    I have 4 computers currently soon to be a 5th that’ll be setup as a 2012r2 server with some win7 vm’s running on them (As a student I can get server software for free off dream spark) I plan for my existing computers to be reconfigured to use the aforementioned server at that time. I am currently testing the software to accomplish certain goals and NoMachine looked promising but then I hit a wall.

    Ideally I want to have each of my (non-server) computers to have their own desktop for use, mix in a virtual desktop manager for multiple seperate workspaces, each to have a remote session of some sort to the other computers so I can work on any machine from any machine by changing desktops in the virtual desktop environment. However I also want to take that further and have 2 VM’s running on the server to hack as (for lack of a better description) a global computer where anything done on that vm I could walk into any room in my house glance at the screen of the computer in that room and see the exact same thing I’d see on any of the other screens (if I figure this out I have also toyed with the idea of a raspberry pi for the kitchen). I am very big on audio & video and VNC doesnt cut it for that so enter NoMachine.

    Test one bedroom computer, NoMachined into bedroom computer (gigabit ethernet on one wifi ac 5.2GHZ on the other) almost flawless performance(test passed, getting excited), test 2 connect laptop to same bedroom pc that the livingroom pc was NoMachined too(multiple issues) first off doing this killed the connection to the living room pc (it looks to be programmed to do this and in certain usage scenarios this would be a feature but I need both to be able to be connected at the same time, perhaps using multicast to lessen network burden). Also the machine I was connecting to started stalling out after the other computer was forced to disconnect to the point where I couldnt even pull up task manager and had to force powercycle it.

    Also the audio node service like to make any of the computers its on beep like you pressed an invalid key every so often (seems like a glitch sometimes its like every 10 seconds other times its rare and sporadic).

    So my questions/guidance request/ and possibly feature request, is there a way or can a way be made to have multiple clients logged into the same machine? Can the forced disconnect be made more graceful? Also that beeping is there a solution, I pulled up the volume mixer and saw it was the ‘NoMachine node (something or other)’ causing it, I manually muted it (this being on the machine thats getting logged into) and notice the client side machines no longer got any audio so had to un-mute.

    Despite everything mentioned herein I have been quite impressed and hope this can be made to work.

    The free version of NoMachine allows one connection at a time. So when you connect a second time from another client to the same server, a dialog should pop up notifying you of this. If you want to be connected multiple times to the same server computer, you should try the evaluation of Enterprise Desktop. This will allow unlimited connections to the same server.
