My work gave me three laptops because not one of them can access all the resources I need. So I have to balance my workflow around these three machines.

    This is something I haven't heard of

    What exactly requires more than one machine? Apart from the situation where you may have one from your Employer and the one from your Client IT team

    @asgs could be that he needs to have multiple vpn tunnels open and client side vpn do mot usually have support for multiple concurrent tunnels.

    The perfect reason to use synergy. I already use multiple machines out of desire too.

    This is bullshit.

    I had a similar issue - supporting clients requires a full tunnel VPN. I get around that by using a proxy machine. the full tunnel cannot disable the lan (vpn traffic flows through the default gateway). So - use a vm to vpn, and ssh into it from your laptop on the same network. Then add ssh port forward ftw.

    Damn having 3 machines is kinda cool too...
    I just have one laptop and I know how expensive these get

    I have a similar problem but with 2 laptops (main work station is a macbook, but i have a dell latitude for a c# project no1 else wanted to take on)

    it really is a pain - cant imagine juggling between 3 😅

    Never had the issue to this extreme, but I do now have to use a Intel MacBook Pro and an M1 MacBook Pro. Most of the time we have systems running on Parallels!
