can we see dual monitors of raspberry pi 4 in vnc viewer?

Sun Jul 21, 2019 4:21 pm

As we know the raspberry pi 4 has dual HDMI monitors supported. However I am using without hdmi (Headless setup) through VNC viewer. So I am trying to fit dual screens in vnc viewer so that I can switch different tasks in VNC viewer itself.

status: Currently VNC shows one screen.

Goal : Display two screens of raspberry pi 4 in vnc viewer screen.

advantage: So that headless setup users can have benefit of two different screens in one monitor.

I suspect that is not possible with current implementations of VNC.
