Is it possible to use VNC to extend a desktop to multiple monitors over the network?

I have a Eee Box an d one other computer, and none of them have a second display port, i want to expand the desktop somehow without buying any new hardware, and if possible no software.

For ZoneOS i need to have hardware support for multiple monitors, or a virtual driver (which i can't find).

Using it right now, but it dosn't allow me to use a single computer ten projec on other.

of course the pay for version is maxivista

This one costs one months food...

Currntly not using linux, will try once i get intel drivers for a older card...

If all you need is extra monitor support, they now sell devices that use USB to VGA ports to extend the desktop. Not sure if your PC can handle it, but I rememeber seeing a device that allows multiple monitors from a USB hub like device. Might be the simplest way, but ultimately, get a better GPU. A Dual monitor GPU can be found online these days for under $50.00. It might not be a gaming rig GPU, but if working on more than one monitor is what you are after, spend some money to get the job done.

The other idea is virtual desktops(not a Virtual Machine) to increase productivity if you need to do multiple things while not needing to see each desktop. Something like YODM or even Microsofts: http://download.microsoft.com/download/whi...wertoySetup.exe

The microsoft one is pretty easy to work with, after installing, just right click the task bar, then go to toolabrs, then "Desktop Manager". You now have 4 desktops in one, with the ability to see all 4 at the same time befoe switching, you just click the one you want to move into.

Virtual Win is also one I forgot about. Its better than the Microsoft Powertoy alternative: http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/

In virtualwin, you can have up to 9 desktops, its portable(just unzip and run, no installation) and move windows to other virtual desktops.
