I figured out the problem. Before I updated to the current version of NoMachine, I would minimze the NoMachine connection by moving my mouse to the upper right corner, where I could then access the page that let me minimize NoMachine by clicking on an icon. If I came back to NoMachine by using command-tab it would then get back to the connection. Under the new version, it wouldn’t. It would, instead, get to the page that let me initiate a new connection. I’ve changed the way that I minimize NoMachine by using command-tab to get to something that isn’t NoMachine, and then right click on the NoMachine icon in the dock, and then click on hide. This was just a user interface confusion. If there is a faster way to minimize my session, please tell me.
Here’s more information. I logged on to the remote system this morning. After doing a bit of work, I minimized the window. Also, in the new version, I end up having to minimize 3 windows – one for the session, and the other two for preferences, which is a bit annoying. I just did a test. I clicked on the NoMachine icon on the dock, and it brought up the window with the connection lists (which has only one thing on it). I connected and got a log in screen. I logged in, then had to connect to an existing session. I then minimized the three windows. But now, when I click on the “Connections” menu on the Mac status bar, it lists 4 connections to my remote system! For 3 of them, the window is the login screen, but the 4th is the session. So perhaps the new (?) user interface is just a bit confusing. In the previous version of NoMachine, when I clicked on the icon in the dock, it just brought up the session.
I manually configured the connection by entering the IP address and checking on private key authentication. When I right-click on it, the “Remove Connection” menu item is there.
Britgirl, Thanks for the reply. In the meantime, however, why isn’t a version 5 client still available for download? If you’re getting rid of backward compatibility in the new version, that should be kept around.
