    Hi everyone.

    Recently we bought some licenses for NX. I’m launching the NX session like this:

    /usr/NX/bin/nxplayer –session my_template.nx

    But I’d like to grab the active session (if available) automatically, if there are not sessions available just create a new one automatically.

    Is there any option for that?

    Cheers!

    Helfgott.

    Hi.
    Is the ‘active’ session a physical or a virtual desktop? What is the NoMachine product running on the server? Are you using latest NoMachine version?

    Hi @Tor

    The session is established to a virtual desktop.

    Server: Ubuntu 16_04 64b – NX Terminal Server 6.2.4 with nodes (it’s the latest)

    Client: Ubuntu 12_04 with NoMachine 6.2.4_1_i386.deb

    Thanks. If you didn’t change the connection policy on the server, the client will already select automatically the running virtual desktop assuming that (a) the connecting user is the owner of the session, (b) the name of the current session (the one you see in the main client interface) is the same of the one running on the server (the one you see in the list of running desktops) and (c) there is only one session with that name running on the server.
    Can you confirm if all those conditions are met?

    We’ll check it and I’ll come back with an answer.
