RDP: Using Remote Desktop with Dual Monitors | SplitView

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/10/04

Remote Desktop Protocol (aka RDP) introduced span support in version 6.1, and multimon support in vesion 7.

RDP consists of a server part called Remote Desktop Services, and a client part (MSTSC.EXE, currently called Remote Desktop Connection, previously caled Terminal Services Client).

Because of the server/client split, not all feature combinations are possible.
Hence below a table listing what is possible, and a short explanation of a few features.
From those, I use often: ‘span’, ‘multimon’ and  ‘admin’ (previously called ‘console’).

My intention is to make this info as complete as possible; please comment on things that are wrong or incomplete. Read the rest of this entry »
