    I have a Windows 10 client with NoMachine (Free) installed.  I would like to add two-factor (Google Authenticator or Duo) to that connection so I can expose it on the Internet.

    Every link I can find is either for a Linux client or with the Cloud Server.  I would have no issue going with the paid Desktop version but the server seems to start at $3500/year and I only have one Desktop.

    Is there any way to enable two-factor on the free version running on Windows?

     

    Thank you!

    Hello palmersu,

    NoMachine doesn’t currently support two-factor authentication to Windows machines. We suggest using public-key authentication which provides better security than password auth. This article describes how to set it up:

    Hi, it’s a functionality we will be adding in the future, although right now we can’t provide a target release.
