Regardless of the display protocol, you can use multiple monitors with a View desktop.

If you use PCoIP, the display protocol from VMware, you can adjust the display resolution and rotation separately for each monitor. PCoIP allows a true multiple-monitor session rather than a span mode session.

A span mode remote session is actually a single-monitor session. The monitors must be the same size and resolution, and the monitor layout must fit within a bounding box. If you maximize an application window, the window spans across all monitors. Microsoft RDP 6 uses span mode.

In a true multiple-monitor session, monitors can have different resolutions and sizes, and a monitor can be pivoted. If you maximize an application window, the window expands to the full screen of only the monitor that contains it.

This feature has the following limitations:

If you use PCoIP, the maximum number of monitors that you can use to display a View desktop is 4. When 3D feature is enabled, up to 2 monitors are supported with a resolution of up to 1920x1200. Pivoted monitors are supported, but stacked monitors are not.

If you use Microsoft RDP 7, the maximum number of monitors that you can use to display a View desktop is 16.

If you use Microsoft RDP display protocol, you must have Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 6.0 or higher installed in the View desktop.

If you use a View desktop in local mode, no remote display protocol is used. You can use up to 2 monitors in span mode.
