I have monitors of my two machines side by side and I use them both with a single keyboard/mouse using Synergy+ (now hosted at Google Code) which works great.

But is it possible to use the monitor of my secondary machine as the secondary monitor of my primary? I am on XP so from what I understand I cannot just rdc from secondary to this primary. In any case that would be a different session altogether and I would prefer to be able to extend my desktop over the two monitors.

Any solutions or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

  • "Google Synergy+"? I think you mean just "Synergy+". – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 16 '10 at 6:50
  • @Ignacio: wrong choice of words. Thanks for correction. – Miserable Variable Jun 16 '10 at 7:17

MaxiVista

I don't know any free solutions unfortunately. I wanted to do something similar myself and settled on MaxiVista after I couldn't find any alternative (short of modifying Synergy myself, which I didn't have the patience for).

  • Thanks Matthew. MaxiVista looks good. Do you know of any free solutions? Is there a way to move this question to SuperUser? – Miserable Variable Jun 16 '10 at 7:18
  • High reputation users do that - voted to close (move to superuser) ;) – TomTom Jun 16 '10 at 7:45
