Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) August 15, 2013 -- NoMachine has released the second beta version of its NoMachine 4 software bringing it one step closer to the final line of remote access products for both personal and enterprise use. This new version for Windows, Mac and Linux, besides consolidating stability and reliability of the previous beta, marks the last of the beta releases with the final 4 release being scheduled for September 18th, 2013.
Among the most evident new features there are:
Running sessions via web browser is now an add-on option thanks to the Portal Server package. It can be installed on any of the NoMachine software editions and includes a small Apache web server ready to go. It's configured to work-out-of-the-box to provide access to the computer on which it is installed. Depending on the host OS, users can access either the physical or virtual desktop.
An even easier installation: now any of the NoMachine packages install a fully operative environment ready to accept connections as a server or to run connections as a player. No additional post-configuration steps are required. Just change the configuration at any time when you need it.
Installing the software: instructions can be found at nomachine.com.
What packages include:
NoMachine packages installs the player (the local application to connect to desktops) and all the server components necessary to let you connect from remote to the physical desktop of the machine where you are installing.
All products, except NoMachine, support SSH connections.
Virtual desktops and custom applications are available with NoMachine Workstation and Enterprise Server for Linux.
To support web sessions, install also the Portal Server package.
The NoMachine Enteprise Client packages installs only the player.
How to run a session
From the Program menu on your machine, launch NoMachine and create a new connection from the UI. Specify the IP or hostname of the machine you want to connect to and provide valid credentials to log-in to the account there. NoMachine must be installed on both sides.
