How many users can each MX100 kit support?

Every MX100 kit supports 3-users.

What’s versions of vSpace Server software support the MX100?

All MX100 kits require vSpace Server for Windows version 8.4 or later. Earlier versions of vSpace Server software do not support the MX-series devices and you will not be able to use MX-series devices on these earlier versions of vSpace Server software. MX100S will also work with vSpace for Linux.

How many MX100S users can be supported by a single vSpace Server host computer?

The number of users that can be supported depends primarily on the capability and resources available to the host computer running the vSpace Server software.

For general office productivity computing needs, NComputing recommends 1GHz of CPU performance and 2GB DRAM for each user. Using these parameters, a single quad-core CPU clocked at 3.0GHz with 24GB DRAM can support up to 12 users.

Can MX100S Standard Edition kits, L250, L300 and L350 devices be deployed on the same Host vSpace Server computer?

Yes, a vSpace Server host computer can support any combination of these devices. Note the vSpace Server version 8.4 (or later) is required to support MX100 devices.

Can I replace the supplied 2m USB 2.0 A/B cable with a longer cable?

Yes, you must use a high quality USB 2.0 cable (USB 1 cables are not supported), the maximum supported cable length is 5m for a USB 2.0 A/B cable.

What is the maximum VGA cable length that I can use with MX100 devices?

The length of VGA cable that can be used will depend very much on the quality of the monitor being connected to and the VGA cable itself. With a good quality monitor and cable you should be able to use cables up to 5m. With poor quality monitors and cables you may be limited to using cable lengths of 2-3m.
