Remote Web Workplace and widescreen monitors
JRClose 6/27/2007 4:06:04 PM
I was wondering if anyone were aware of being able to connect to an SBS
server using RWW at resolutions higher than 1600 x 1200, or at widescreen
resolutions. This is a SBS 2003 R2 install.

The resolution you get at the remote computer will only match the best
resolution of the server/workstation you are connecting to (within the scope
of the remote computer's capability)

uh, no, I don't think so. Since RDP is the video driver, it's whatever the
limitation of RDP is.

That being said, you can use wide screen resolutions up to _at least_
1680x1050 in full screen mode. The key is to use full screen to get whatever
your remote monitor can support.

correct.

I'm actually liking using widescreen 1680*1050 (takes getting used to
though, recent acquisition). I am however finding remote connections running
at 1024*768 or even 800*600 are handy when looking at multiple systems.

Yup. I use dual monitors: 1680x1050 and a 1600x1024. I've currently got 6
RDP sessions open - 2 at 1024x768, and 4 at 1440x950.

Re: Remote Web Workplace and widescreen monitors
JRClose 6/29/2007 2:02:07 PM
So if I'm reading this right, the RDP connector has all of these capabilities
(widescreen, high resolution, monitor spanning, etc.). My issue is actually
with Small Business Server's Remote Web Workplace which is based on RDP. I
suppose I should try to post this to the SBS forum also.

Re: Remote Web Workplace and widescreen monitors
"Charlie Russel - MVP" <charlie[ at ]mvKILLALLSPAMMERSps.org> 6/29/2007 2:13:50 PM
you're on the SBS newsgroup.

The one area where RDP is still lame, IMHO, is monitor spanning. For all
intents and purposes, it doesn't. The largest you can go is whatever your
current largest monitor is. And it can be a bit tricky to get RDP to go full
screen on anything but the primary monitor.

Re: Remote Web Workplace and widescreen monitors
"SuperGumby [SBS MVP]" <not[ at ]your.nellie> 6/29/2007 7:17:26 PM
umm, this _IS_ the SBS2003 area

Yes, I am aware of being able to connect to an SBS2003 via RWW at screen
resolutions higher than the native video card is running. Does that answer
your question?

Yup. I realized that it was the SBS forum right when I clicked the Post button.

At the risk of seeming stupid again... when you refer to the "native" video
card, are you talking about the host workstation or the remote worstation?
I'm assuming (uh oh...) that you mean the host workstation, which is running
at 1920 x 1200 on the desktop with a 24" widescreen. The remote (my laptop)
is also running at 1920 x 1200. When I logon to the host with the full screen
setting, the remote desktop comes up at 1600 x 1200 with the black bands on
either side of the screen. The resolution settings on RWW only go up to 1600
x 1200. Is this a limitation of RWW? Am I overlooking something somewhere?

do me a favour, start/run/mstsc, on the 'display' page, does it go to the
sizes you are attempting?

It wouldn't surprise me to find it's a limitation of RDP itself. I can't
find any kb on RDP screen size limits but I don't think it's designed to do
graphics arts work. Extreme resolution and colour depth takes a whack of
bandwidth.

1920*1200 is 2.3MB at 8 bit colour. For pity's sake I wouldn't want to use
that across the local LAN.
