    Remote Desktop & Two Monitors (XP Pro SP2 5.1.2600)

    I have a two monitor set-up with Windows XP SP2 (call it System A). From another location (call it System [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img], also with a two monitor set-up, I want to use Remote Desktop Connection. With System A is running in its 2-monitor configuration, I have not been able to figure out a way to remotely connect to A from System B and have A's two screens be included in B's remote session. The best I can do is get just one screen in the remote session on B. Does anyone know if it's possible to include both of A's screens in B's remote session, and if so, how?

    Thanks!

    Do you have Download details: Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client 6.0) for Windows XP (KB925876)? It is the lates and supposedly supports multiple monitors (be sure to read up).

    I ran across references to RDC 6.0, but it appears that the remote system has to be running Vista for the new features (for example, dual monitors) to work.

    It is a small download (only 1.5 MB). So, it can't hurt to try. Maybe the documentation is not 100% accurate.
