Can there be some clarification on who is supposed to be able to log into this interface when it’s working as expected? It should be a privileged account I would think. For single user installs, the installer would know this account/password. For multi-user servers, only the admin would have this feature, right? We would not want end users tinkering with their codecs and their settings.
I have not been able to get my head around a pattern in 4.0. We did a clean install, and I can log in with my regular user account for some reason and make changes; yet other people cannot do the same thing.
On Linux you can access NoMachine server settings by entering root credentials or credentials of a user with sudo privileges.
To grant sudo privileges to your user, you must add it to the sudoers group.
Commands for giving sudo privileges to user can be different, so you should check the official documentation for your Linux distribution.
Please note also that in the current implementation it’s not possible to enable changes in server settings GUI on machines with versions of sudo prior to 1.7.4. Authentication as root should work instead.
when I add 100 or more users in some group, than I can’t “Enable changes” in “server settings GUI”
for example, I newly installed ubuntu-12.04-server-i386.iso and nomachine-enterprise-server-evaluation_4.0.369_2_i386.deb, then I create 100 users named “user1, user2, …, user100” which members of group sys by this script:
for i in seq 1 100;do useradd -G sys user$i;done
after this I can’t “Enable changes” in “server settings GUI” by root or by “sudo user”
