    Hello,

    I am using the NoMachine Player 5.0.47 to connect to a physical desktop with multiple monitors. It autoruns from command line when I start the PC the player is installed on and opens as a window on my main monitor, presenting the previously known and discovered connections.

    However, I would like it to a open in fullscreen on both monitors without me having to CTRL-ALT-0 out every time and click the corresponding icon after logging in to my remote PC.

    Is this possible with a command line option?

    Additionally, is it possible to specify a previously stored connection the Player should auto-connect to? Right now, I have to double-click on the connection every time despite it being known to the Player (it has my username stored when the login field comes up).

    Best regards!

    – NoMachine player remember last display settings, so when you exit nxplayer with runned fullscreen on all desktop – next relaunch will be start with the same option.

    Is this possible with a command line option?

    – You can run connection file from command line to connect directly to the session. Execute:
    [path_to_player]/nxplayer –session [path_to_session_files]/file.nxs

    Example on linux:
    /usr/NX/bin/nxplayer –sesson ~/Documents/NoMachine/example.nxs

    Additionally, is it possible to specify a previously stored connection the Player should auto-connect to? Right now, I have to double-click on the connection every time despite it being known to the Player (it has my username stored when the login field comes up).

    – You can create new connection and in last panel “Save as” select “Create link on desktop”. Double-clicking on that icon will run specific connection.

    Auto-connect to the the physical session is available in default on NoMachine free version and NoMachine Enterprise Desktop. So you don’t need do extra configuration when you have installed such version.

    If you are using another product from the Enterprise range with profiles enabled – you need to disable enable-multinode rule and all types from class “session” except physical-desktop. Instructions how to do it you can find there: https://www.nomachine.com/DT09K00058#3.
