Connecting to the Terminal Server Node without relaying traffic through the intermediate Enterprise Terminal Server

In a multi-node environment, when the user connects to the Enterprise Terminal Server, traffic is tunneled from the client to the Terminal Server Node via the server.

In order to make sessions lighter and faster, administrator may configure the multinode environment to forward  traffic directly from client to node without relaying on the intermediate server.

This configuration requires that the Terminal Server Node host is reachable from the network of the NoMachine client. Otherwise the connections will be tunneled via ETS. Forwarding of traffic will be transparent to end-users.

This configuration can be managed via nxserver tools by adding a further options to the 'nxserver --nodeadd' command which permits to define how the client traffic will be directed to the Terminal Server Node. For example:

nxserver --nodeadd --forward-nx-method redirect

indicates that users' connections by NX protocol will be redirected to the Terminal Server Node on directly, without passing through the Enterprise Terminal Server host.

In a similar way, for connections by SSH protocol:

nxserver --nodeadd --forward-ssh-method redirect

Notify me when the FR is implemented.
