I have been using NoMachine to connect my iPhone to my Mac build agent via network usb feature. Until recently it worked amazingly well. But yesterday I updated NoMachine for Mac to version 7.6.2 and discovered that I can’t connect my devices in both directions: the list of USB devices is empty. After some investigation I concluded that NoMachine USB kext is not present on my Mac: it is not listed in the Extensions tab of System Report and /Library/Application Support/NoMachine/Extensions does not contain USB kext (see attached image). Reinstalling NoMachine doesn’t help. It seems like the installer doesn’t contain needed kext or doesn’t unpack it.

@Carin Would you be willing to share the script? I also want to connect USB devices to a macOS VM.September 2, 2021 at 10:38 #35065ethomasParticipant
@Carin Can you also share the script with me?
I tried copying over the kext from
It installed fine after editing the permissions and the kext is loaded. However the USB list is still empty.September 2, 2021 at 19:14 #35084ethomasParticipant
Thanks! The script seemed to have worked. Though the copy commands did not work exactly right (copied to wrong directory), I had to do those manually.September 2, 2021 at 23:40 #35086
@Carin Hi! Workaround your team have sent be works somewhat 🙂 Usb related kexts are loaded and visible via System Report. The list of connected devices on both Mac and Linux/Windows is visible and correct. But connecting remote usb device to macOS still doesn’t work: NoMachine indicates successful connection with a green dot, but devices are not accessible on mac (I have tried both iPhone and usb flash drive). It seems like the issue was already reported: https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/not-able-to-see-successfully-connected-usb-device-iphone-on-the-mac and https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/TR07S10310.

Hello, I feel I have a similar issue which I posted here (https://forums.nomachine.com/topic/empty-usb-device-list ; Would you mind sending me this magical script as well please?
Thank you for your help.September 21, 2021 at 11:27 #35379
@jeremy.fix Sent! Check your inbox. Would be great to know the output. Thanks 😉September 22, 2021 at 14:23 #35391jeremy.fixParticipant
Thank you, that indeed solved the problem for at least one user under MacOS 11.xx ;
Note however your script seem to contain some windows linebreaks “^M” , and some “\r” that made it not runnable out of the box. I’m not sure how to properly correct it, I finally ran all the lines of your script one after the other.
Thank you for your help,

Have been attempting to get this to work – if you can pass on the script that’s being handed around, that would be great?

Hello. I’m facing a similar problem when trying to establish USB connection between Linux and macOS 11.6 M1. Could you share your workaround script, please?
