    I’m using NoMachine (free) 8.1.2 on a Mac macOS Monterey 12.0.1 as the Server and trying to connect via another Mac with the same NoMachine version, Mac running macOS Monterey.

    Connecting to the server, I see the request to Accept the screen share via NoMachine and then am automatically disconnected . Further reading, I think this may be a permission issue (e.g., but that command said there was no user when I specified the user).

    Logs attached. Any thoughts / direction?


    Hi, there was an image pasted in your topic which was removed. Is it possible for you to attach it in a follow up, or even send directly to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com and I will attach it to your original topic. Thanks!


    See attached. Thank you @Britgirl!


    It’s possible that the latest update 8.2.3 fixes the problem you have. So please try. If that doesn’t help, we would need you to enable debug, reproduce the problem and extract the logs.

    Please see the instructions on how to do that: and send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com. Use the title of this topic as the subject of your email.




    Hi Jacob,

    First, I apologise for answering after several days – your email with logs unfortunately got missed.

    Then, looking at the logs you sent, we noticed that the connection is closed just after the dialog for accepting a connection is shown.

    You use the free version, which allows only one connection: if another user tries to connect, and the session owner accepts, the previous one will be disconnected.

    Please check the following article for more info: “How do I share my desktop with another user if I have the free edition installed?” (

    Kind regards,
