    I am trying to evaluate NoMachine Enterprise Desktop but I don’t see any documentation for it, anywhere, particularly for the Linux version which I have installed on CentOS but doesn’t appear to do anything.

    I see manuals for NoMachine Enterprise Server, but not Desktop. Is there any documentation for Desktop? How do I troubleshoot my Linux install?




    Hello tryptych,

    You can read the following guides for your NoMachine Enterprise Desktop install: NoMachine Enterprise Products – Server Guide (https://www.nomachine.com/DT07M00090) and NoMachine Enterprise Products – Server Guide – Advanced Functions (https://www.nomachine.com/DT07M00091).

    Kind regards,


    Thanks but I am looking for a manual for Enterprise Desktop, not Enterprise Server. The links in your message provide no relevant information about my install such as:


    • Which versions of Linux is it compatible with?
    • What is the name of the service on Centos7?
    • How do I restart the service, or check it’s status?
    • Is any configuration required?

    I am evaluating this product for my company and will not be able to recommend it unless I can get this Linux portion working. I am disappointed there is not proper documentation, or at least a “Quick Start Guide” for the Desktop Linux version.




    Hello again tryptych,

    NoMachine guides for the enterprise mentioned previously apply to all server products except NoMachine free which has its own manual.

    Since NoMachine Enterprise Desktop doesn’t support virtual desktops, sections related to virtual desktops do not apply.


    – ‘Which versions of Linux is it compatible with?’: on the download page of each product you can find the list of supported Linux platforms. NoMachine officially supports RHEL 7, but it is suitable also for CentOS 7.


    – ‘What is the name of the service on Centos7?’: the name of NoMachine services is pre-pended by the ‘nx’ keyword.

    Main services are nxserver.bin and nxd, which is the NoMachine network service listening by default on port on port 4000 and ready to accept

    connections by NX protocol.


    – ‘How do I restart the service, or check it’s status?’

    i) you can do that from the command line (see: https://www.nomachine.com/DT07M00090#3):

    /etc/NX/nxserver –restart

    /etc/NX/nxserver –status

    ii) or via the graphical interface.

    See this guide for the server GUI: https://www.nomachine.com/DT11M00107


    – ‘Is any configuration required?’: NoMachine is designed to be up and running and ready to work as soon as the installation is completed. No further configuration is required.
