View Full Version : [all variants] Ubuntu synergy server w/ Vista Client through SSH

June 30th, 2009, 04:14 PM
I'm trying to set up synergy to run through SSH. Windows Vista client, Ubuntu (actually gOs) server.

Currently I've got synergy working without SSH.

I've also got openSSH as a server on Ubuntu working fine (as it is accessible through FileZilla on Vista).

I've found a terminal command for doing this from linux to linux

"Install the OpenSSH client on each synergy client computer. Then, on each client, start the OpenSSH client using port forwarding: ssh -f -N -L localhost:24800:server-hostname:24800 server-hostname" here: http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/security.html

But how do I do this in Windows Vista?

Thanks very much.

You may want to try putty.

Thanks very much. I've installed PuTTY on vista... and I've been able to log into the other machine via PuTTY (it looks like the terminal).

How do I go about redirecting synergy to connect through openSSH from Vista?

This is literally my 1st day attempting anything involving the word server or SSH.

Thanks again.
