I have a Director who wants to remote into a PC connected to two TVs. He needs to maintain the current session (so the screens don't drop to login prompt). RDP won't work and RA is too inconvenient (he needs to be able to keep a consistent connection). I tried TeamViewer also, but he doesn't want to share his screen remotely, he wants to remotely control the server's screens.

 

Before I go any further, I wanted to check with the pros.

 

I would rather not go the route of remote KVM because its such a headache. Could I use a VNC server?

 

Thanks in advance for all the top-tier advice and tips!

I got everything working using TightVNC. Only issue I had was convenience. The only way to have a fully protected machine is to have VNC authentication (remote protection) and a local-user authentication (local protection). That said, the VNC server provides all the required functions I needed!
