Establish remote desktop connections with your devices.


NoMachine gives you remote desktop access to your devices over networks. It's just like your previous remote desktop client - only better.

Travel to any desktop

Travel from your desktop to any NoMachine-enabled computer at the speed of light. NoMachine is the fastest remote desktop you have ever tried. In just a few clicks you can reach any computer in the world and start working on it as if it was right in front of you.

Work with any content

Don't feel limited. Enjoy live audio and video from your remote PC. Watch DVDs, the TV, Hulu or YouTube videos from wherever you are. Or render your animated models. Whether you are an artist or an engineer, your favorite software is always with you.

Meet with others where you work

Your desktop is where you work. Open your desktop for others to join in. Let your friends collaborate on the documents you are working on, share the files you need, help troubleshooting the problems you are experiencing. All securely and under your control.

Use any device

Your folders, drives and devices, travel across machines in a snap. Print a file located on the remote computer to a local printer. Or do the opposite. Plug in any device into the other desktop. Pendrives, scanners and all your disks are ready to use as if they were physically there.

Record what you do

Make a video of what you do on-the-fly. Capture that pesky bug or create recordings of your workflow to play back later. Show others how to get there, ask for suggestions, make presentations of your software and demos. Or record your preferred TV episode in a click.

NoMachine is free for non-commercial use. For enterprise pricing and availability, see NoMachine's Enterprise Store.

NoMachine is good. Alternatively, you may try tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support servers, teamviewer etc. for remotely accessing computers from anywhere anytime. They work well.
