Synergy over Serial

1 post in this topic

Hi, I was wondering if there was any way to use synergy over a serial connection? I'm currently in a situation where I am not able to open up ports on the firewall in order to allow the synergy connection over the network. However, I was thinking that with a USB-2-USB connection between the two machines it should be possible to connect them that way. Has this been done before? Does anyone have any experience of this?

Not sure about serial, but in my office I have my MacBook connecting to my desktop (Ubuntu) using a Thunderbolt2Ethernet adapter on the MacBook and a USB2Ethernet adapter on the desktop. Then it's just a cross-over cable between them. You will need to configure the TCP/IP settings for the adapters, but it's pretty trivial stuff. And probably waaaaay more usable than serial ;)
