    Hello,

    I'm looking for a Mac OS X and Windows (7) software that will let me share my Windows monitors with my MacBook over LAN. So, I can have a total of three monitors (One MacBook screen and my two dells that are connected to my windows computer). I have seen software for OS X or Windows, but not both. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks,
    Throdne

    Not sure if this is what you want: http://synergy-foss.org/

    I haven't used it myself so can't speak for it personally.

    I have use Synergy and I really like it. But that is not what i'm looking for. I'm looking for something more like screen sharing. not mouse and keyboard. Something more like http://www.maxivista.com/ that will share my two windows monitors for my mac. so, that way my macbook can have three monitors over LAN.

    see what i'm saying now. but thanks.

    haha, Screenrecycler was the mac version I found. You are one the right track. But I need it to be universal between windows and mac maybe even linux. Like run ubuntu off of a flash drive and use if for only screen sharing. But thanks for all your feedback, I'm sure someone will use this info. But, if you do come cross a program like that, please let me know. this is something I would really like to get my hands on.

    Thanks,
    Throdne

    I thought that at first too but their home page mentions using old Windows PCs.

    Adding Linux too will undoubtably make things even more difficult.

    Edit: Appears installing JollysFastVNC which supports Bonjour allows it to work on Windows PC. In that case a VNC client on Linux that supports Bonjour should work also.

    Edit 2: Here you go, should work on Windows and Linux: http://www.screenrecycler.com/help.html
