Trouble with extended desktop on server side

Trouble with extended desktop on server side

Postby phuz » 2010-11-19 12:03

I run a laptop that uses an extended desktop to the left of my laptop screen.
When I VNC into the laptop, I see the desktop of the laptop, but the mouse cursor gets placed on the extended session and I have no control of the session.
I have googled the crap out of this but can't find anyone that has had a similar issue.
I am running 1.0.8.2

Thanks a bunch. I will give it a try in a couple hours!
But I am only looking to see my main desktop, not the extended desktop.

To reiterate, when I VNC into the machine, I can see the main desktop, but the mouse cursor is placed on the extended desktop and I am unable to get it back to the main desktop.

Update: With the new version, it works properly and shows/controls the main desktop and leaves the extended desktop alone.
Thanks.
