    I have installed NoMachine on my Ubuntu-22.04 with the .deb file you provided.

    I was not asked for an admin password at any moment, but, if I want to change setting or even stop NoMachine service, I am asked for an admin password that I don’t know.

    Is there any default admin password?
    Is this normal behaviour?

    Any help is welcome,
    Best regard,


    You installed the package, so presumably you are an administrator of your machine. If it is so and you are a sudo user, please insert your password and verify that the authentication succeeds. If it does not, from a terminal on the server, making sure you are opening the terminal as the same user that wants to connect from remote, run sudo -l -U <username> /bin/pwd and give us the output of this command.
