    You can disable the automatic startup NoMachine at boot time (https://www.nomachine.com/AR11P01005). You can always install NoMachine Enterprise Client https://www.nomachine.com/download-enterprise#NoMachine-Enterprise-Client.

    If you just want to disable access to your local desktop – check this tutorial – https://www.nomachine.com/disabling-access-to-your-local-desktop.

    We couldn’t reproduce this problem. Which Desktop Environment do you use and which screensaver? If you try to lock screen manually inside the session are you reproducing this behaviour?

    Screenshot indicates that there could be wrong starting command. What is the output of the command grep DefaultDesktopCommand /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg. Please enable debug, reproduce problem and send logs to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com (all that should be done on the server side). There are instructions how to enable and collect debug logs automatically: https://www.nomachine.com/DT10O00162. Make sure you put the title of the topic as your subject.

    Can you write from which cloud service are you using?

    Hi. Please try solution from that article: https://www.nomachine.com/AR03P00973. Turn of X server and restart nxserver.

    sudo service gdm stop
    sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --restart

    To disable X server permanently you can execute command: sudo systemctl disable gdm3.service.

    Please try again to configure port forwarding. On Port Range Forwarding field set 4000 as Start and End Port. Then you need to choose router’s external IP and port 4000 to connect over internet.

    If it’s your local network – you should use local IP and port 4000 (please take a look: https://www.nomachine.com/getting-started-with-nomachine). External IP and port (in your case 25.90.xx.xx:20564) should be used if you are connecting over internet. If this is your case and there shows connection timeout error it could be some router settings problem.

    Can you check if your router supports UPnP? Please verify also if 25.90.xx.xx indeed is your external IP (for example there: https://www.whatismyip.com/). If not – it looks that you have a double NAT networking. It means that NoMachine has to go through two or more routers. In that case you need to set up separate port forwarding rules on each device. If IP is the same you need to manually configure them: https://portforward.com/help/doublerouterportforwarding.html.

    It will be possible to skip these steps with NoMachine Network feature (https://www.nomachine.com/FR07J02731) which is coming soon.

    As you have in the link above: edit file rc.local (sudo vim /etc/rc.local) and add line:

    /sbin/iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT` to accept all inbound traffic

    or add to rc.local only NoMachine ports:

    /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m multiport --dports 5353 -j ACCEPT
    /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dports 4000 -j ACCEPT

    Probably iptables isn’t started after installation. You can logout from the xfce desktop and run and it again (startxfce4 or other command which you are using), then start nxserver sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --start.

    Hi.
    Logs will no longer be necessary because it’s easily reproducible, but it is not NoMachine related.

    Please try that solution from crouton wiki: https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton/wiki/Running-servers-in-crouton.

    Install iptables:

    sudo apt-get install iptables

    When service would start – restart nxserver:

    sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --restart

    Then you should be able to find your machine in the local network and connect there.

    Do you have enabled “Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off” in the Mac Energy Saver settings? It looks like your computer is set to sleep after 10 minutes. To avoid this enable that option.

    What is your router model? Can you check if UPnP is enabled in router settings?

    If problem still appears enable logs on server side (https://www.nomachine.com/DT10O00162#1), restart nxserver, open CMD as an administrator and execute commands:

    cd %ProgramFiles(x86)%\NoMachine\bin
    nxserver --upnpmap

    and send output and collected logs to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com.

    I cannot connect in either direction.

    Something have broken, earlier you wrote that you could connect from office to home. Maybe IP was changed. Are you sure that you chose properly address?

    Additionally please verify if the IP address which you are trying to connect is indeed that machine public IP (for example there: https://www.whatismyip.com/). If not – it could indicates that you have a double NAT networking. Which means that NoMachine has to go through two or more routers. In that case you need to set up separate port forwarding rules on each device.

    Sorry for that, it should be server.cfg file. It’s in the same place – InstallationDirectory/NoMachine/etc/.

    Are you sure if you ware able to connect before update? If there wasn’t any changes with router configuration you should be still able to connect there.

    Can you check if there is EnableUPnP NX set in the node.cfg file? You can find it in InstallationDirectory/NoMachine/etc/ folder and edit as text file. If there is “none” value or it is commented out (line is beginning with # char) – you need set there “NX” value or uncomment key (delete # from line beginning). Then restart nxserver (click on NoMachine icon on the system tray -> Show the service status -> Restart the nxserver)

    If this is not the case, please open cmd as an administrator, navigate to InstallationDirectory/NoMachine/bin and execute command nxserver --upnpstatus. It should print External IP and port which you should use to connect.

    Do you have enabled UPnP function on the office router? If yes – you should follow instructions from “Using NoMachine for remote access to a computer over the internet” section on the https://www.nomachine.com/getting-started-with-nomachine. If no – you should ask administrator of your office network to forward port manually.

    If you have permission to change your router configuration, you can just enable UPnP or forward port manually by passing traffic to port 4000 (NX protocol). Follow your router instruction to know how to do that (guide you can also find in the internet, for example from there: https://portforward.com/asus/rt-ac68p/).
