If you use several Macs at the same time, its very impractical to keep changing keyboard and mouse. Teleport is a simple preference pane utility that allows you to use one single mouse and keyboard to control several of your Macs.
Once it has been setup, all you have to do is drag your mouse to the edge of the screen and the mouse will automatically Teleport to the other Mac.Installation is just a case of selecting whether to share your Mac, and then arranging it which order you'd like them to appear. You can even synchronize the pasteboard between the computers.The most useful thing in Teleport is that you can drag and drop files between machines simply by switching the mouse cursor to a different screen.
The secret of Teleport is Bonjour which it uses to find available hosts and Macs on a network. It's ideal for Mac Mini owners who don't have a keyboard or mouse to use with it, or want to exchange data between their Mini and regular Mac.
Within the Options tab, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to enable screen switching, customize the delay between switching screens andalso configure support for dragging and dropping files between Macs. You can also specify a rule to limit how large pasted files can be, if you plan to copy and paste between Macs.
teleport lets you use a single mouse and keyboard to control several Macs. Simply reach an edge of your screen, and your mouse teleports to your nearby Mac, which also becomes controlled by your keyboard.
Yes, they are. I don't think teleport would work if they were not. It's too long a story to tell about how I wound up with two new iMacs when I have been getting along quite well using another display for more screen space, but neither of these iMac can be used in target disk mode. But take for example right now. The newest iMac will not allow me to open Mail, so I have to go back and forth from the iMac right in front of me to check Mail on the other one with the same keyboard and mouse. It's **** when teleport won't work because of the desk configuration. It's hard for me to use another keyboard and mouse over there.
Indeed this seems like overkill for the problem. Mail is particularly peculiar today, and the situation is different for both iMacs; however, for now I want to stick to Teleport itself. On one computer there is now only one icon at the top (presumably for the latest Teleport software), and on the other one, there are still two icons. I needed to use Teleport today, after restarting last night, and it didn't work. So restarting still causes it to drop the connection between the two. I was using my trackball as usual when I almost accidentally discovered that Teleport would work with the Apple mouse. I continued to experiment, and while it has always worked with whatever mouse device I was using, almost always the trackball, today it will only work with the mouse. What do you make of that? And can you perhaps suggest a fix since I much prefer the trackball, and in fact, don't have much room on my desk to deal with a mouse anyway.
Thanks. I will check it out. Most of these type of apps are for PC. I've tried at least one other one and did not like it. Teleport has been working though it is does not retain the connection after a restart. Someone here advised a way to make it remember, but it was complicated. Still, I wouldn't know why it would not continue to work with my trackball if it does indeed work with the mouse.
