Multiple displays with VNC for Windows
Fri Jun 6 20:01:01 2003
Rudi from Ultr@VNC http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/ had done some initial work
on the multiple displays. He had some drivers out, but I never could get them to
work properly and I don't think he ever finished them. You could possibly contact
him at their website and see if he ever went further with it.

A display in the unix sense refers to the desktop canvas that windows are drawn on, and to the keyboard and mouse inputs that the display accepts. Usually there is a separate display for each user working concurrently on a multiuser unix machine.
In this sense, WinVNC does not support more than one display per host.
Perhaps your next question, then, will be "How can I get VNC to display windows on other than the primary monitor"? I do think that it is possible, though it is frequently asked.
