I'm really pleased to announce that MKShare is finaly ready for publice release and available to download from AmiStore for just £5.00 (plus VAT).

MKShare enables you to seamlessly share your mouse, keyboard and clipboard between several AmigaOS computers, reducing desk clutter and avoiding the need for KVM switches which are often reported problematic with Amiga based systems.

For your £5.00 you will get the MKShareServer which runs on the central computer with the mouse and keyboard attached and the MKShareClient with runs on up to 4 client computers. As additional bonus you get a FREE MKShareClient68k which enable you to control an a1200 with networking or perhaps a WinUAE based amiga too.

Unlike systems like synergy a low level protocol is used that mimics the behaviours of input device with packets closely matched to the underlying event messages, giving a smooth amigalike feeeling to the remote mouse. You can hardly tell it not a 'real mouse'. In most cases lag is minimal, the exception being when the server of client are under very heavy CPU mode.

I've been using MKShare between my SAM Flex and my X1K and it honestly feels like one machine with two monitors!

MKShare also has the abilty to reconnect if the client of server is rebooted.

 Kudos
Wow, that came as a surprise. Kudos to you! I don't have another Amiga system i could use this with, but i'd be sure to keep an eye on this one...maybe you want to enhance it to use foreign platforms aswell sometime in the future? All other solutions (synergy etc.) doesn't work for me

 Re: Kudos
Thanks Raziel.

If there is enough demand I might make linux client. I would need to learn abit about how linux events work first though in order to translate the amigalike rawmouse info in linux style events.

It does work with WinUAE, so if you have a machine you use for emulating a 3.x 68k environment you can share the AmigaOS4 mouse keyboard and clipboard with it. You will need to adjust the windows firwall to give it access though.

@tolkien

The 68k client might work for MorphOS maybe, untested though.

 Slightly confused terminology
@broadblues
Just a small constructive criticism: I find the terms "client of server" and "server of client" to be somewhat confusing as to whether you are talking about the client or the server. Please just use "client" or "server".

Secondly, it's not made clear, but I am *assuming* that the "server" is your main Amiga that you use, and that "clients" are the Amigas you are remotely using?

@ChrisH

the term "server of client" is not a term at all but a typo

"server OR client" was my intention.

The server is the machine with the actual keyboard and mouse connected yes.
