What is it?
teleport is a simple utility to let you use one single mouse and keyboard to control several of your Macs.
Simply reach the edge of your screen, and your mouse teleports to your other Mac! The pasteboard can even be synchronized between the computers.
How do I use it?
Using the convenient Preferences Pane, you configure which hosts you want to control, arrange them graphically like in the Monitors panel, and you're ready! Simply reach an edge of the screen where a slave host is connected, and you take control of the other Mac. The keyboard is acting like if it was connected on the controlled host, and the pasteboard has optionnally been synchronized. On the master computer, a nice notification indicates that it controls another Mac, and shows you the position of your mouse cursor.
To take back control of your main Mac, simply drag the mouse back from where your cursor came, just like when you have several monitors.
What's new in this version:
- Encryption: keystrokes, pasteboard and file transfers are now safe on the network, thanks to strong encryption. See below for more information.
- Files drag & drop: files and folders can now be drag & dropped between the hosts to copy them. See below for more information.
- Wake On LAN: if you're using teleport on an Ethernet network and that your shared Mac supports it, teleport can try to wake a disconnected host before controlling it.
- New Trusted Hosts pane: man... See all new features »
