Run from command line

For debugging and troubleshooting problems, it's sometimes useful to run Synergy via the command line.

First, we'll need to get the command line string from the GUI, like so...

  1. Open Synergy
  2. Click the File menu (Windows/Linux) or the Synergy menu (Mac)
  3. Click the Preferences menu item
  4. Change Logging level to Debug
  5. Click OK
  6. Click Apply
  7. Click Stop
  8. Scroll up in the log until you see "INFO: command:"
  9. Copy the text after "INFO: command:"
  10. Change the Logging level back to Info

You should have a command line that looks something like this (e.g. on a client)...

/Applications/ -f --no-tray --debug DEBUG --name woody :24800

Now, open Command Line (Windows) or Terminal app (Mac/Linux) and paste in the log line and hit the enter key to start. To stop, use the Ctrl+C keystroke.
