Having:

1) A windows 7 PC with three 2560x1440 monitors attached (total resolution of 7680x1440 pixels).

2) An OSX 10.8 Mac Mini with no monitor on it.

What software i need in order to remote control my Mac from PC and fill the three 2560x1440 monitors?

Speed is important. The computers are connected with Gbit Ethernet.

You could do they with a xserver and client (e.g. xming on the windows side) –  Hennes Jan 29 '13 at 19:40
    
Can you please tell me more about how to use xming? –  ShadowHero Jan 29 '13 at 20:05
    
The X windowing system is the way most unix workstations use for graphics. It is a bit confusing since what we use to think of as the client runs what is called the X-server. Other then that it is just a graphical shell. You can use an xserver to connect to a client computer, run programs in the client, and display them on your local monitor. However I have zero OS/X experience, so I just add two links: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System and zen6478.zen.co.uk/image/cap7l.jpg –  Hennes Jan 30 '13 at 10:00

1 Answer 1

Initiate a Remote Desktop Connection (or equivalent connection) to the Mac, then instead of maximizing the window, stretch it to fill the entire screen area.

This (if possible) will just scale the image. –  ShadowHero Feb 1 '13 at 16:00
    
If the Mac is headless, you may be able to adjust the resolution to match your local resolution. –  Kruug Feb 1 '13 at 16:09
    
I tried but the max resolution mac allowed was 1680x1080... I downloaded a software on the mac and I managed to set the resolution needed. The thing is, how to add 2 virtual monitors to mac? –  ShadowHero Feb 1 '13 at 16:12
    
Hmm...looks like it's not possible with the Mini. I apologize. –  Kruug Feb 1 '13 at 16:21
    
No, you just tried to help, thank you! –  ShadowHero Feb 1 '13 at 16:26
