remote viewing multiple monitors

we have a person with 2 computers.
one downstairs, one upstairs.
the downstairs computer has 4 monitors.

they want to be able to go upstairs and see EXACTLY the same thing on 4 monitors that they see downstairs!

any ideas?

Assuming the 4 monitors upstairs are capable of the same resolution[s] as the 4 monitors downstairs, just connect both computers to the same gigabit network and use Remote Desktop.

we tested this with:

Windows 7 Pro on local machine with dual monitors
started RDP with "use all my monitors" box checked

Windows XP with dual monitors on remote machine

only monitor 1 from remote machine shows on monitor 1 locally.....any ideas?

You need to check that box on the Display tab in the Remote Desktop 'Options' of the XP machine, too.  After you check it, go back to the General tab and click the Save button.

I presume on the Experience tab of both machines you have selected LAN (10 Mb or higher).
