What are people saying about Simidude

Rick Truell This sounds just like what I'm looking for...considering the sudden unreliability of the freeware program I'm currently using for a similar thing :-(

I checked the web site but couldn't find any mention of an upgrade policy. What is your upgrade policy, both to a new minor version and to a new major version?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Rick,

thanks for your kind words! Please go ahead and download Simidude- there is a 30-day trial available so you can find out for your self if it is for you.

Thanks for the upgrade policy comment. I'm about to incorporate this and other comments into a future version of the website.

The upgrade policy is as follow:
You are entitled to free updates within the bought major version. So if you buy 1.2.0 you are entitled to received all updates until 2.0 for free. You will get a discount for the 2.0 version.

The next version will be a 1.3.0 (if no hotfix is required for the current version). So you can expect some 1.x versions until I switch to 2.0.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me at contactagynamix.de or tuhlmannagynamix.de

Thanks,
Torsten.

Rick Truell Thanks for the fast response, Torsten. I'm glad to see you have what is a fairly "standard" upgrade policy.

I've already downloaded the versions for Windows and Linux. Don't have a Mac...yet :-) Now all I need to do is find a way to create a couple of extra hours in each day so I have time to check the program out :-(

Nelson Therrien I've been waiting for an application like this for a long time...

Usually, when I wanted to copy a file or a software key from my desktop to my laptop, I had to copy it to a shared folder first... Then, sometimes I had connection problems and my pc didn't see each other, so I had to look for another way...

The other option was to insert a USB key, copy the file to it, safely remove the USB key, plug it into the laptop and open or copy it from the USB key to the laptop... a lot of steps just to test a file or copy a serial key...

Now, life is so much easier with Simidude! I can share everything between my desktop, my laptop and my wife's laptop!

Alexander Deliyannis I've been trying the program for a few days and have been sufficiently impressed by its functionality to register it today. There are a couple of rough edges (for example, I would expect seamless drag-n-drop operation with files from Simidude, but one has to 'download' contents first) but overall it remains the most convenient way I have found to move data around my multi-OS home network. Prior to this I had a USB drive on my router and used FTP to read/write files between Windows and Linux.

I am also impressed by the generous 'one license per cluster' scheme; coupled with today's BdJ promotion it's a bargain.

I have a question: if I buy a license for my office, will there be a conflict with my laptop which is used in both home and office locations? (I have already registered this at my home cluster.)

Graham Rhind Yes, a superbly simple and effective piece of software, which will really save me the hassle of constantly having to cut and paste information into OneNote and then "recapture" it on my other network machines.

Torsten Uhlmann Thanks for your kind words!

Alexander: There is no conflict between a home and company cluster. Just make sure you either use the same group name in the Simidude settings if you want you laptop to join both networks or use a unique one if you want it to stay out of it. Licensewise there is no conflict.

Truman Roper So I'm guessing that this would setup a "virtual clipboard" on my wireless G network at home and anybody on it (after installing this) could "share" files as long as they were dragged to the clipboard area.

Would each person on each laptop need to buy a license on my home (network of three users) network?

Sounds good, so far.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Truman,

you need one license per connected computers. So if you connect three computer in your household you still meed only one license. Simidude is meant as a personal productivity tool to transfer data between the several machines you work at. If you wish to connect other members of your household together with Simidude that's just fine!

If you have any suggestions please post them at http://helpdesk.agynamix.de

TopDog This is a fantastic program. I used the trial version and it made my work so much easier. Not only does it transfer files, but it shares the clipboard between computers and that is what really helped me out. This program works flawlessly. I have not had a single problem running this software. One word of caution. If you purchase this program and use Outlook as your e-mail program make sure the feature of removing extra line breaks is turned off for the e-mail you receive with the key. If you don't Outlook will scramble the license key.

Alexander Deliyannis Torsten thanks for the clarification; I have now bought the product for my office as well and, as you said, my laptop worked fine in the network there. Brilliant!

For a future update, please consider enhancing the drag-n-drop operation of files (i.e. when one drags-n-drops they are automatically downloaded). In the current behaviour it seems counter-intuitive that simply nothing happens.

Duane Moore I posted to the wrong product. Here's what I mean to say here:

I clicked the Buy Now icon and was taken to an order page that said "AGYNAMIX Simidude $9.95 Your special Bits du Jour price."

I entered my credit card information and placed the order and the price was changed to $35. The confirmation email shows the price at $35, NOT $9.95.

This is serious.

Michael R I like the idea of your program, but have a question about it:

If I would have a registered licence for Simidude, but the person I want to share some objects with, does not have one, I would have to convince him, to buy your product too, to be able to share files, right?

There is no such thing like the program does work, if at least one of the sender/receiver has a valid license, is it?

If it would be, I could tell a (short time) customer to download your (not licensed) program and I could used my licensed one and we would be able to share objects with it. But he would not be able to share it with someone else (not licensed).

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Michael,

Simidude is licensed per network group or cluster. That means, for all computers you want to connect together and share information you need ONE license. However if you want to create several network groups you need a license per group.

In your case you one need ONE LICENSE.

The program comes with a 30 day trial so you can download it right away and test it with the other person...

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

John M I've bought this software some months ago. It really does what it says and it's convenient and functional in various scenarios. I have it on all my PCs although I don't load it on startup. I open it when needed because I don't like something to constantly monitor my clipboard ( that's just me and my madness about security ).

In general a great piece of software that provides great functions for all of us that have a local lan. It's also really easy to use and configure.

Michael R Just saw, you are offering your program for different platforms.

Does that mean, the personal license is valid for all of them and can the objects be exchanged between computers with different OS?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Michael,

yes, one personal license is valid on all supported operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac).

Even more, one license is valid for more than one computer simultaneously, provided you use these computers all in one Simidude group (they are meant to talk together). So you need one license for each group you plan to have. In almost all cases people only run one group with 2 or more computers.

Hope that helps,
Torsten.

Peter User Hello Agynamix:

Does this mean that the items that are copied to the clipboard of one of the computers in the Simidude group, that is currently being monitered, are uploaded to a server somewhere on the Internet? If so, what are the privacy policies and rules of the server and/or company that is being used for this sharing?

Thank you for your help.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Peter,

no data is being uploaded to the internet. Simidude is meant to work in your local network. It does not have a server anywhere. Rather when Simidude starts on one computer it checks out if other Simidude instances are running in this same network and then connects to them if they share the same group name and password.

There are ways however to connect to other computers outside of your local lan, for instance if you are running multiple subnets (larger company) and want to connect one computer in one lan to another lan. However that's only if you set it up. By default no data is leaving your network.

Hope that clears up things.

Have a great day,
Torsten.

Torsten Uhlmann Max, what do you mean by compatible? In general Simidude can run side by side with other tools that read the clipboard. However there might be issues with clipboard entries appearing multiple times, but that depends on the clipboard tool. I encourage you to download Simidude now and try your specific configuration and give me feedback about it. Simidude comes with a 30 day trial license included so you don't have to buy without trying.

Thanks,
Torsten

John H Hi
I tried this before but it was not for me.  I currently found Drop Box to be the perfect solution for me except I pay $10 a month for 50GB of space.  Could you make this program seamlessly sync a folder between several computers?  To have just one working folder to save everything to and then every working folder on every computer is synced to be identical.  I don't want to think about manually saving to all my other computers.

Torsten Uhlmann John, thanks for your comment! Currently Simidude requires some work under the hood to sync folders- and to remember a sync-folder after a restart. So with the current release this is not possible.

I have thought of that feature before but I was not sure how many people would like it.
I will set up a blog post with proposed Simidude 2.0 features and I would very much like you to comment on it. If I may I'll send a short notice to the email address you set here once the blog post is up.
Thanks,
Torsten.

Alexander Deliyannis Just a word of praise for Simidude, a tool so useful that I can't imagine how I used to work in networked computers without it. Also, Torsten's support is first class. I bought Simidude for both my home and office networks in last year's BdJ promotion. It's been working fine ever since, with updates making it more flexible without bloating it.

Rajeev Dugar Do I need licence for each of the PCs or MACs on the network from where I intend to copy files or licences are required only for computers which need to access other computers on the network and transfer data. Also whether this can fetch data from Network storage drives or devices. Also whether I can print to a network printer over the network and the internet. Is it possible to access other computers at a remote location through internet and fetch information from them. An early reply will be helpful.

Diego SEO Hi, Do you plan to add support to Windows 7 64bit in a near future?. If so, I will purchase a license now and wait for that implementation. Thanks, Diego Fernandez SEO Spain http://www.unoentremil.com

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Rajeev,

you would only need one license to connect your PC and Mac. Basically you need one license per user no matter how many computers that users works with.

As to the other questions I'm afraid Simidude is not the right tool for that. Simidude is made to connect computers in a local network. You can though break out of a local network by hard wiring a certain IP address you want to connect to. But for the process of connecting computers over the internet a tool like Dropbox is better suited.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

actually there is a Windows 7 64-bit version out there (http://www.agynamix.de/download/14).

It is identical with the 32 bit version except the global hotkeys don't work yet- but I'm working on that.

Please download the version from the link above (it's also linked on the Simidude download page) and let me know if this version works for you.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

Michael Crosson This would be a useful utility for me, but I am having problems with it. 

It only seems to be working one way -- I can transfer files from my (XP) desktop to my (Win 7) laptop but not from the laptop to the desktop.  Files copied from the laptop do show up on the desktop's clipboard properly, but when I go to launch them, I get the error, "The Client with the Address 169.xxx.xx.xxx cannot be reached.  Maybe the client is no longer running?"  In fact the client is still running on the laptop normally.  I have Norton Internet Security on the Laptop (but not the Desktop) but temporarily turned off the firewall and Intrusion Prevention and it is still not working.  I "allowed" the program to access the network unrestricted.  Any help would be appreciated.  The documentation troubleshooting does not address this issue and I didn't see anything on the forum.  Thanks!

Torsten Uhlmann Michael,

do both machines use the same subnet (for instance 169.1.1.x - they differ only in the last number)? This behavior usually occurs if one machine is available through a NAT (like maybe, a virtual machine). The machine behind the NAT can see into the rest of your network but the rest of your network cannot look into the NAT. Could this be the case?

If there are still problems please open a ticket at http://helpdesk.agynamix....pg=request to make communication more efficient.

Thanks,
Torsten.

Michael Crosson I have had issues trying to make these two computers work together with regard to file transfers.  In fact, they do not appear to be using the same subnet.  The laptop is 169.xxx.xx.xxx and the desktop is 192.xxx.x.xxx.  So, perhaps this is the problem.

I will open a trouble ticket as you suggest.

GMS Do you have a solution for copy/paste from various machines accessed through RDP? I means if I access 2 (or more) Windows PC from a PC using RDP, CTRL-C is disabled! I hoped that your software will help me but it's not the case. Or maybe I have not found how to do this. Thank you for your answer.

Torsten Uhlmann Benjamin, I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying that, when connected through RDP, you cannot press CTRL-C on the remote computer and thus you cannot copy anything to the clipboard?
You could try to mark the text you want to copy and drag it over Simidude. That would not write it into the remote clipboard but it would effectively distribute it to all connected Simidudes. You may though test with different editors because the editor/web browser/whatever in use has to support drag&drop.

Does that help?
Torsten.

Stephane M Hi Torsten,

I am trying Simidude and I am pleased with the different features.

I tried to copy files and folders and it is working but is there a way to stop the files being downloaded from the source?
I tried the copy feature on a huge folder and when I realized what I had done I wanted to stop the download but the only way I found was to kill Simidude.

Thanks.

Unfortunately there is currently no way to stop a download in progress.
However there are features planned for version 2 like synchronizing of folders on separate machines. So the feature of transmitting large amount of data through Simidude will become more prominent and I will add a way to abort a transmission in progress.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

Neville Franks Very useful program which I'll be buying. That said I have not been able to see mixed content in Simidude. For example if I select text and images on a web page and copy this to the Clipboard I only see the text in Simidude. If I copy just the image, then I do see that, but I can't see both. This a fairly big shortcoming IMO. In this specific example you simple need to support the HTML Clipboard format which IE and Firefox use. RTF should also be supported.

Also can I suggest that Simidude is either started after Installation or a checkbox is included in the Installer to enable this.

Thanks,
Neville

Mitchell Kastner Torsten,

Assume I have Computers A & B on my network. Assume I have Simidude on A. If I copy a file to my clipboard on A with the intent of copying it to B and if Simidude will copy the file from A to B's clipboard, don't I then have to go to B to paste it from my clipboard to the folder I want to keep it in?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Mitch,

you need Simidude running on both computers A, and B.
If you drag a file onto Simidude on computer A, the file path will be transfered to B without the use of the clipboard. If you COPY (CTRL+C) the file to the clipboard then the file path only will be copied to the clipboard, recognized by Simidude and transfered to B.

However in both cases the content of the file is transfered from Simidude A to Simidude B without involving the clipboard.

Simidude copies the file's content to a cache directory that will be deleted when Simidude finishes. From there (Simidude B) you can drag the file to it's target folder on computer B or you use the context menu and choose "Save As...".

Does this clear things up?

Torsten.

Vampie C. Hi,

I've bene playing a bit with it, but I have some things that I don't get:

I have different networkadapters: http://shup.com/Shup/4570..._01_35.png
Thats because I have VM's running on this machine.

When I start it on my machine, it says it uses the 192.168.159.1:10036 IP.
And it says "not connected".

When I start it on a VM, it uses the 10.1.128.114:10036
And it says "not connected".

But when I copy something (text) it gets transferred, because the programm probably scans all my networkadapters.

But when I copy a file on my machine, the entry does not get transferred to the VM. Also not when I drop a file or directory on the program.

And also not in the reverse direction.

Are the networks the problem? Or what could it be?
I even added the ports 34, 35, 36 to the whitelist of the firewalls on both my machine and the VM.

-------------

when I copy 3 things fast after each other, only the last one is added to the list.
So i doubleclick a word, do ctrl+C
that 3 times right after each other.

Another clipboardprogram gets the 3 copy's correctly.

Just mentioning it.

Kind Regards,
Vampie

Its when switching from the VM to the local PC that the clipboard gets updated and that it looks like the lists are in sync.

And is there (a chance to create) a portable version?

Torsten Uhlmann Vampie,

in the preferences-Network settings you can adjust the IP address Simidude uses as it's own. This is useful if your computer has multiple addresses and Simidude picks the wrong one.

Also there you can set IP addresses that you want to connect to, circumventing the automatic detection of Simidudes on other computers.

But there might be a problem is your VM runs in a NAT network (another network address then the host) instead of bridged (only the last number is different but it's the same network- if that's the case connections into the VM are difficult if they are not routed properly.

I usually setup my VM's with bridged network thus staying clear of these problems.

Does this help?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi David,

if both computers use the same network (for instance 192.168.0.x) it should work ok.

If the vpn tunnel does not pass UDP broadcasts you can set up a list of IP addresses on each side within Simidude that will always be contacted, circumventing the automatic discovery this way.

Warren Russell Sorry I was just able to get to this and haven't been able to read all the comments yet, but I did a search for Java and didn't find anything. I hope the developers are listening.

I am running 64-bit Windows 7, so I downloaded and installed the 64-bit version of Simidude. When I tried to install it, it told me it couldn't find a Java Runtime Environment. I was pretty sure I had JRE installed, but just to be sure, I followed the link on the Agynamix page and downloaded and installed the JRE from there. It installed a file named jre-windows-i586.exe in c:\program files (x86)\jre, but the Simidude installer is looking for java.exe and refuses to install. I even made a copy of the file and renamed it to java.exe, but that didn't help either.

What do I do next?

you installed the x86 (32-bit) version of Java on your 64-bit machine. That works, too, but then you must install the 32-bit Simidude.

But there is an option box to select Java for Windows x64 (last entry in the drop down box) which would be the right one for you.

you can use ONE license to rule them all. A license is meant for a group of computers that are connected together, no matter how many.

If you have two Simidude groups (one for you, one for another family member) and the two groups are not meant to share information with each other via Simidude but work separately, you need two licenses.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Avi,

Simidude is supposed to work without internet access. Data is transferred locally between two computers without going through the internet. It is more or less like if you share a folder on one PC and use it from another- that's a direct connection within your network.

There is actually no limit to the file size as it is directly written to your hard drive on the destination side. However I guess moving a whole partition (you can also copy whole folders) might not work- it's not meant for this :)

Does this help?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Fritigern,

there isn't really a tutorial available. The simplest case is you just install Simidude on two computers start it up and it automatically connects the two. You can then drag files onto it- they automatically appear on the other side where you can choose to download them.

You can also CTRL-C text into the clipboard and it automatically gets transferred to the other side where you right click-Copy Item to Clipboard to have it available there. That's about it.

If that doesn't work because of a special firewall or a particular network setup then you can send a message to the helpdesk with the specific problem. But just install and give it a try. Simidude is made for people who don't like reading long manuals :)

this quote:

"The simplest case is you just install Simidude on two computers start it up and it automatically connects the two."

raises the question whether I need to install the x64 -version on a WIN / / 64 PC and the 32-bit version on the old XP / 32bit PCs in my network? Or is it sufficient to install the propriate version on the WIN 7 PC?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Max,

on 32 bit computers you can only install the 32 bit version (I'm sure you know, I'm just repeating).

On 64 bit computers you can install both as Windows 64 bit can also run 32 bit applications.

If you already have a 64-bit Java JRE installed then go with 64-bit Simidude, if your installed Java JRE is 32-bit go with the 32-bit variant.

If you not yet have Java you can choose whichever you prefer (likely the 64-bit version will use a bit more memory). The Simidude installer automatically downloads the appropriate JRE.

Does this clear things up?

One remark concerning Ubuntu 11.04: The Unity manager removed the Tray Bar that was visible in Ubuntu in the upper right corner.

The only way would be to set up a global hotkey in the Simidude preferences that you can use to make Simidude visible.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Rick,

The problem might just be that broadcasting does not work across subnets. To get around this, open Simidude's preferences and go to the network settings page. There you can set the IP addresses of computers that should explicitly tried to contact. Do this on both computers with the IP address of the opposite one.

For this to work your VPN must allow a connection between home and office PC in both directions (home to office and office to home).

Does this help?

Torsten Uhlmann HJ B,
in addition to moving files and folders you can also duplicate clipboard text and images to other computers. You can't do that with shared folders. Also, Simidude is supposed to be easier set up than shared folders. If you are fine with shared folders and don't need the transferred clipboard text, you don't need Simidude...

Simidude is made for the private network. Text and files are not encrypted while being transferred. So you should not use it in a shared environment.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

Gerald Montgomery I also purchased this last time. It's excellent. I use it two ways:
1. I'm sometimes programming and using two computers simultaneously. It's very quick to just copy items from one to the other whether it's a file or a screen shot.
2. I have wireless workstations in two different rooms. I'll add items I want to copy to the other workstation quickly and forget about them. Later from the other workstation, I then pick those I want to save from the list of all the items I copied.
Yes I could copy files to a shared network folder but this also allows me to copy text, images and screen shots and all without missing a beat. I copy with "Control C" and forget about it.

HJ B Thanks, but you have not actually answered my second question.

a) If I have a private network, and there are 10 computers on the network, two or more of which are under my direct control, and I install this program, will this give the remaining computers on the network access to my data if someone installs the program on those computers?

b) If people in a nearby home or company have a wireless network and I have a wireless network, does installation of this program make me vulnerable to someone on such a different network that installs this program on one of his computers.

Torsten Uhlmann HJ B,
a) in Simidude's preferences you can set a group name and a password. Only when you know these credentials you can join the Simidude group and spy on the sent contents. But beware that anyone with a network sniffer in your private network can find out the credentials...

b)
no. As long as your wireless network is secure and not open to anyone to join there is no problem. Each one, you and your neighbor has their own network. There is no way they could read data in your network... as long as your network is protected (WPA2 is the current standard) and you don't give your network key away.

Does this help?

@ Michael - Just try it. I was sold after 2 mins. I multi-multi boot all my PCs and it is a PITA to faff about with file managers. With this program, EVERYTHING shows up in one window almost instantly. The only downside? Must be careful what I copy as it may not be suitable for others on the network with Simidude installed.

Faisal Humayun Pros:-
I really like Simidude for what it advertises, and use it often when I'm working on projects in a heterogeneous OS environment. It's perfect for picking up where one left off on different hardware, and its web/network accessibility is just extremely helpful. It's design is very confident in what it seeks to accomplish, and has a very minimal UI (which has its own appeal). The application has proven to be quite stable in Ubuntu, as well as Windows in all the times I've used it.

Cons:-
That being said, this isn't a light-weight program (it averages 65Mb of RAM without any clip load), but behaves very well in terms of CPU cycles. Also, it doesn't offer very much by way of manipulating the clips it manages (unlike say, Thornsoft's ClipMate -- the only other major contender in the clip management space). But ClipMate is strictly windows (with no network awareness, although its clip database can be stored on a dropbox); and its code is based on primitive delphi and has no libraries for native 64 bit support. Both are similarly priced, but this BDJ promo makes not getting Simidude inexcusable :-)

Looking forward to :-
I'd really love to see simidude implemented for Android and iPhone as that would make this product truly cross-platform with all mainstream computing devices. Right now, Dropbox and Evernote are the only popular contenders in that space.

the manual included in Simidude (Help-View Help) is newer. I made a todo to update the downloadable manual.

@Michael K: in addition to moving files and folders you can also duplicate clipboard text and images to other computers. You can't do that with shared folders. Also, Simidude is supposed to be easier set up than shared folders. If you are fine with shared folders and don't need the transferred clipboard text, you don't need Simidude...

@DrTeeth: How do you mean that? Files are only transferred if you drag them into Simidude. For the clipboard you can select which items to monitor (third item from left on the toolbar).

Thanks,

to be 100% sure please try it out (just download Simidude, its 30 days free). Some clipboard tools cause trouble. Mostly that materializes that way that clipboard entries appear twice in Simidude because they are rebounced by the other tool. But each of these tools behaves different...

Michael K Can Simidude be turned on and off selectively as not always does one want every clipboard save to go every other computer.

So if one wants to copy and transfer something, can Simidude be left in a turned off state and then easily turned on just prior to copying something to the clipboard that needs to be transferred to the other computers and then turned off again after that process.

Thanks

Torsten Uhlmann Michael,

you can turn off the clipboard monitoring (Edit-Monitor Clipboard) or you can turn on/off the monitoring of clipboard text, clipboard file entries and clipboard images selectively.

However, dragging a file into Simidude to publish it to other connected computers does always work. But then, dragging a file is a manual process- if you do it you probably want it done...

Tomasz Lisowski From the description above it looks like Simidude makes available EVERY item I copy to the clipboard on my first machine to the other machines. Usually I would not want this, keeping the Clipboard contents private (e.g. some logging data copied using software like KeePass), but when a need arises I would like to be able to share a copied item with the other machines.

Do I have to switch off and on the Simidude functionality to achieve this, or there is some easier way (e.g. a special key sequence to copy to the clipboard served by Simidude)?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Tomasz,

in Simidude you have a toolbar button to switch clipboard monitoring on and off, this is probably what you're looking for. If switched off, clipboard items are not monitored in the local Simidude and thus not transfered to other machines.

But you cannot do is to monitor clipboard items locally but do not transfer them to connected machines.

Torsten.

Tomasz Lisowski Thanks Torsten for your reply. Is it possible to have a global hotkey assigned to switching the clipboard monitoring on/off? I think it is too tedious having to do the following:
1. Switch to Simidude and turn clipboard monitoring off
2. Switch to some other application (e.g. KeePass Password Safe), copy sensitive data using the clipboard
3. Switch to Simidude and turn clipboard monitoring back on.

Even if such a hotkey would be available, I am a bit concerned with the possibility of forgetting to turn Simidude off and exposing inadvertently sensitive data to the other machines ...

Simidude is made to work in a local environment, not so much for crossing router boundries. So if you need a tool to work across networks I would consider something else.

If you can stay inside your own network then Simidude does not ship your data to any internet service thus protecting your privacy that way.

Torsten Uhlmann Allan,

yes Windows 7 64-bit is supported. There is a special executable for that, but you can also run the 32-bit executable on Windows 64. I would encourage you to just go to simidude.com and download it and see if it works out for you before buying a license.

Simidude keeps clipboard entries in memory and that way the more entries you have the more memory is used. Simidude has an option to delete these entries either locally or on all machines. And if that is not enough, you can just exit it (Menu or CTRL+Q) and start again.

Thanks for your interest,
Torsten.

Allan Winston Torsten, when you say that clipboard entries are kept in memory, does that include transferring files? If so, that would eat up a lot of memory. For instance, yesterday I was copying as much as 40 GB of files to an external hard drive. If that had been computer-to-computer, I guess all the memory would have been used up on an 8 GB machine.
Dec 15 2011 at 6:05am Copy Link

Torsten Uhlmann Allan,

only clipboard entries are kept in memory. Files or folders that you track onto Simidude only link to the real file and only the name of the file and its place on the disk is kept in memory. If a file is transferred to another computer (you can let them be transferred automatically or you can manually initiate it) the bytes are read from disk, transferred and written to disk on the other side.

Simidude is well suited for transferring smaller files, but it's probably not the best option for shuffling a virtual machine image back and forth...

Torsten Uhlmann Randy,

Simidude needs to be installed on every computer that you want send data from/to.

Also, all the computers you want to connect must be in one network. So if you look at the IP address of your computers, they must all start with the first 3 numbers (for instance 192.168.1.xxx).

If you visit a client and the client has a network which you do not join with your notebook (maybe because you're not allowed to) then you cannot use Simidude between your notebook and your client's computer. In this case you would need a tool like DropBox that synchronizes over Internet.

Thanks,

clipboard items are pushed from the Simidude that receives it to all other connected Simidudes, there is no server involved. That architecture is ok for small networks, it's not suited for a large number of machines. If you drag a file on Simidude, only the name of the file is transferred at first. When you request the file on one machine then it's transferred between the original and the requesting machine. You can set download also to automatic. That means files are always transferred to all connected machines.

Someone expressed the concern of forgetting to turn Simidude off and thus transferring sensitive info. If you do implement an enable/disable hotkey, I suggest you have it also modify the look of the system tray icon to indicate Simidue's state...perhaps a red slash through the icon to indicate that it's disabled. That way, a quick glance at the icon will show whether or not it's safe to use the clipboard for sensitive data.

Joshua Cearley I just tried the demo and am a little bit concerned; I had both computers set to /not/ automatically download the contents of a file, put a small zip file on the clipboard, cleared the table from one, and the second computer was still able to download the contents of the file even after it was no longer tabled (and was never set to download it automatically on its own.)

This makes me a bit concerned that one could use Simidude to siphon any file they want from your computer, since it doesn't appear to be respecting the original computer's tabling when allowing file transfers.

Torsten Uhlmann Joshua,

please note that it is not adviced to use Simidude in any open network. It is a simple solution for your home network when you work with multiple computers, not so much when people collaborate.

When you drag a file onto Simidude and disable auto transfer then only the path to the file is transferred. If you then delete your entries only locally that file path entry is still available on the remote computer and can be used there. You could use "clear table everywhere", which would remove the entry from all computers that are currently connected. However there is no way to revoke a Simidude entry.

But, on the other side, Simidude and all connected instances see only the files you put in there.

Kind regards,
Torsten.

Frank Sielna Dear Torsten,

I didn't read all the 193 'old' posts but just downloaded the soft and tried.
What I am sincerely missing: lockout some programs from copying their clipboard content to Simidude (like www.clipdiary.com does by filtering). Why? You don't really think my whole cluster needs my eBanking or other passwords? I'm using a PassMgr and almost always use C+P to fill in user/pass combinations.
Especially this makes Simidude dangerous: Two adjacent entries contain user and pass. If I also C+Ped the URL it all is distributed.

What I also liked to see is:
- general size limit
- function limit (only distribute TXT and/or pics)
- size limit per function
- WAN functionality (/this/ is what I needed, in a LAN its peanuts)

Regards, Frank

P.S: I bought/buy anyway because there is one point you could advertise: Adding this missing functionality to VMWare.
VMWare does not C+P /between/ VMs but you always have to C+P from VM to host, use the clip there, then C+P to the other VM. This is where your software comes in pretty handy!

Stephen Brown I use clip cache Pro which keeps every entry I've copied to my clipboard. When I use Simidude, it only copies the latest entry . that is the one you copy specifically to transfer and not the whole library stored in the clipboad, so it's entirely safe.

As for storing bank data in your clipboard, that is dangerous even without using Simidude. What if a hacker managed to get past your firewall. The clip board would be one of the first ports of call. I delete all records pertaining to finances and passwords.

That said: If what Frank Sielna said had been true, then Simidude would indeed be a very dangerous program indeed. But as I've pointed out above it doesn't copy everything. Besides Simidude is usually used on a home network where the only users who have access are your family.Unless you have something to hide from your family it shouldn't be a problem.

unfortunately you are wrong.
About not monitoring/listing the clipboard (it does, even though unreliably - on one machine it copies/distributes) over time /all/ clipboard entries, on another one just some [all taken from notepad.exe]) as well as about the importance of /secret/ passwords.*
BTW: A good password manager doesn't store the data there but deletes it after 10 sec.

*Have money stolen from your bank account. Now guess what the /very/ first question of your bank and the police is? Yes, it's "Who else has access to that account". Believe me, it is disastrous if you say "potentially my whole family and all our guests ever accessed a PC in our home. This is because I do not have secrets from my family."

I use Clip Cache Pro that keeps all of the items I've previously copied apart from those I manually delete, (which I always do when I feel it is sensitive data such as passwords and bank details). If simidude did what you said every time I went to copy something over I'd get hundreds of clipboard items. That has never happened to me. I can't explain or understand why you are getting this problem?

BTW to protect my passwords I use a password manager (at the moment I'm using a free copy of Sticky Password that i got from the giveawayoftheday site and previously used the free program Last Pass) .

Each family member uses their own account apart from one computer which we use as a general computer and is used by friends when my son is having a LAN party. :)

Hi Stephen,

exactly how do you do that? Even with a trial of CCP installed I still have each and every CB entry distributed to the whole cluster.

Thanks!

Ralph Bressler I REALLY wanted this to work but I am getting an error on my Windows 7 machine. The program will not run despite restarting the machine and reinstalling both Java and Simidude. Can anyone help?

NRL Hi,

I use Linux as my main system with Windows in a Virtual Machine. Do I have to buy a 2 codes or will 1 code work in both the Windows and Linux programs?

Thanks,

Torsten Uhlmann Norman, you just need to buy one license.

@Ralph: I check this on my Windows 7. Do you get any errors? Did you restart the machine?

Richard Stone What was the answer to licensing. Per machine? Per user?

Also, does this require admin privileges?

Torsten Uhlmann Richard,

Simidude is licensed per user. You need one license if you want to connect 3 machines.

If you are two that want to build individual networks which are not connected and independent of each other you need two licenses.

You need admin privileges on Windows in install it. You don't need them to run it- but go ahead and test for yourself, please.

Thanks,
Torsten.

DroidLuvr I've tried to follow the conversation above but it seems unclear to me, Is this program able to "filter" what it copies or does it copy everything you cut or copy? My example is similar to a couple of comments above: I use a clipboard manager (ClipMate) which captures everything I cut or copy to its program and I want this to continue. I only want selected items to go to Simidude...

Is this configurable or does it just grab everything that goes to the clipboard? If so, will it prevent these c/c items from going to ClipMate?

As much as I would like Simitude's functionality available, I wouldn't be interested if it interferes with my ClipMate captures...

Torsten Uhlmann DroidLuvr: You can disable Simidude's clipboard monitoring and just drag items into the Simidude window. These items would be files, folders, a url from a browser, etc.

You can also disable/enable the monitoring of text, files or images that are copied to the clipboard selectively.

But that's all filtering that's available.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

Amit 1) Can it copy text and files to any virtual machine application too - like virtualbox and vmware ? Both ways - between host machine and the guest virtual machine ? Without use of anything else - like eg. installation of guest additions in virtualbox or vmware - as I get some problems in installing the guestadditions on some vms.
And guestadditions is required for sharing folders between host machine and guest machine in both virtualbox and vmware.

2) For usage on say 3 virtual machines (on a single machine) + 2 computers - will 1 license be needed or more ? All of the same user ?

Thanks.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Amit,

1) yes. It works best if the VMs all use bridged IP addresses. If you use NAT then you might need to tell Simidude the IP addresses it needs to connect to. Also make sure to check the firewalls in your VMs to allow incoming traffic.

2) One license is enough.

I encourage you to download the trial now and see if it suits your needs and only buy if it works for you.

Kind Regards,
Torsten.

Gunderic Hagen I got this software. Apart of its usefulness the customer service that comes together with it is exceedingly good. You can't beat that.

Ralph Bressler I will second the comment made by Gunderic Hagen above. When I retired an XP machine and replaced it with a Win7 machine, Simidude would not install correctly. I had installed it previously on another Win7 machine with no problems. Torsten suggested a problem with the ports and the problem WA quickly fixed. I find the program is the quickest way to transfer information between machine. It is even better than a Homegroup. The price today is a STEAL so grab it!

Stephen Brown A friend recommended Simidude a couple of years ago. After checking out the demo I decided it was well worth getting so I purchased a copy. (I think it may have been a multi licence for up to three computers) but can't remember. I have a backed up copy of the registration code and an executable, but can't find my email receipt.

I don't know whether the registration code is just for that particular version or whether it was upgradeable for life?

To the developer:

Can you clarify whether my licence is likely to be a lifetime licence or just for the version I purchased? Thank you.

Torsten Uhlmann Hi Stephen,

I happily clarify:

First, one license is enough for any number of computers you want to connect together. See the license as person bound rather than computer bound.

Second, the license you received is still valid. I do reserve the right to at some point in the future charge an upgrade fee, but this is not planned yet. So all licenses purchased in the past are still valid.

Does that help?
Torsten.

Stephen Brown Hi Torsten, thank you for clarifying. That goes without saying i.e. If you made a significant improvement or added more major features I'd happily upgrade.

I've found the program so easy to use and the headaches I used to get when trying to connect my computer together (using windows system) for sharing or just managing my files on the four computers I have running at the moment (soon to add two more once I've rebuilt them) are gone. I highly recommend this program to anyone, especially at the price its selling for at the moment. Even at full price its worth it.

Have you considered adding a cloud based function to this program. You could include a small amount (say 1GB or more) of online storage space for users to utilize.. It seems like 'cloud' is the buzz word of this year and IMO would be a useful addition to the tools included in this package. (Just a suggestion).

Thanks again for your feedback.

Regards

VLM To be clear - I install Simidude on EACH computer on the network that I wish to include in the sharing. If all the computers are mine, then one license is required. For each additional user, an additional license is required. Then Simidude goes out and "finds itself" on all the computers on the network, somehow establishes a common clipboard somewhere, and sharing begins.

Does this sound correct?

Torsten Uhlmann @Stephen and the other commenters above- thanks for the kind words and for the suggestions!

@VLM:
Yes, you have to install Simidude on each computer that you want to participate in the sharing. For all these computers you need one license. If for instance you want to use Simidude on your connected computers and some other person wants to use it on their connected computers, that would require a second license. So, almost all of the time you are fine with one license.

Simidude works on a peer to peer basis, there is no server to whom all computers connect but by sending a broadcast signal to all computers within your local network it detects which one has Simidude installed and the right credentials and than sends updates to all these computers.

Torsten.

SumWun Else This app seems to do a lot of the same sorts of things that a freeware app called "Synergy" does (it's on SourceForge). Synergy allows you to use one mouse to move across multiple displays from multiple machines. One machine has to be designated as the server, the others are clients, and they all "talk" to each other via IP networking. You can tell it that your Mac is on top right, Windows 8 on top left, your old XP box on the bottom left, and your Ubuntu machine is on the bottom right. The mouse moves seamlessly across all four machines--and you can copy/paste from one machine to another. Can't drag/drop files directly, but anybody doing this can probably figure out how to move files around pretty easily.

How is this app better/different than what I described?

Torsten Uhlmann Hi SumWun Else,
Synergy seems to be more like a tool to control different machines with one keyboard/mouse/monitor.

Simidude is a tool to sychronize the clipboard contents across different computers that you do not control through one keyboard- of course you can also use it with Virtual Machines.
You can also use it to send files across your network in an easy way, which can also be done with a network share of course...

It's a different use case.

Torsten.

Matt Hi Torsten.

- An 'Always On Top' button would be really good.
- Two tool tips to the right of the textbox aren't working.

A couple of questions:

1. How long has 1.x been in development?
2. When is 2.x expected?
3. How did the unusual name come about?

Thanks.

Torsten Uhlmann @Bill: Simidude is designed to work within your local network, not over the internet. It also does a pretty good job in sending the clipboard content from one machine to all others, something you can't do with DropBox.

@Jeff: My guess is you already had Simidude installed on your machine in the past. Please contact me at contact@agynamix.de, I'll send you instructions how to resolve that.

@zee: Thanks for the suggestions
- 1.x is in development for a couple years now. I did incremental updates that didn't merit a 2.x
- 2.x can't say
- Simidude means "Similar Dude", the same guy/thing on two ends.

Sorry for answering late,
Torsten.
