This product, although not free, should be checked out.
I ran the demo at work labs and it worked great for the two monitors. Demo didn't allow more than that.
You can't control two desktops within a remote desktop session. You must be using the video driver, not the VGA driver of terminal services to start the primary server. This kind of sucks because I would love to install a license on my office PC, remote desktop into it, but have it connect to another lab PC to get me two monitors extending my remote desktop one.
Secondly, it's not very configurable nor secure in corporate environments. There's no encryption I don't think, and there's definitely no easy way to specify which computers to allow what primary servers to connect secondary viewers. Every computer that installs the secondary viewer software, any primary server can connect to them to extend their window space. But, of course, having more than one primary server on the network presents a problem for contentions.
This is my review. I don't work for Maxivista or have any relationship with them.
