  • The Java and HTML remote control clients do not offer multiple monitor support.
  • To get full support of all multi-monitor features, you must use HDMI, DVI, or VGA monitor cable. Other cable types may not offer all multi-monitor features.

Multi-Monitor Display

When both the client and host have multiple monitors, host-side monitors can be cloned "one-to-one" to the client. Screens are automatically cloned upon connection.

When using the Client to connect, this "one-to-one cloning" happens automatically upon connection. You can also click the Monitors icon to switch between host-side monitors.

This illustration shows how the host-side monitors are reproduced "one-to-one" on the client computer.
