NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

If you just want to connect to the server and do work (like Linux server-workstation type), NoMachine Enterprise Desktop is great, except for the keyboard mapping issue, which you have to correct in a setup of the remote server (almost) every time you log on. The graphics are smooth and fast. Overall response speed is very good, too. I like it.

VNC Connect

It is very easy to use if the remote device is already set up to receive connections, so if you are setting up devices before deploying them, it is a great tool to have. It is well-suited to use when shadowing users or using it as a teaching tool. There are other products that are better if you are trying to help someone on a one-use basis.

Pros

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • Secure connection
  • Fast response over internet
  • Really look like you are sitting in front of the machine you are connecting.
Takao Sakaguchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

VNC Connect

  • VNC Connect does an excellent job in remotely connecting to a computer through either your local area network or even another computer on the internet. As long as the VNC Connect services is installed and the client is running in the background.
  • VNC Connect provides password protection to prevent unauthorized users from attempting to remotely access your computer. There's an option to have a separate password to remotely view vs view & access a computer. You can even add an additional level of security by turning on the feature to require Windows login credentials.
  • VNC Connect provides an additional set of controls after a remote connection has been established with another computer. You can have special keystrokes like Ctrl+Alt+Del sent as a command sequence to the other computer as well as access more than a single screen when in use at the remote computer location.

Cons

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • Keyboard mapping between client and host is often screwed up.
  • Cut and paste between client and host is not convenient
  • Would be nice if there was a function of simple file transfer between client and host
Takao Sakaguchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

VNC Connect

  • Its a pretty straight forward product - I would like to see more tools with a "wow" factor.
  • Panel colors are blah - I would like more eye-catching colors.
  • A more consistent look with all platforms - like Mac & PC.

VNC is a solid product for the price. It simply works and its reliable across different platforms. Some products state they work well in the Mac environment but don't deliver. This one does what it says. Connections are reliable, but of course, this depends on internet connections. The product works well over wireless connections as well. It delivers on what a remote tool should deliver on. My technicians are happy with the product and customers appreciate the ease of use when letting us connect to their systems. Some also appreciate the remote support while they are multi-task.

VNC Connect is a solid product and our techs are very confident that they can get the job done using it. Reliability is key for us since we have a small support team and many users to support. It also helps keep us in the background more allowing the end-users to multi-task. VNC supports our goal of providing quick and efficient services.

I haven't consulted with customer support, so I don't have an opinion. However, from the usefulness of the product, I think the support is also good

VNC Connect is a reliable product that has been around for a long time. It is reasonably priced and works well in the Mac & PC environment. When you have a small team that supports many users we need tools that we can rely upon and that will get the job done on the first try. Many customers appreciate the quick assistance and can multi-task while our team works on their computer issues remotely. From a customer service point of view, this tool gives us transparency and efficient effectiveness.

The training is very informative, quick and to the point. All of the details one would need are present so the user doesn't have to go searching for additional information just to use the application. The layout of the training was also neat and concise, some of the other training sessions for other companies I've done in the past were confusing and not well thought out, this one is much more superior

Alternatives Considered

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

Again, the NoMachine is a real virtual terminal, and you don't need to install another Linux on your machine to fully exploit the X-terminal function. This makes the disk and memory usage of the client minimum. No issue on the screen. It is really good.
Takao Sakaguchi | TrustRadius Reviewer

VNC Connect

VNC is light and sleek with the quick setup, was impressed with the quick setup despite poor Internet connection outdoor. TeamViewer is good, but the pricing is not as good as VNC. Both do the basic job, but VNC still outperform TeamViewer in terms of performance and ease of use.

Return on Investment

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

  • It makes the access to server much easier and convenient
  • Connection is very stable, which makes works very efficient
  • I don't need to reboot my Windows PC to switch to Linux in order to fully exploit the working environment of the server.
  • No negative impact

VNC Connect

  • I have just used the software for about 1 month and so far so god. I am saving time whenever I can access my client's computers from my desk as opposed to having to leave my office to go to their offices. Saves me time and the client money.
