Remote Control with Dual Monitors

By john ·
Does anyone know of a way to remote control a computer with dual monitors and be able to view both of the monitors from a remote location. Can this be done with PcAnywhere, Remote Desktop, ect.?

Any Remote software will work. I prefer PC Anywhere. On the system with the two monitors, go through the software running them and find the section where you can create "HOTKEYS"

Hotkey for Monitor 1 = CTRL+*
Hotkey for monitor 2 = CTRL+/

That way, when you remotely access that pc, you just press the hotkey to switch different displays if need be.

Good luck

We use Computer Associates remote control software. It allows you to scroll across both screens smoothly. See the product description here:

Remote Administrator can also handle access to both monitors. I am assuming that you have the second monitor as an extension of the first monitor either to the right or below. With Remote Administrator you simply move your cursor to the edge where the monitor 2 is located and the screen will auto scroll to monitor 2.

The only problem I have found is that you cannot use full screen to view the remote site. For instance the remote is set to 2048x768 and your PC accessing the remote is 1024x768. The effective resulting display is too small to be readable.
