    Hello there,

    Since installing Windows 11 on all my machines (2 desktops, 1 laptop), I am experiencing the following: previously I was able to connect from/to each machine without problems (on a LAN, I do not need to reach them over the Internet). After installing Windows 11 22H2 (build 963), this is not possible anymore as connections time out. The only solution is to restart the nxservice (NoMachine Device Service) on the remote machine (e.g. using RDP). Obviosuly I have checked my router as well as firewall clients on all machines and they are not the problem.

    As soon as the nxservice is restarted on the remote machine, I can connect to it remotely without any problem.

    On all three machines the server is set to autostart, but the service still needs to be restarted to make it work.

    Is there any solution to this? Perhaps restarting the service using task scheduler?

    Thanks!

    In case anyone is interested, I solved it by creating a scheduled task as follows:

    • Run with highest privileges using SYSTEM account
    • Trigger: at startup
    • Action: run command powershell -command “Restart-Service nxservice”

    Seems to have solved the problem.
