A ‘connection refused’ error is usually raised if there are no services listening on that port, or if a firewall is rejecting the connection. Can you check whether you can connect with another client to the same server (I take it that this computer is your personal PC). It might be that your university doesn’t allow this type of access from outside?
Hi, the ARM package cannot be installed on Windows systems, only Linux I’m afraid.January 14, 2020 at 15:30 in reply to: How can I allow two persons to concurrently connect to the same machine? #25228
Hi, compare the free and Enterprise Desktop option here: https://www.nomachine.com/remote-access-for-everyone
it says 44$/year, but it gives different pricing for different OS, what does this mean?
Hm, I’m not sure where you are looking. Perhaps you are seeing the pricing for the packs of 10 licenses which are geared towards corporate use? For one computer it’s enough to install one license. If you check the link I pasted, you can see it costs $44.50 regardless of whether it’s Windows, Mac, Linux or Raspberry 🙂
what should I purchase?
If you are connecting simultaneously from two computers/devices (whether it’s Linux, Windows or other supported operating system) you will need Enterprise Desktop for Linux on the remote computer you want to access. (I say Linux because you wrote that you are connecting to a Linux computer). NoMachine’s licensing model is what we call “per server” and that means the license is installed on the remote computer you want to connect to. So your set up will be:
2 clients on which you install the free version or alternatively Enterprise Client.
1 Enterprise Desktop on the remote computer you are connecting to (if you want more than one connection) OR the free version if one connection is enough.
Take a look the FAQs here: https://www.nomachine.com/faq, the first five are probably the answers you are looking for 🙂January 13, 2020 at 09:28 in reply to: How can I allow two persons to concurrently connect to the same machine? #25209
Two users connecting at the same time to a remote computer counts as two connections. With the free version installed on the remote computer you and your friend will not be able to connect at the same time, only separately. The free version allows one connection, so if you want two connections or more to the remote computer being, try Enterprise Desktop.
How do I share my desktop with another user if I have the free version installed?
Update: the user has confirmed that the latest version (6.9.2) is working without any issues.
Thanks for letting us know. Just so other users can easily find how to change the default desktop when launching a NoMachine virtual desktop session, the correct article is:

It’s not a question of missing documentation about multi-touch events, it’s that multi-touch events are not handled at all. As I wrote earlier, we first need to first evaluate how such events are received to be able to send them to the server in order to add support for multi-touch commands. Definitely something to explore further.January 7, 2020 at 11:52 in reply to: Android app asks for credentials of a PC with no password #25119
When NoMachine prompts you to insert the username and password, you need to insert the credentials of the account of the Windows machine. Remote login to Windows with empty password is forbidden by Windows policies: https://www.nomachine.com/AR05L00802.
But it is possible to connect without using system password. There are two ways to achieve it.
1. Connect with using private key authentication (https://www.nomachine.com/AR02L00785).
2. Enable NoMachine database. To do it – edit server.cfg as an administrator (in the default it’s located in the %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\NoMachine\etc directory).Uncomment and change the keys to following values:

You should submit the logs from the client and server sides (assuming you have access to this machine). This could help us to understand why you can only get sporadic access.
In order to extract the logs, please see the following article: https://www.nomachine.com/DT10O00163#1.3
You can send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com making sure you reference the topic as the subject or within the body of your email.
Users should update to the latest version and report back if they continue to have issues.
So, let’s call your two iMacs A and B. You can connect from B to A over the Internet without any issues, but when connecting from A to B, B is never available (i.e. you’ve never successfully connected)?
If that’s the case, it sounds like a WIFI or router issue on the side of the where your iMac ‘B’ is. You can look in the client side logs for this message “‘A connection timeout has occurred while trying to connect to ‘xxxxxxxxxxxxxx’ 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.’”
Please try the tips in the following article: https://www.nomachine.com/AR11L00827
Not at the moment, but we can check how the client receives those events and how to use them on the remote OS in order to see whether adding support for it is possible. It’s certainly not a trivial thing 😉
Are you connecting over LAN or over the internet?
NoMachine for therange allows you to access your remote desktop over the Web.
You need to have installed either Enterprise Desktop or one of the other products in the Enteprise range on the computer you want to access. The free version doesn’t support browser-based connections.
