    Hi,

    I am new NX user. Previously used VNC for years to access the linux box from Win laptop.

    Here are my problems.

    1)  IT folks created VM and issued me IP connect via nomachine.  Downloaded/installed nomachine (likely the newest version) from

    http://www.nomachine.com/downloads

    Connected.  Got a horrible resolution on  UBUNTU  linux running in VM.  After this, was advised to create the custom connection via the link on nomachine GUI window.  It prompted me about what kind of window mgr I want (GNOME,  KDE, ….).  Picked GNOME, connected. Got better resolution and  was able to change display resolution via UBUNTU/GNOME  display settings.

    Played with linux for a while  and then closed nomachine windows client.

    2).   Found  my old session in form of icon on the screen and identified it by IP address.  Connected. However it looked like an absolutely new one. I left few UBUNTU terminals running and have not  found them. Also the resolution was not the same I configured  via  UBUNTU/GNOME settings 🙂

    3)  Tried few times with the same result .

    4) I was issued another  VM with another IP (xx.x.xx.121) before and also tried to play with it and connected few times.  Now I have VM ( good one) with IP = xx.x.xx.142

    In the GUI window “Recent connection” I can see  4(four) sessions with IP=xx.x.xx.121 and only one with IP=xx.x.xx.142.

    So I have no idea  how many sessions with IP=xx.x.xx.142 I have 🙂

    5)   And the last . Today morning I picked  the session with IP=xx.x.xx.142  and  was rejected with  “OOPS :Reached the  maximum of concurrent virtual  sessions ….”.

    Can you confirm whether you are connecting to a 3.5.0 server or a version 4 because this is not clear. From what you write it sounds like you are connecting to a 3.5.0, but it could also be a version 4 which has been configured to emulate a server 3.x.

    Just to clarify what you are seeing in the Recent Connections list. These represent the connection files, and they are not a representation of how many sessions you have running on the server, or how many you are allowed to have. They simply represent the number of connections that you have run to a given server. (Step 2 here: https://www.nomachine.com/how-to-run-a-virtual-desktop-session). You have 4 different connection files for xx.x.xx.121 and only one with IP= xx.x.xx142.

    You can click on one of them to connect to the server indicated in the connection information (Otherwise, inserting the IP in the white field evertime will create a new connection file). You will be prompted to log in. Once authenticated you will be presented with a choice of desktops. If you have a Gnome session already running, you will see it listed there. See Step 5 in the link just mentioned.

    picked  the session with IP=xx.x.xx.142  and  was rejected with  “OOPS :Reached the  maximum of concurrent virtual  sessions …..

    That means exactly that. On server .142 you have reached the maximum allowed. To be able to provide further advice, we would need to know what product and version you have installed on both the servers you mention.
