I already read this https://www.nomachine.com/AR02L00785 But that’s not enough, this is not working, it lacks explanations. How to generate the key pair, with puttygen? with what parameters? where i must place the public key? Is there any parameter to add in the server.cfg? Thank you October 30, 2019 at 14:43 #24315 sixtyfourParticipant I found by myself. The public key must be put in the hidden folder .nx, who is itself in the %userprofile% folder of the user who installed NoMachine.

Please consult section 3: https://www.nomachine.com/DT10O00150 As for putty, you might find the official documentation useful, e.g, https://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/0.73/htmldoc/Chapter8.html#pubkey-puttygen Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
