Re: [PLUG] Brighter plans: energy efficient, reliable firewall hardware

That's a Linux question (i.e. software) so as long as Debian 9 has the right tools you should be find for what you want to do.

OK, this is getting interesting again. Both my monitors have DVI-D.

The unit on Amazon I mentioned

has 2 HDMI ports. I'm wondering if I can run both my monitors on that?

Of course, I'm sure that works.

But I want to run a separate username/password login session for each
monitor. Something like
startx Display1 and then in a separate login
startx Display2.

Are there resources for configuring multi-headed displays like this? Can
the Fitlet do it?

If your monitors have a DVI-D input, all you need is a DVI-D to HDMI
passive cable. This is what I use between my old Dell monitor with only
VGA and DVI-D inputs and Raspberry Pi.
