    Hello,

    I am trying to restrict NoMachine to only a VPN interface (tun0) which I am able to achieve via UFW/iptables however when I lock down traffic to port 4000 and the UDP port range,  I am no longer able to see the NX server in my NX client when searching the network for devices, I can however succesfully connect if I manually lookup the IP address first.

    How does NX announce itself on the network to other clients?

    Also is there any specific way to lock traffic to a specifc network interface other than using firewall rules?

    Hello,

    There is a feature request https://www.nomachine.com/FR09P03687 that could help for your case.

    If I am not wrong, when you are mentioning that you dont see NoMachine server in client i am thinking that you need to enable mDNS port as well inside of firewall.

    Here is the article about NoMachine used ports: https://www.nomachine.com/AR01L00770.

    Thanks @fisherman I missed the mDNS when I was skimming the article the first time, exactly what I was looking for.
