Is there any way to autostart synergy before of the log in?

4 posts in this topic

As the title, I want to run synergy right after the boot, and use the shared keyboard to log on my mac.

I tried to list synergy on log-in service in system configuration, but it runs after the log on.

Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server).

Server : windows 10 x 64, synergy version 1.8.8 stable

client : Mac OS X 10.12 sierra (64 bit), synergy version 1.8.8 stable(I can't sure, but it's latest version for mac)

Both computers are connected via ethernet. 

 

I can make synergy autostart on server with windows, but can't to do with mac

In OSX 10.8 and older, you can use a plist through launchd. There's also an example of this method in the source code.

There is not currently a known way to do this in OSX 10.9 or newer. In all versions of OSX, you can have the user login automatically, and set Synergy as a Login Item, which will have it start up upon user login.
