Using NoMachine Server for Linux to access Windows Terminal Server from the client machine

In version 4 and later, the enterprise-oriented products Terminal Server, like the Enterprise Server, allow RDP-supported connections. By installing NoMachine client  on your local desktops and connecting through the NoMachine Server installed on a Linux box, to the Windows Terminal Server, you will be able to run your Windows applications remotely from your client machine.

The resulting schema is as follows:

NoMachine Client ----> NoMachine Server ----> Windows Terminal Server

In this way the clients will be able to access the resources and the applications residing, in this case, on the Terminal Server. In this kind of setup, NoMachine Server acts as a 'gateway' which will take care of forwarding the client' requests to the Windows server on the backend.

You will need to verify that you have:

  • NoMachine Client for your operating system client-side
  • NoMachine Server on your 'gateway' machine

Furthermore, you need to ensure that a suitable version of rdesktop is installed on each of your NoMachine node host machines. More about this is available here:
