host causes it to never sleep.  Regardless, I hope this helps.
