    Client: NoMachine 4.4.12 Windows client on Windows 7 x64 (free version)

    Server: NoMachine 4.4.12 Linux x64 Client on Debian 7 x64 (Gnome Desktop) (dedicated server with virtual display???) (free version)

    After I connect to the server it automatically opens a new terminal. After a successful connection, my keyboard is messed.

    I’m using English US Q keyboard layout on my client and server normally. But after connection when I try to type;

    client ===> to ===> serverq  ===> it types ===> 7

    w  ===> it types ===> 8

    e  ===> it types ===> 9

    r  ===> it types ===> –


    a  ===> it types ===> a

    s  ===> it types ===> b

    d  ===> it types ===> c


    Also enter prints / character.  Backspace prints 5 character etc.

    How can I solve this problem?


    Hello, as I wrote about a  related topic,

    I’d like to look at file under /usr/NX/var/log and $HOME/.nx directories, from client and server.

    Here you find detailed instruction for creating archives from those dirs:

    It would be also interesting to know the keycodes reported by xev tool for the troublesome keys.
