Using NoMachine on your Raspberry
As we hinted at earlier, you can use your Raspberry Pi as either a connecting device or as a computer that you want to remotely access.
Connecting from your Raspberry thin client to another computer
Now that you've installed NoMachine, you're almost ready. On Raspbian, NoMachine is installed under Internet. Click on the Raspberry icon menu and navigate to select NoMachine (Fig. 2). The NoMachine User Interface will open.
If you've already used NoMachine, you will know that you'll need the IP address of the computer you want to connect to, and you must have previously installed NoMachine there, too.
If you are new to NoMachine, you should check out our illustrated tutorial to get started on your first connection. Once you have the IP address of the remote PC or Mac you want to access, you're ready to start using NoMachine on your Raspberry thin client to connect to it.

Remotely connecting to your Raspberry from another device
If you are using Raspberry Pi as a server, the sky's your limit to how you use it. By installing the free NoMachine package for Linux ARM, you can remotely control it from wherever you are, work on documents, transfer files back and forth, view videos and games running on it, and much more. You can connect from any Linux, Windows or Mac computer and clients are available for iPad and Android tablets. Select the NoMachine package for your OS from our download section of the website: https://www.nomachine.com/download.
