NoMachine 7 for remote desktop to Windows, Mac & Linux

See what's new in NoMachine 7

NoMachine 7 builds on the innovative features and enhancements that we have introduced over the past few releases. This update introduces significant improvements to the user interface, under-the-hood enhancements and many other refinements further elevating the user experience on all platforms. Here's an overview of some of the features that you'll love in NoMachine 7.0.

Smarter UI design and usability enhancements

 

 

Considerable work has been done on the NoMachine interface with significant layout changes to improve usability and enhance the overall user experience not only when accessing the software’s settings, but also when starting a connection to the remote desktop. A brand new addition in this update is the possibility to start web-based connections from the UI, just like with a traditional connection.

Simplified UI navigation and connection management

NoMachine player and server configuration are now grouped together to facilitate navigation of the UI. When starting a NoMachine session, a new window is created to allow the user to keep the session separate from the main NoMachine window. As a result, settings and connection configuration remain easily accessible to the user even when a remote desktop session is open.

The Machines panel

The ‘Machines’ panel provides an overview of stored connections and any desktops available on the LAN. The novelty with this release is that web-based sessions are also visualized as well as recordings available for play-back on the local host.

Streamlined connection creation

Connection creation is so much faster thanks to one unique interface from which both player and webplayer sessions can be started. Any associated session options are easily accessible and configurable from the now simplified layout.

Simplified menu in system tray

As equally important is the monitor menu available in the system tray which has been updated to better integrate with the native OS theme and style, offering an eye-friendly view of the fast-track options available.

Enhancements to Cloud Server environments

To further support large multi-server deployments, Cloud Server offers multiple enhancements which facilitate both user and administrator activity.

Automatic assignment of Enterprise Desktop

When there are hundreds of near-identical Enterprise Desktops associated to a Cloud Server, there is often a need for users to connect on a “first come, first served” basis. By enabling the automatic assignment of the first available Enterprise Desktop, a new algorithm checks what Enterprise Desktop hosts are free to use or whether a user is already logged in, effectively removing the need for the user to know which resource to connect to.

Profile rules propagation

Managing profiles regarding users, availability of services and access to resources in a multi-server environment is facilitated thanks to the capability of Cloud Server to broadcast rules to all its associated child servers. This ensures that administrators can efficiently manage corporate policies from one central location.

Other features

Make the most of your multi-monitor workspace

Virtual desktop sessions available in the Terminal Server products now adapt seamlessly to client-side multi-monitor workspaces. Thanks to NoMachine’s ability to create virtual monitors which mirror the client-side set-up, users can arrange their virtual desktop and any applications running there according to their preference set on the local desktop. This means that the window manager running in the session is aware of the multiple monitors available on the client and remote applications can be maximized or go fullscreen on a single monitor.

Wake up, it’s time for WOL

If a computer on your same local network is powered off, NoMachine can now wake it up for you. This is made possible by sending “magic packets” from the client to the remote PC or Mac. These packets are able to locate the specific computer you intend to wake using its network card’s MAC address. Once enabled by the user in the connection's configuration, the only requirements for operating Wake-on-LAN are that the remote computer is connected via ethernet, and the hardware must support Wake-on-LAN with a compatible BIOS and network card.

Authentication with separate accounts in multi-server environments

In the case of Cloud Server environments adopting multiple authentication levels, e.g. AD user authentication and subdomains, it is now possible to configure a NoMachine multi-server infrastructure to request different user credentials to log-in to the NoMachine child server. Administrators can therefore decide whether it’s more appropriate to allow pass-through authentication for each user, where authentication on the child server is the same as that on the Cloud Server, or ensure that the user logs in with a different username.

Enable automatic recording at session start-up

NoMachine’s screen recording tool already offers a powerful way to create accessible and shareable videos for all manner of purposes such as how-tos and training materials. With the latest update, it’s now possible for administrators to automatically record remote sessions for all or specific users making it ideal for IT managers who need to document activity in the remote desktop session for monitoring or audit purposes.

Let users choose their preferred Linux desktop

In this version we have added the possibility to provide users with a list of all the Linux desktop environments available on the remote host if this is the configured preference. Up until now NoMachine Terminal Server for Linux editions would either run the default X session set on the system or a different X session if it was configured to do so for virtual desktops. From now, NoMachine will also be able to automatically detect any additional desktop installed by the administrator on the Linux host and allow the user to choose.
