I have a Windows Hyper-V Server setup. On the Hyper-V Server we have Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit installed. On Ubuntu it comes with Remmina RDP client by default. I like the default RDP client, however I can't use two monitors with it. Both monitors are installed on my Ubuntu 13.10 32 Bit system. Both monitors work great inside Ubuntu, I just need them both to work with an RDP client. Is there any other RDP client that will work with two monitors? Or can I configure remmina to work with them both?
You can run
rdesktop -f or run
rdesktop -f <width>x<height>.
Enable fullscreen mode. This overrides the window manager and causes the rdesktop window to fully cover the current screen. Fullscreen mode can be toggled at any time using Ctrl-Alt-Enter.
-g Desktop geometry (WxH). If geometry is the special word "workarea", the geometry will be fetched from the extended window manager hints property _NET_WORKAREA, from the root window. The geometry can also be specified as a percentage of the whole screen, e.g. "-g 80%".
Recently I read about FreeRDP. I should support multimonitors, but I have no experiences with it.
You'll have to compile FreeRDP from sources because Multi-Monitor support is only available in versions >= 1.1.
Visit this page to get instructions and a list a build dependencies.
Then you'll be able to start a connection from a terminal like this:
xfreerdp /multimon /u:username /v:server_hostname:server_port
