As far I understand it’s not possible under Windows to create virtual desktop, but is possible to switch the monitor if there are more than one on the remote machine.
Due the fact need to have three users working on the same machine with multiple GPU, and seems GPU dynamic allocation is difficult and expensive for such small group, wanted to ask if will be possible using NoMachine Enterprise Desktop to have the users to connect concurrently to the same physical desktop, but next every one switching to “his” how remote monitor.
It’s a rough way to achieve virtual desktop on Windows.
users to connect concurrently to the same physical desktop, but next every one switching to “his” how remote monitor.
It’s possible for the 3 connected users to each see a different monitor, but the input events will still be shared. That is, they would be sharing the input devices and they would be “fighting” for the control of the pointer and keyboard.
I’m not sure what you mean with “safety of using RDP”. Windows’ native RDP can run with virtual display drivers, so it can create virtual displays mirroring the client displays and switch the user’s remote desktop session onto those virtual displays.
Anyway, that NoMachine does not provide a virtual Windows display is not because of technical limitations within NoMachine. It’s a question of licensing terms. You may have noticed that all our server products for Mac and Windows connect users to a remote local display which is a physical one. NoMachine captures what the graphics card on the remote device displays. I.e it functions as any other remote desktop software. The exception is Linux. Our free product on Linux, for example, can connect you to both the physical display or can create a virtual display (in the case of headless machines).
Btw, this question has been dealt with multiple times in our forums. For example, here:
