Share screen but use local keyboard

Posted on


I have a PC (Windows 7) and a Mac (OS X Lion). Keyboard and mouse to each of them but only one screen. I know I could buy a DVI switch but it would be nice with a solution in software.

Is it possible to share the desktop of a Mac to a PC while still being able to use the keyboard connected to the Mac? I tried the built-in VNC screen sharing but it seems to overtake the local Mac keyboard and mouse (it’s also quite slow). I would also prefer if it’s the current Mac desktop that’s shared and not a new session. A shared clipboard would also be nice.

Is there such a thing?


Would Synergy solve your problem?
