DC2N4-LC and Tiny C2N Monitor

I’ve already commented on the fact that the Tiny C2N Monitor is a spoofing/monitor device intended to follow the C2N wherever it is attached to. Hence I advised it is possible to connect it to a DC2N device as well.

In particular, I’ve been asked a few times whether that’s true for DC2N4-LC. You might be wondering what’s the point of having a graphic monitor if the DC2N4-LC client has already got a graphic monitor within the GUI client. The answer to the latter is simple: the GUI client is not available and probably won’t be available for all OSes and architectures, where the commandline version is likely to be cross-compiled for a number of architectures.
Therefore asking the former question, whether Tiny C2N Monitor can be connected to a DC2N4-LC, has some relevance for those who know they will be primarily using an architecture for which the GUI client is not available.
The answer to such question is: obviously yes! Here’s my test setup showing how that is done in practice:
