    I’ve got nomachine installed on a few windows and linux hosts and love it.

    I used to use Hummingbird eXceed with XDMCP and it provided one function
    that I don’t see in nomachine (or at least can’t figure out).

    With Hummingbird, Users on a windows host fire up the Xserver then
    run XDMCP which will list out a bunch of available linux hosts, the
    number of users currently logged into each and the load on each.

    This allows them an opportunity to make an intelligent decision as to
    which host they can/should login to. This is done via the Xwilling
    script on the linux hosts

    Can nomachine do this? If so, how?

    Thanks

    XDM is supported but unfortunately at the moment that is a problem affecting the functionality,
    described here https://www.nomachine.com/TR11K04020.
    Server administrators can also add XDM login as a mandatory login method for specific groups of users.
    In the meanwhile we are also investigating how the functionality can be improved, for example
    to better integrate with the host environment.
    Regarding Xwillings, as far as we know, this file is only used by XDM, while we would like to
    offer a wider range of choices.
    We believe that (once the bug will be fixed) the ability of the administrator to set the XDM login
    command on the server will give people the best flexibility and adapt to most setups.
