RDP dual monitors to dual monitors

Dear All,

I have a dual monitor setup on a PC, and I want to rdp in to a PC with dual monitors, I want to remote in and see both monitors active.

I have tested this via RDP and amended the RDP file to display;

span monitors:i:1

as I want the span option to appear but this does not work.

Is there any other rdp software that will mirror the dual monitor setup I have setup in the office at home (it just does not work at all, i only see one screen in the office and one at home).

Please help

Thanks

I forgot to say that both PC's have the latest version of RDP even though one is XP and one is Windows 7

Thanks

RDP doesn't show you the same display as the PC you are RDP'ing into. It rather opens a new session, and you can use both of the displays of the PC you are working on. During that time the session is locked on the remote PC, provided it isn't a terminal server.

If you want to see the same display as the remote user sees, you need to use something else. In Windows there is "Remote Assistance" (but I don't know whether that can use multiple displays), Otherwise you could use TeamViewer, it can show both displays remotely. For private use it is free:

But logmein is no longer free, and you get less features, unless you opt for more than one logmein product.
