Arguable dual monitors are supported except for the fact that when you maximize a MS program window you get it spread across the two screens. So if you are happy with manual resizing you should definitely give it a try.
- Download and install Xquartz
- Open XCode and make sure to agree to install additional components. From Terminal run:
- Download the gzipped distribution for rdesktop/
- Uncompress it
- Open Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
- Type the below classical commands. You will be prompted for your password when you run the third command
./configure make sudo make install
- Run the command to connect to your windows server. It will prompt you for your Windows user password and then it will open the Remote Windows Desktop across your both monitors.
rdesktop -f -d myWindowsDomain -u myWindowsUserName -p - my.windows.server.addressAlternatively you can create a command which you can double click. Just create a file named my.windows.server.address.command with the below content:
#!/bin/bash # my.windows.server.address.xrdp /usr/local/bin/rdesktop -f -d myWindowsDomain -u myUser myComputer.fqdn & exit 0Then and make it executable:
chmod +x my.windows.server.address.xrdpNote that once the script exits the terminal screen will remain there unless you have configured your Terminal to close after an exit command is issued (Terminal Menu/Preferences/Settings/Shell/When the shell exists:Close the window)
You could also use Applications/Automator option "Run Shell Script" and save the result as my.windows.server.address.app which you can then have in your dock as a handy icon to quickly access your remote server.
