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.

Changes

  • fix file transfers.
  • fix crashes after changing options on a remote host.
  • made the list of shared hosts scrollable again.
  • other misc fixes.
