    version 7.0.211

    OS: Windows 10

    Since the latest update I have this small issue:

    When you start the computer and you connect to the user’s desktop, if you check the server status, it will display :  “Querying the server”

    Nothing happen if you manualy edit the %USERPROFILE%\.nx\config\player.cfg by setting the value :  <option key=”Start the server on reboot after a manual shutdown” value=”false” />

    I just want to be turned off after a reboot.

    To fix it after a reboot you need to quit nxplayer and relaunch it, server status will be “not running” as expected.

    Hi Babok. We’re troubleshooting the issue, it looks like the client can’t retrieve the correct server status.
    By the way, editing the player configuration will not help to do what you want, it just affects how GUI panels are shown to the user. If you want to be sure server is turned off, just check the NoMachine tray menu: if you don’t see the entry “Quit NoMachine service” then it means server is not running. In the contrary case you can also quit the service from the menu, and choose whether you want to start it at next reboot or not.

    Hi Tor,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The NoMachine’s community is amazing ! Keep up on the good work.

    Maybe could you explain us:

    Whenever server status display “Server is not running”, NoMachine’s services (nxplayer.bin and nxclient.bin) open port and listen incoming connections.

    If we want just to use it as a client, why do NoMachine have to listen connection ?

    When there are no sessions running (i.e. you’re not connected to a NoMachine server), nxplayer and nxclient open ports listening only on localhost interface so they won’t accept connections from external IPs. They’re used for inter-process communication through authenticated connections and execute only user level operations.
    If one or more sessions are running, some ports could be required by services. You can read detailed information here:
