Forum / NoMachine for Windows / One way connection on Windows 10
March 8, 2023 at 17:38 #43296
I installed NM 8.4.2 free for my two computers today. Restarted both. A: notebook Win10 22H2. B: PC Win10 21H2.
I can connect to PC (B) from notebook (A). But from PC to notebook doesn’t work.
I tried to uninstall – restart – reinstall as admin – restart the notebook.
On notebook, the the server was running just after the install. But from B to A the connection was timed out. Tried to reboot A, but it’s in “server not running” state.

you must first check if the NoMachine server is working properly on computer A (Notebook). You should see the NoMachine icon in the windows tray.
When you move the cursor over it and press the left mouse button, a menu will appear, select “show server status” from it. In the window that will appear you should see a green dot and the words “server running”. This means that the problem is not the NoMachine server not working. What do you see? Can you submit a screenshot of Server status?

There is no NoMachine icon there. If I open the panel, the “Server not running”. But I can’t start the server. Neither from GUI, neither from command line.

We will need the NoMachine installation logs. You can find the installation logs in the directory C:\ProgramData\NoMachine\var\log
The file name is nxinstall.log. Please send via attachment on the forum.

Attached the log in zip file. Maybe after the install, there were the icon. But after the mandatory restart, never again.
Thank you for your help,

the installation logs looks OK.
I don’t know what could be causing your problems. Perhaps the NoMachine logs will help.
Please read the article: https://kb.nomachine.com/DT11R00181
Collect logs and upload them.

The logs look strange.
Have you set the log level to 7? SessionLogLevel 7 key in InstallationDirectory/NoMachine/etc/server.cfg?
Can you uninstall NoMachine?
Verify that all directories have been deleted, if not delete them manually.
Install NoMachine, set the log level to 7, restart Windows and then collect and upload the logs again.
Before installing NoMachine, follow the Windows repair steps from this link:
What is the version of Windows home or professional?
Which version is e.g. 22H2? What type of system is it 64 or 32 bit?
You can find this data in the system tab in the system settings.
Is this a clean install of Windows or is it an upgrade from Windows 7 or 8?
How much memory does the computer have?

As you asked, I uninstalled NoMachine. Made the Windows repair steps (found and repaired something the system), then installed NoMachine again and restarted the notebook.
Before restart, it worked fine. But after the restart, no icon, no server service. 🙁
What is the version of Windows home or professional? – Win10 Enterprise
Which version is e.g. 22H2? – 22H2 (Build 19045.2728)
What type of system is it 64 or 32 bit? – 64 bit
Is this a clean install of Windows or is it an upgrade from Windows 7 or 8? – It was a clean install.
How much memory does the computer have? 8 GB
Thank you for your help!

log file nomachine_log.zip is corrupted, I can’t unpack it.
Please check it and upload it again.
TomMarch 20, 2023 at 14:12 #43497
I repacked the log folder. I hope the upload will be successful now.

now the logs are full of information.
From the logs I deduce that your Windows is connected to Active Directory (AD), but has lost connection to Domain Controller (DC).
Run cmd as administrator and with command nltest/dsgetdc:[domain-name] check if you are connected to DC
[domain-name] replace with your domain eg. test.local
Most likely, after repairing the connection to AD and reinstalling NoMachine, everything will work as it should.

Yes, my notebook is part of the corporate domain. I want to use NoMachine in my home office. I can successfully connect to the DC using a VPN connection. nltest confirms this. Then I tried to start the server on the GUI, but neither the server and desktop sharing didn’t start.
Is there a solution to stop everything, restart the notebook, log in to the domain via VPN and then start the NoMachine server? Should this work?
