i don't know if this is even possible or not, but maybe someone can help.

I have 2 laptops and a projector. I need to clone the laptop display that's hooked up to the projector to the other laptop.

So I would have 1 laptop screen with (ex. a .ppt presentation) and another laptop that would need to be connected to the one running the .ppt presentation, all while displaying on a projector.

I know it doesn't make sense, but it's been requested and I've never heard of such a thing. I know it's possible with a seperate external monitor or a TV, but another laptop?

Thanks!

Network video streaming across LAN is all i can think of. However the client computer would have to start the stream so it would not be the clone that you are looking for. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/streaming.html

lo and behold there is such a thing http://www.maxivista.com/
