NoMachine is working when connecting to one PC with Rocky8, but failing connecting to another machine. Both machines were clean installed with rocky 8, and then clean installed latest NoMachine, but I can connect to one and not the other. The connection appears to start, but then at the client I get error 104. The video card is different and the sound card is different.
Here is the really odd thing. Same hardware I installed centos7 and it all worked perfectly.
inside the client logs I see errors like this….
824374 824482 2023-02-24 14:07:52 055.622 ProxySession/ProxySession: ERROR! Session failure in stage ‘StageWaitingProxyVersion’.
Error: Session negotiation failure.

Attached is the server logs…February 28, 2023 at 11:17 #43099
Hi, hard to say without seeing the logs.
Please submit both Player and Server logs as per the instructions here:
and send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com. Thanks!February 28, 2023 at 13:32 #43102
I thought I did that already. How do you associate the email with the problem?February 28, 2023 at 13:49 #43103
Ok trying again following instructions more meticulously. I apparently had selected level 6 not 7 when I sent them before.February 28, 2023 at 19:00 #43105vhitocParticipant
I have the same problem in Fedora 37 kde plasma, with free version of NoMachine
Please helpMarch 1, 2023 at 13:54 #43118
Nilsonaj, thanks for the additional logs. They indicate a possible issue with Wayland. What DE are you using? Our test on the fly was with Gnome and everything works.
Vhitoc, we would need the server side logs as per the instructions given previously.
However, we are aware of an issue when using KDE when Wayland is the display server. You could try using an alternative desktop environment first maybe? If that doesn’t help, maybe switch over to X.org?March 1, 2023 at 18:43 #43125
First Thanks for taking the time to look at the logs and answer me.
I am using KDE with Wayland (I assume that is what you wanted to know when you asked about DE), BUT as I said I am using the exact same software combination on other hardware, and it works. (I suppose it could still could be a KDE/Wayland thing)
I have a very controlled kickstart install process, I even did rpm -qa on the two systems and compared the output.
I have tried a bunch of different nomachine settings, and non of them seem to do anything, always the same errors… Do you have any settings combination you might suggest. Running a different desktop environment is not a good option.March 1, 2023 at 19:03 #43128
I see these error messages in a log file of the failing server… Which I do not see on the “working” server.
I find it suspicious because the video card is different.

For now I was able to start with X.org instead of Wayland, and NoMachine now worksMarch 2, 2023 at 15:32 #43178
I had the logs checked again by our Core team. The problem is related to how NoMachine handles 10-bit color displays.
We’ve opened a Trouble Report which you can monitor here:
The workaround is to use X.org instead.
