I am trying to use my Early 2009 iMac as a secondary monitor for my Late 2011 Macbook Pro. I have linked them using the iMac's MiniDisplay Port and the Macbook's Thunderbolt with a Male to Male MiniDisplay Port cable. I have tried CMD + F2 and nothing happens.


Can anyone confirm if infact I need a Thunderbolt cable?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
