First configure the IP for Yosemite on router, since the Archlinux takes the 221, Yosemite may use 220 for its fixed ip.
I use ArchLinux as the synergy server, so first install synergy via:
$ sudo pacman -S synergy
I want to place Yosemite at the right of the ArchLinux, So just configure the
/etc/hosts like following.
$ tail /etc/hosts # For setting Synergy 10.0.0.220 Yosemite.lan Yosemite

For easily configure the synergy, download qsynergy.
$ sudo pacman -S qsynergy
Then store its configuration to the
Start the server and enable the server.
# systemctl enable synergys@mary # systemctl start synergys@mary
Download the SynergyKM from http://synergykm.com/, and configure the SynergyKM connected to 10.0.0.221.

Now place the Yosemite at the left of the ArchLinux, your mouse and keyboard could be freely switching from 2 machines.
