Windows 7: Remote-Desktop with multiple screens

Remote-Desktop with multiple screens

Hi,

I just discovered the feature to include all my monitors into a remote-desktop-session. This worked just fine when connecting to our terminal-server (Windows Server 2008 R2). But from there, I do normally open a second connection to the computer at my desk (a direct connection is not possible). After that, I have two nested remote-sessions: From my local machine to the terminal-server and from there to my desk.
But on the second connection, the second monitor is not connected: I can check the checkbox "use all monitors", but only one of the two monitors is used for the second connection.

Is this just not supported? Or did I do anything wrong?

Sorry, I should have tested a direct connection before: My desk-machine does not support multiple monitors via a remote-connection :-(
