2.0.2-stable: Step back from 2.0.1-stable (lag, firewall weirdness, etc.)

6 posts in this topic

Keyboard/mouse lags every 5-10 minutes or so for 1-2 minutes. Wasn't happening on 2.0.1 (rock solid).

Also, on my personal PC the install was super quick. On my work PC, which is locked down by Group Policy (firewall) the install took like 15 minutes. That wasn't the case with 2.0.1.

TL;DR: We're still using beta software. Starting to get annoyed. Every other release is good. One step forward, two steps back.

Ilya,

Is it possible something else is kicking in that is a demand for available resources? On earlier versions, I had the lag and traced it to a scheduled anti-virus scan starting in the background.

AVs are better now and so are other background actions, but just a thought for troubleshooting.

I'm new to Synergy 2 but just installed it yesterday and had these same lag problems. It's unusable for me. I went back to 1.8.x for now.

Nothing else on my system has changed, I noticed the lag pretty much within the first hour of use of the new version. That being said, I'm a systems engineer/former desktop support technician for a living so my setup is pretty damn perfect and runs smoothly 99% of the time. This is the only app that has given me issues (obviously the first few we were still under the beta test).

The fact that installation took 15 minutes on my work laptop vs a minute that it used to take for all previous versions (including the betas) is a red flag to me.

Is there an ETA on 2.0.3? This lag is a real PITA when I'm trying to get work done. It's BRUTAL. If not, I'm going back to 2.0.1.

I'm done with synergy 2.0.x.  It's painfully inconsistent.  I shouldn't have to spend 5 minutes every couple of hours getting my synergy app to hit whatever online service again.  1.8 is stable and does everything I want.
