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 1920 X 1200. 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.
