Realtime Soft Forum
You have two options:

1 Run the client from a machine with two monitors and use the /span command line switch when you start the terminal services client. You will then have the remote machines “dual” monitors displayed locally as “dual” monitors. The /span assumes the two monitors are physically side-by-side and the same resolution.

2 Use the width and height command line switches for terminal services. /w:xxxx where xxxx is the width resolution and /h:yyyy where yyyy is the height resolution.

So if you run the following on a machine with a single monitor:

%SystemRoot%system32mstsc.exe /w:2560 /h:1024

Your Remote Desktop will run inside a window that is scrollable vertically and horizontally with the above dimensions. This will allow you to see and interact with the windows that were on the second monitor of the host PC.
