Summary

This article describes how to configure Extended Multi-Monitor Support on a Macintosh client.

Background

Administrators can configure extended multi-monitor support for users either on a per-server or per-client device basis.

Procedure

Use the following procedure to configure extended multi-monitor support on the server.

Open the default.ica file, typically located in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\SiteName\conf\.
Add the following parameters to the Applications section:
DesiredHRES= Width of session, between 120 and 8000 pixels
DesiredVRES= Height of session, between 80 and 6000 pixels
DesiredHPos= Horizontal position of the top-left corner of the desktop session
DesiredVPos= Vertical position of the top-left corner of the desktop session
DesiredWinType=16
Save the file and restart the server.
Use the following procedure to configure extended multi-monitor support on the client device.

Open the Configuration file, located in a user's home folder at Username/Library/Preferences/CitrixICAClient/
Add the following parameters to the Thinwire 3.0 section:
DesiredHRES= Width of session, between 120 and 8000 pixels
DesiredVRES= Height of session, between 80 and 6000 pixels
DesiredHPos= Horizontal position of the top-left corner of the desktop session
DesiredVPos= Vertical position of the top-left corner of the desktop session
DesiredWinType=16
Save the file.
Changes take effect the next time a user connects to a desktop session from the client device.

“Remember the following when configuring extended multi-monitor support:

The numbers of pixels specified for the DesiredHRES and DesiredVRES parameters must add up to the total resolution of monitors in a user's setup. For example, if users have 2 monitors, each with a resolution of 1024x768, specify 2048 for DesiredHRES and 768 for DesiredVRES.
By default, both the DesiredHPos and DesiredVPos parameters are set to 0, where "0,0" are the coordinates assigned to the top left-hand corner of the top left-hand monitor in a user's setup and specify a desktop sessions' top left-hand position on screen. To position a desktop sessions' top left-hand corner elsewhere on-screen, specify other coordinates for these parameters.
The DesiredWinType parameter must be set to 16.”
