    I am planning on using NoMachine for remoting into clients computers when they need me to fix something they broke, but most users today have NAT servers.

    The question I would like to ask is, is there a way to access a computer with NoMachine behind the NAT, without having to go in a port forward every router.

    I know that there was a support page with information about different protocols, but I don’t quite understand if that means I will be able to do this or not.

    Hi keyxmakerx,

    Currently NoMachine tries to configure automatically a router to allow incoming connections. If it is successful, details of an IP and a port to use to connect are available in the Player GUI.

    Routers supporting UPnP or NAT-PMP are configured automatically to pass connections to NoMachine and all required informations are displayed at initial screen (Welcome to NoMachine).
    Routers not supporting UPnP or NAT-PMP and Firewalls have to be configured manually to pass traffic to port 4000 (NX protocol), 22 (SSH protocol on Linux/MacOSX) or (4022) (SSH protocol on Windows).

    What you ideally need is NoMachine Anywhere. It will be perfect for users who either don’t know their IP or are not able to configure their router for whatever reason.
    NoMachine Anywhere is in its final stages of development and will be introduced along the development of the new version 5.

    Awesome! 😀 Seems like I came it at the perfect time!

    Also, just out of curiosity, how can I use NoMachine for my server, if there is such a need. I think I remember hearing someone using it for their server, but I wasn’t sure as to what benefits it gave over just a ssh client.

    Hi keyxmakerx,

    Do you mean to access your server from a different device by using NoMachine?

    In this case you need to install NoMachine (server) on the machine you want to reach. On the device from which you connect, install NoMachine client, that also exists for Android tablets and iPads.

    We will be happy to reply to more specific questions. You may also contact us privately by sending a contact request (the contact form can be found here: https://www.nomachine.com/contact-request)
