Teleport 1.0 controls multiple Macs using kybd/mouse

updated 11:40 am EST, Mon November 5, 2007

Teleport 1.0 released

After remaining in development or beta for three years, Abyssoft's Teleport application has at last reached a v1.0 release. The program allows users to use a single mouse and keyboard set to control several nearby Macs; when a cursor is moved off the edge of one computer's screen, both the mouse and keyboard transfer over to another specified machine. Users can sync Clipboard contents, as well as drag-and-drop files as if they were on the same system. The first complete version of Teleport brings with it Mac OS X Leopard compatibility, unspecified improvements, and a number of bug fixes.

The software is available in English, French, Italian and Spanish, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. It is technically free, but donations are strongly encouraged.

    Excellent!

    That's great news. I've been using synergy2 (sf.net) for years now, but it doesn't work under 10.5. It compiles fine but the server crashes on launch. Nice to see a free alternative.

    Excellent Software

    There is almost no proper comparison to Synergy, Teleport is far better.

    Good for them!

    Their software is, in fact, quite excellent. Good for Abyssoft, and may they keep up the good work.

    better than sliced bread!

    wow. i've been looking for something like this for a while (not very efficiently as it turns out now) and in my situation, surrounded by 4 computers that all do their own thing, i find this better than a KVM switch, because all the macs still work on their own, without having to plug in keyboards when they are needed for other users. phew. long sentence. sorry.
