    When I invoked the target PC in the personal use !M Android app, it asked for username and password. I have a unique installation where I need to boot a PC without any intervention (it doesn’t have a monitor – it controls a telescope mount). It doesn’t have internet access so is almost air gapped. How can I bypass this?

    When NoMachine prompts you to insert the username and password, you need to insert the credentials of the account of the Windows machine. Remote login to Windows with empty password is forbidden by Windows policies: https://www.nomachine.com/AR05L00802.

    But  it is possible to connect without using system password. There are two ways to achieve it.

    1. Connect with using private key authentication (https://www.nomachine.com/AR02L00785).

    2. Enable NoMachine database. To do it – edit server.cfg as an administrator (in the default it’s located in the %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\NoMachine\etc directory).Uncomment and change the keys to following values:

    EnableUserDB 1
    EnablePassDB 1
