I am currently investigating options for remotely controlling some of our corporate desktops, which unfortunately run Fedora Linux. I’ve trialled a bunch of solutions including VNC, xRDP, ZohoAssist but haven’t found anything which works as well as NoMachine (hoorah!) in terms of performance.
Where NoMachine seriously falls short is in the marketing space. From the website, I just can’t figure out which tools supports which features, and with so many mentions of “remote access” I had assumed that were was a way to access these clients remotely, without having to punch holes in our firewall, establish VPN or be on the same physical network, but for the life of me I can’t fathom whether a true remote access service exists as part of the enterprise subscription.
So, can any of you kind people please clarify whether NoMachine Enterprise would allow some of my users to access their Linux desktop from another machine, without needing to give them a VPN or punch through our internet-facing firewalls, or am I making up features NM doesn’t have yet?

sorry you couldn’t find the information that you were looking for. Submitting some feedback to the webmaster (contact us form in the footer) would be of help so we can make some improvements to the right pages 😉
I would suggest that what you’d need is Enterprise Desktop. This will give you access to the physical Linux desktops you mention.
From what you’ve described, what would be a better fit is the Network service we are creating. More about this is available here: https://www.nomachine.com/FR07J02731. With Network, you will be able to access your remote computer without needing to know its IP address. So once installed on the remote host, you won’t have to worry about whether the computer is sitting behind a firewall, or whether certain ports are open, and so forth.January 29, 2019 at 14:58 #21192
Thanks for the timely response, much appreciated. I’ll be sure to submit some constructive musings regarding the website.
In terms of the Enterprise Desktop product, I’ve trialled this and it works well. It sounds like the Network tool is potentially the missing link we’re looking for. My need for a solution is quite urgent, we’re actively using one solution at the moment which isn’t up to the task but I can’t realistically deploy Enterprise without the Network features.
If the Network product has made it to closed/public beta, I’d be very interested in an opportunity to test/feed back.
Aside from that, do you have any indicators of when Network might go live?

NoMachine Network is in the last phase of development. I can’t give you an exact ETA. We are happy to add you to a beta or testing program – you can also sign up to receive notifications/updates regarding this functionality using the ‘notify me’ check box on the Feature Request page.January 31, 2019 at 09:39 #21222
Thank you, that would be great. We have at least a couple of very enthusiastic users here would be glad to test the Network utility.
Will wait to hear from you.
