Their github account changed names (from synergy to symless) so the download URL needs to be updated.

In order to tunnel using ssh, you can do, instead of 'synergyc <remote>':
ssh -L24800:localhost:24800 <remote>
synergyc localhost

Ah that's good news. I only started using synergy with the 1.7 series and I've been experiencing those annoying hangs in regards to the clipboard too. I'm guessing it's not compatible with a 1.7 client?

I'll probably try your package. Thanks!

They switched to using openssl for all connections, and something is terribly broken, have hard to track crashes because of race conditions. Seems to be triggered by / related to clipboard and copy and pasting. No time to look up the bug tracker entries now, but it rendered the 1.7 version completely unusable to me. After much frustration and investigation, I reverted to 1.6.3 and everything was fine again. For security, you might want to tunnel the stuff using ssh!

What kind of instablity issues were you experiencing on 1.7.x that don't occur on 1.6.x?
