    There is a system A – Ubuntu and system B – Win7. It would be desirable from the Win7 connect to a remote desktop on Ubuntu. Was set up NoMachine.

    Please tell me, who knows how to make so that with a successful remote connection on the local screen Ubuntu blocked? (as in the example rdp)

    Now it turns out that the remote user on Win7 and Ubuntu local user sees the same working screen and everything happening on it. I.e I would like to, so that when a connection is working the screen is only connected to, and at the local – the lock screen. How to do?


    Hi mivang078,

    Blanking remote screen during connection is a feature that will be implemented soon. In the meantime, you have the possibility to start a separate X server (Xvfb) and attaching to it, instead of X display connected to monitor.

    The article “How to use NoMachine 4 on a headless Linux server” (here: https://www.nomachine.com/AR10K00710) will give you some tips about Xvfb.

    In your case, you will have to start it on display other then :0, and adjust DisplayDefault key in node.cfg.

    Best regards,
