    Can there be some clarification on who is supposed to be able to log into this interface when it’s working as expected?  It should be a privileged account I would think.  For single user installs, the installer would know this account/password.  For multi-user servers, only the admin would have this feature, right?  We would not want end users tinkering with their codecs and their settings.

    I have not been able to get my head around a pattern in 4.0.  We did a clean install, and I can log in with my regular user account for some reason and make changes; yet other people cannot do the same thing.




    only users with administrative privileges can change server settings.


    Hello, all!


    sil04, what does It mean? only root user?

    Or you mean:

    nxserver –useradd <username> –administrator



    root user or a privileged system account.


    sil04, excuse me, but I don’t understand what do you mean when say “privileged system account” 🙂

    It is simply regular user with configured sudo?

    What I need to do to give privileges for my regular user?:)


    On Linux you can access NoMachine server settings by entering root credentials or credentials of a user with sudo privileges.

    To grant sudo privileges to your user, you must add it to the sudoers group.

    Commands for giving sudo privileges to user can be different, so you should check the official documentation for your Linux distribution.

    Please note also that in the current implementation it’s not possible to enable changes in server settings GUI on machines with versions of sudo prior to 1.7.4.  Authentication as root should work instead.

    but it doesn’t in one strange situation:

    when I add 100 or more users in some group, than I can’t “Enable changes” in “server settings GUI”

    for example, I newly installed ubuntu-12.04-server-i386.iso and nomachine-enterprise-server-evaluation_4.0.369_2_i386.deb, then I create 100 users named “user1, user2, …, user100” which members of group sys by this script:

    for i in seq 1 100;do useradd -G sys user$i;done

    after this I can’t “Enable changes” in “server settings GUI” by root or by “sudo user”
