    Hello Britgirl,

    We are currently experimenting with NoMachine. This is how it is being installed and used:
    – Every developer has both a MacBook and an Ubuntu desktop

    – For those developers who require remote access to their Ubuntu desktop, we ask them to install NoMachine on both OS’s.

    – When they are out of office, they will connect to the VPN and then access their Ubuntu desktop via NoMachine.

    When it was discovered that, by default, NoMachine shows the desktop session and doesn’t automatically blank the screen and log out at the end of a session, I quickly scrambled to create a notice with instructions to change these two settings. However, ideally, I would like to know if there is a way to automate and/or force enable the settings:

    – Anyone can view their session, if their monitor is turned on.
    – If the remote user doesn’t initiate a logout, their physical computer remains accessible to anyone.

    …during the installation.

    *******

    On another topic, I am a bit confused about NoMachine licensing. Since we are using NoMachine in a corporate environment, do we need to license NoMachine? It is very important that we are compliant with your licensing. Our use is specifically Mac OS workstation to Ubuntu OS workstation but since we are only recommending this application, I am uncertain about how we can control how many copies of this application are in use.

    Thank you
