NoMachine remote PC access software offers high performance and security. Whether you are looking for a personal solution or a program to support an entire business, this versatile software performs well for any type of user.
To begin using NoMachine Enterprise Desktop, you simply download the software onto the computer you want to access remotely. You do not have to search for IP addresses; the program displays PCs that have NoMachine running on them that are on the same network. NoMachine only works on iOS and Android tablets; however, they are currently developing an app specific for smaller screen sizes so that users can access their PCs from smartphones. When accessing your PC from a tablet, you simply install the app onto your device. As long as both PC and tablet are on the same network, you can find the IP address and connect.
When using the software to transfer files, access programs and watch videos, we found that this remote desktop software had minimal to no lag time. Whether you transfer files using the manager or drag-and-drop documents, the program quickly transfers information. You can communicate across platforms using the whiteboard or chat tool. However, we were not able to get these features to work correctly while testing the software. This software also lacks grouping tools, limiting its usefulness for IT technicians.
NoMachine supplies its remote access program with several security features. The program uses 128-bit encryption, which is standard for the industry. While many of the software on our lineup utilize a superior encryption level, this program also has inactivity timeout, keyboard locking and screen blanking. You also can use the security tab to customize the level of security for your session. You can adjust it so that the screen locks when users connect or require them to ask permission before making a remote desktop connection.
While NoMachine is more difficult to use than the top-rated software on our lineup, the website has numerous resources to help lessen the learning curve. You can access user forums and tutorials with help learning how to use specific features. With a searchable knowledgebase, you can search documents, articles, FAQs, trouble reports, feature requests and software updates for anything you need help with. If these resources do not have what you are looking for, you can contact the technical support team by phone and email.
Between this program's numerous features, quick performance and strong security options, NoMachine serves as a solid option for personal users and telecommuters alike. While the program has limited compatibility with mobile devices and lacks grouping capabilities, you can use this software to access a remote desktop with minimal lag.
