I found the thread on the TightVNC list. It started on 10/28/2002 and was
titled "Virtual Monitor / CRT driver".
Anyway, to this query, I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to
accomplish? If you just want to take control of the laptop sitting next to
you (the way you would if it were another monitor attached to the desktop
PC) I think you are looking for Win2VNC
(http://www.hubbe.net/~hubbe/win2vnc.html). I've used it in the past, but
I'm not sure how well it will work with the newer versions of VNC.
If you're not on somebody's shit list, you're not doing anything worthwhile.
