    Hello,

    I have 2 Windows laptops on the same network. One (HP 15) displays the external IP so I have been able to connect using NoMachine. The other (Lenovo Ideapd 100) only shows a local IP so I cannot use NoMachine to connect remotely. I can only connect from the HP to the Lenovo. How can I get an external IP for the Lenovo?

    Also, I have read a little about NoMachine Network (or some such thing) that is supposed to do away with depending on IP addresses to connect. Where can I find more info on this and how to apply this, if it even applies in my free setup?

    Client Using:  iMac 2019 macOS 10.14 Mojave

    Servers using: HP 15  & Lenovo laptop with Windows 10

    Using free NoMachine v8.8.1 on servers and client

    Hi Nm.smayer97,
    have you configured both laptops the same way?

    I mean the UPNP key in the server.cfg file (/usr/NX/etc/server.cfg), e.g. EnableUPnP NXTCP and restarting the NXServer 
by command in terminal:
    sudo  /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --restart

    Please try this and then check the UPnP status with the command in terminal:
    sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --upnpstatus

    Regards,
    Tom

    Both return “Command not found”

    BTW, commands applied to the iMac client. Is this correct?

    Hi Nm.smayer97,
    sorry, I missed that you wrote about Windows.
    You should do all activities on a Lenovo Ideapd 100 laptop.
    On Windows, the server.cfg file is in C:\Program Files\NoMachine.etc\

    Check there whether you have set the key eg. EnableUPnP NXTCP
    If you change this, the NoNachine server will require a restart.
    You can do this by restarting the system or running the command line (cmd) as an administrator and entering the command:
    "C:\Program Files\NoMachine\bin\nxserver.exe" --restart

    To check if you have UPnP enabled, you can enter the command on the same command line:
    "C:\Program Files\NoMachine\bin\nxserver.exe" --upnpstatus

    Regards,
    Tom

    Network will be available in version 9, and will remove the requirement of having to know the public IP address of the NoMachine host when connecting over the Internet. Network will also remove the need to map ports and configure your router. Network will be compatible with the free version as well. The only requirement to connect over Network instead of TCP/IP will be to have a Network Subscription.
