I hope someone can shed some light on this.
For years I have used Remote Desktop for Windows (using the RDP protocol) to connect to Windows servers and workstations alike. One feature it has always had in its favour, is the ability to serve up the remote connection on the accessing client to either a pre-defined resolution, or 'full screen', with the resolution reverting back on the remote host, when logged in to that locally later. I have never been able to find software for the Mac platform that does the same thing (despite trying many VNC based clients, etc).
To explain what I want, I'll detail the scenario for what I'm trying to achieve. I'm taking some time off work later this week, and want to start having a crack at iOS / Objective-C programming. I have a MacBook Air with a 1440 x 900 display. I could just sit and work at this, but my Windows PC has 2 x Full HD res screens (1920 x 1080), and is more comfortable to work at. I would much rather be able to remote in to the MacBook Air from here, get the benefit of at least 1 of these screens being used (and ideally 2), at full res with 1 to 1 pixel scaling (I.e. no rescaling). If I connect to my Windows 7 desktop at work with RDC, this can be done no problem at all - it alters the remote resolution to match my local PC (or a window size I request), and allows the support of two screens, even though my work PC only has one.
Does anyone know if any such software exists for the Apple platform on the Server side that allows this, and a Windows client on the client side? If I use VNC, I have to set the resolution to what I want on the Mac (which could be impossibly high) and then I don't think two screens are supported. I last tried all this about a year back, so please forgive and educate me if things have changed - I thought I'd tap in to the great knowledge out there before wasting hours trying products I've tried before, only to find nothing has changed..... (I hoped Citrix's history in the RDP with MS stuff might have some direction on a Mac version, but couldn't establish that from their site)
Many thanks guys :D
