    Hi – I am using a 2018 Macbook pro and I had set up NoMachine the other day with my Imac at my house (it is a Hackintosh but static IP on my home internet connection).

    When I set it up on my home wifi, it worked beautifully.

    I have now tested the connection at 2 different coffee shops and I cannot seem to connect.

    Anybody able to help with this issue?

    Hi Jonneal3,

    Maybe you can have a look at this article How to connect over the internet to NoMachine behind a NAT router, if you haven’t done so yet.

    I checked that out just now.. Yes it seems that the computer that I am trying to connect to has “port forwarding” automatically set up, yet I still get the error.. When I open NoMachine on the machine I want to connect to, it has IP’s right there which mean that port forwarding is found and done automatically.

    This is the error I get:

    A connection timeout has occurred while trying to connect to ‘192.168.1.70’ on port ‘4000’. The issue could either be caused by a networking problem, by a firewall or NAT blocking incoming traffic or by a wrong server address. Please verify your configuration and try again.

    Do I have to maybe have to set up the mac iteself to accept “remote desktop management” in preferences or settings somewhere?

    Any other solutions?

    Hi Jonneal3,

    It looks like you’re trying to connect to the local IP.

    Please take a look at this article https://www.nomachine.com/getting-started-with-nomachine, section: “Using NoMachine for remote access to a computer over the internet”, it shows where to find the external IP.

    It might also be useful to check again point 2.1 in the previous article: https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/AR10R01099
