I am trying to find out if it is possible to use 2 laptops as dual monitors.  The purpose:  when 2 of our advisors go out to meet with a client at their office location we would want to be able to do a client review where the advisor has the meeting presentation on his laptop and his screen is being cloned on the junior advisors laptop for the client to view.

It doesn't look like the clone feature will work for either of these unless connected to Ethernet or Wireless network.  Many clients wouldn't have wireless internet.  Any other thoughts?

Hi,

You could use something like VNC or Terminalserviceplus (www.terminalserviceplus) to connect from 1 laptop to the other over an Ad-Hoc WLAN connection and view the same application on both machines.

Regards,


RobMobility.

After lots of reaserch it turns out it cannot be done.  With software you can extend your display but you cannot clone it.
