    Two Linux Mint 19.3 hosted systems running free NoMachine version 7.6.2.

    • Host-A connects to Host-B but NoMachine shows the wrong host name for Host-B.
    • Host-B connects to Host-A where NoMachine shows the correct host name for Host-A.
    • Host-A can successfully ping Host-B with the latter’s correct host name.
    • Nslookup on Host-A for the Host-B ip address shows the correct host name for Host-B.
    • The dnsmasq server (pi 4) shows that the Host-B wrong name is set correctly for another system with a different IP address than Host-B.
    • I’ve checked both systems with hostnamectl and both /etc/hosts where wrong Host-B name is not present.

    How to diagnose this? I am stumped.

    Hi, can you show me exactly where NoMachine is showing the wrong hostname? Attach the screenshots to your reply.

    Screenshot attached from Host A. W7lansvr and Win7nuc are Windows 7 VM’s running under Linux.

    Host B shows as FileSvr but should show as Lansvr.
