    The Network feature actually sounds interesting. What is the current release roadmap? Will there be priority support for early adopters?

    So I can’t access a desktop if I don’t know the credentials of the corresponding Linux account? This means I can’t use (free) NoMachine for support sessions. I am not allowed to know other users’ credentials and the users can not create a additional account for support since they need support with their normal account.

    Is this different for NoMachine variants with costs?

    I have read that before. Forgive me, but I do not understand that FAQ entry.

    It says “free version”. Somewhere else I have read that I need a non-free Enterprise Server software on the local machine. Is that other information outdated? Will physical desktop sharing actually work with free versions installed on both, local and remote PC?

    It says “…you will need to create an account for them on your computer”. What kind of “account”? There is no such thing as an account management in the free version of NoMachine. I do not understand this term.

    Apart from that, the FAQ describes the normal procedure of connecting one PC to another PC using IP and port. As I wrote, this always results in a new virtual desktop session (like a terminal server). I was not able to share an existing physical desktop (for support purpose) and I have not seen anything in the GUI that would allow me to select between creating a new virtual desktop or sharing a physical desktop.

    When connecting, it always asks me for username and password, which makes it impossible to access the desktop of another user sitting in front of the remote PC since I do not know the password of that user.
