    Hi all 🙂

    if the free version doesn’t allow ssh/tunnelling, does it offer any other kind of security over the internet?

    Cheers

    Read our article on encryption: https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00705

    Encryption in the NX protocol is implemented using OpenSSL TLS/SSL.  Since version 4.1 it uses ‘ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256’ as default cipher suite. ‘ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256’ is an AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) block cipher with 128 bits key in GCM (Galois/Counter Mode). RC4 is used as backward compatibility when connecting from or to version 4.0.”

    Btw, you can still tunnel NX over an SSH connection using the free version. You will need to set up SSH appropriately first on the client and server, then connect as per our instructions here: https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00728

    So the Workstation version is only making thing easier for configuring ssh, right?

    So the security offered by the free shouldn’t be too bad for the average joes like me, is it?

    Last: if I’d like to use the Workstation version, do I only need one subscription for running both 1 server and 1 client?

    Many thanks

    You can compare the Workstation and free NoMachine package for yourself 😉 https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00702

    It totally depends on what you want to do. Access to the physical desktop? Or access to a virtual Linux desktop and run up to 4 of these virtual instances? Do you need SSH built in? These are all choices you have to make. Subscriptions control the server software, clients don’t require subscriptions, so choose between NoMachine (server and client together) or the Enterprise Client.
