Can I configure TightVNC or any other VNC server for Windows XP to mirror the second monitor via VNC?

share|improve this question

I just found that after starting tightvnc as app, then I can move it to the second screen by running:

tvnserver -controlapp -sharedisplay 2

When running TightVNC as service, use -controlservice instead of -controlapp.
