OS X Screen Sharing, multiple monitors

OS X Mavericks: Screen Sharing using this procedure:


Works Ok, but... Mac 1 has 2 monitors, Mac 2 has one monitor.

Sharing Mac 1 screen with Mac 2 shows both Mac 1 monitors on Mac 2
Sharing is initiated from Mac 2

How do I select which Mac 1 monitor to show (and fill Mac 2 screen)?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't use screen sharing because it isn't encrypted.  It's also got fewer features.

I do occasionally use Apple Remote Desktop (ARD), which will connect to both an unencrypted Screen Share and the encrypted Remote Managment session.  When you connect with ARD, you will normally see both screens on a Mac with 2 monitors.  After you've connected, you can select which monitor you wish to see, by clicking the icons on menu of the shared window.

Looks good, but a bit pricey...

Just to be sure -  does ARD support screen sharing as OS X does, allowing each of two (in my case) screens to control a common application. I will use screen sharing as a teaching tool with individual students.

ARD does allow choosing which screen to control, yes. I believe the built in screen sharing does too via a button in the menubar... But if you're doing this stuff a lot you'll want the ARD app and I think you could get it cheaper via an educational channel.
PS: ARD uses the same on-switch as regular screen sharing does (in sharing system preferences) but also allows other features like pulling system profiles.

Thanks much for your help - looks like ARD is a winner.
ARD is $79 from the app store.  Don't pay the $199 or $299 educational price for a DVD/CD
