    would like to run a nomachine client on a windows machine, where I can script how/where to connect, and pref without having to use a connection file

    I know that nxplayer <path\to\connection\file> can start a known session, would like to also be able to create a new session. I would like to use this within remote desktop manager.

    Would be a big bonus if the client could be started as a session within that application, knowing that this would require some coding effort.

    Also, some additional info re the nxs file format would be helpful, eg to generate connection files if this cannot be (fully) done via the commandline.

    Starting the player from another application is certainly possible and I don’t see any problem with that. Create a .nxs file on the fly in a temporary location and feed it to the player. Remove the .nxs when the client exits. Feel free to ask in this forum would you find any option whose operation is not obvious. Consider that there is no plan to offer all options present in the nxs on the command line. This should not be a problem, given it’s just a file everybody can parse with 3 lines of shell code, but of course one can write a nxs generator using something like this.

    Let me know if you are working on some open source project or have any idea on how to integrate or extend the NoMachine functionalities. If we consider it useful, we’ll be happy to sponsor your effort.


    Hi hansd,

    we’ve inserted a new Feature Request into the development roadmap which you can track using the following link:
