    Hello,

    I have installed NoMachine on my Windows PC, and have installed the NoMachine Enterprise Client on a Mac.

    However, when I do a search for the Mac (from the Windows PC), it does not appear in the list – and there’s always a connection issue if I enter the hostname and then click connect.

    The PC and Mac are on different subnets, so I’m not sure if I need to adjust something in the NoMachine settings on either the server/client? I’ve had a look but couldn’t see anything obvious.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Alewis,

    you can’t connect from a NoMachine server to an Enterprise Client. Enterprise Client for Mac is installed on the computer you want to connect from. NoMachine Free Edition can be installed on the computer you want to connect to (and also on the computer you want to connect from if you want to). Enterprise Client does not include the server component which is in the Free Edition.

    More about Enterprise Client is here: https://www.nomachine.com/product&p=NoMachine%20Enterprise%20Client

    If you want to be able to “see” your Mac machine from the Windows computer on LAN, you must install NoMachine Free Edition, also, on your Mac. This tutorial will show you the steps 🙂

    The different subnets issue is related to network configuration. If you can ping from Windows to Mac and vice versa then a NoMachine connection will most likely work.

    Regards,
    Tom
