Export display of Windows 2000 to multiple machines

I want to export the display of my Windows 2000 machine to multiple monitors/PCs placed at a distance of about 50 meters. Is there a way to do it using ethernet and some software application? Please note that I do not want to use any specialized hardware i.e. VGA extenders, KVM switches etc. The remote machines are only required to view the display; no remote controlling/ administration is rquired.

You could use VNC and disable the remote keyboard and mouse functionality, thus rendering the monitoring station incapable of performing any remote control functions.

You'll need reasonable bandwidth and the service will use resources on the host being observed/controlled, but it's easy to set up and free

Hmmm Interesting. The only thing that comes to my mind software wise would be Laplink or PCAnywhere.

PCAnywhere and Laplink both are primarily for remote administration and therefore quite slow for monitoring.

I want something that gives my functionality like Minicom's "UTP VGA Video Splitter" using software only. (http://www.minicom.com/vsutp.asp)

Actually, I've just seen that you want to export to multiple machines - you'd probably want to use Pc ANywhere as it has conferencing capabilities.

hstiles, why do you suggest PCAnywhere instead of VNC? Since the refered product is actually doesn't provide teleconferencing features, I think VNC should be sufficient enough, it supports multiple platforms, and it's free. About the performance, I haven't tried other softwares beside VNC (and its variants/clones), but according to some review I had, VNC still excel compare to PCAnyWhere, especially in a narrower bandwidth. The one I've heard a good review is RemoteAdmin, but haven't tested it myself.

I use remote admin . I used to use VNC but It doesn't have file transfer capabilities...vnc is great for accessing *nix boxes though...anyways, from what  amirabbas says he needs, VNC is perfect for the job.

Gete,

Pc Anywhere allows 'conferencing' which I assume allows multiple PCs to view/control a single host.
