thanks for the clearance. I *really* appreciate how you’re handling things given the current corona crisis.
It will be about 10 ppl using the software and after a brief internal discussion, we decided to purchase the 10 license pack for Enterprise Desktop nevertheless, which btw – compared to any other solution – is very affordable.

the setup should look like this:
one developer@home -> VPN -> one individual workstation@office
At home, the developers will install “what’s most reasonable”, so I guess that will be the free NoMachine package.
At the workstations@office, I guess it would be a NoMachine desktop setup. No one else but the developer will ever access or use this workstation@office.
I’ve read the article you mentioned, but unfortunately it’s not 100% clear to me 🙂
What is considered private or individual use? The list can be endless, but some typical scenarios are:
– Accessing your computer (at home or the office) to work on and view your own personal files.
– Sporadic remote administration of a computer at work.
So that’s what they will do, they will access their computers at office and work and view their personal files.
On the other hand, it says about commercial use:
A commercial user is defined as “an individual or entity, or an individual acting on behalf of an entity, who uses the Software or causes the Software to be used within or to provide commercial products or services to third parties.”
So yes, our developers would use NoMachine to connect to their workstations and work for our company. They are not providing products or services to third parties, though.
Sorry, if this is obvious and I’m just not getting it – I only want to be sure that I understand the required options 🙂
