    I have NoMachine as a backup way to my remote computers, but today when I actually need it, it is failing with “Session negotiation failed”.

    I have already read this post: https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/session-negotiation-failed-on-windows-11 but it does not work in my case, since the account is already password-protected.

    Both client and the server are running NoMachine 7.7.4 with Windows 10 21H2

    Authentication method: Key based authentication

    This is the log from server side (nxserver):

    Would be great if someone can assist on how to resolve the issue. Thanks!

    Hello JMiller,

    It looks like an issue with missing privileges of nx user account.
    Please, check this reply: https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/first-time-connecting-session-negotiation-failed-error#post-34887

    Let us know if enabling missing privileges and restarting nxserver solves the issue.
