Creating the NoMachine Network service to let people connect to each other's computers

The underlying concept is to create a service, NoMachine Network, allowing people to connect to each other's computer behind routers and firewalls, without the need for knowing their IP address, and configuring their routers to pass NoMachine traffic to the necessary ports.

Aimed at making users' life simpler, a NoMachine Network account is necessary to connect each PC or Mac over the Internet . Only registered users will be able to use this service from the NoMachine GUI once they are signed in.

Among the built-in facilities there is the possibility to:

- Search for other NoMachine Network users.

- Add favorite users to your roster.

- Let users discover your PC and add your account to their rosters.

- Send invitations to non-Network users to connect to your machine.

A quick look at NoMachine Network service

Let's assume there is User A and User B, both registered to NoMachine Network. User A needs to join the desktop of User B but he/she doesn't know the IP and port in order to connect there.

User A can rely on the Network service to reach User B: by connecting to Network from the client GUI, User A can see the list of the other users registered to the service and send a connection request to User B if he/she is online.

It will be up to NoMachine Network to discover the IP and port of User's B machine and forwarding the connection request of User A to User B.
