Hi,

We have a win7 VM running in free xen.  We need to be able to take this vm over remotely (not with RDP) and it should be running in a resolution of 1680x1050.

We tried with teamviewer host on the VM but we cannot set the resolution higher then 1280x1024 on the machine.

RDP is not an option.  Is their any other way we can make sure different people on different locations can take over the VM (not at the same time) and have it in high resolution?

we do not want to scale, we want the vm running in 1680x1050 and just run teamviewer host on it. (or any thing else but we would like to use the native 1680 resolution on the VM)

Unlike the VMware Hypervisor, where the virtual machine graphics memory can be changed to support higher resolutions, I believe the max resiolution on a XenServer 5.6/6.0 VM is 1280 x 1024.
