    Hello,

    We have been asked to come up with a solution for access to some workstations in a remote manner.  We have previously used NoMachine (free) client/server in an academic environment.

    Q1: I was wondering how many connections can be made to the same machine at the same time?  My understanding is just ONE for the free client. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    Q2: If there is already a connection from a guest to host, does this preclude a second guest from logging on, or does the second guest disconnect the first – in essence bouncing the first user off?

    Thanks

    With the free version installed on the remote computer you want to access, one connection will be allowed at a time to that end point. On the connecting client, you can install either the free version or Enterprise Client, it’s up to you, and you can start as many connects as you want, but if you want to have more users connected to the same remote computer, that remote computer will require Enterprise Desktop. More details here:

    What’s the difference between the free NoMachine package and Enterprise Desktop Subscription?

    The default behaviour is that if UserA is connected to the remote computer, and UserB tries to connect, UserA will see a pop-up notifying them of the attempt. If UserA ignores the notification, they will be bounced off.

    Thanks.  Just to clarify, if both users (UserA and UserB) are in userspace (not rootspace/admins) will UserB bounce UserA off the host?  If so, is there a way to prevent this behaviour?
