Anyone know of a decent remote desktop application that can support dual monitors besides netop or pcanywhere?

Thanks in advance!

I use Remote Admin and it does not work with dual monitors, all you get is the primary monitor (monitor 1)

Real VNC would do fine for you.
Why do you need dual monitoring?

we were using netop and don't want to anymore.  Crazy risky licensing that we want to avoid all together.  Execs have dual monitor - desktop spread over 2 screens and want it from home as well.

I use the buit-in windows XP Remote Desktop, and it supports dual monitors very well. If you have XP, that's the best I found so far.

Do you want the same view of VNC to be shown in multiple monitors? Then its not the function of the Software.
Its the mechanism of your Hardware. there are hardware for this purpose.

XP's Remote desktop is a good solution but I am not sure of its maximum connection permission.
Yo might need additional licence for that. By default its 2 connections at a time without license.
