Multiple monitor setup

18 posts in this topic

I have 5 monitors on my master (server) computer.  I have my client computer which has one screen above the master monitors.  Synergy is viewing all the master monitors as "one" top monitor, but I only want one monitor to act as the "transfer monitor".  Is there any way to do that?  Thanks!

Hi @symless_noobie. How are the 5 monitors arranged?

Horizontally, left to right.

Which of those 5 monitors has the client monitor on top of it?

In screen settings, the first monitor or the third from the right -the middle monitor.  I have my laptop above that monitor. (this is a picture before I moved my laptop)

You can try to enable Top-left and Top-right Dead corners. Then, set the corner size to fit/route the open side of the server monitor as the the middle monitor. The value on the corner size is based on pixels.

Sadly, that did not work... It still treats all of these monitors as "one screen".

Can you share a screenshot of how you configured the Server Configuration?

Can you also post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface? Also, what is the screen resolution of each of your monitor? You can check the resolution for each monitor faster by opening a browser on each monitor and go to this site.

I have similar issue. However, my setup is top left to right is the server, bottom left to right is the client. My sertup is six monitors. My mouse gets reconfigured but I can't move it from top to bottom or visaversa

I apologize, I got busy and haven't had adequate time or energy to respond go this post.  Still haven't fixed the issue.. I'm using a USB to DVI and HDMI plus a USB to VGA, but that shouldn't be a problem should it?

where can I find the settings program?

it was not included in my configuration when I bought the pro subscription. as a matter of fact the only thing I've got was just the download link and that's it.... no docs and no other software. I then setup the software on a mac and on a windows hardware, the software worked ONCE and nothing since for the last three days...

I have the same situation.

My Host has 3 Monitors, from right to left: MacBookPro, MiniDSP connected, HDMI Connected.

My Client is above the middle Monitor, but the only way I can move the mouse to the client is via the left monitor.
Down to the host it is so, the left corner goes to the left monitor, the right corner goes to main monitor which was at the beginning the MacBook and at the moment the middle monitor.

But it doesn't work as intuitiv as it was before, when the client was right from the MacBook.
