    I’m trying to connect from my private linux machine to my Win 10 laptop with private key based authentication.
    On the client side the connection is stuck at the message “Connecting to Laptop”.

    I checked the logs on the server side and I can see the message: “Client public key is recognized”.
    After that the server tries to getting the password with an infinity loop.

    On Win 10  the password based authentication is disabled. Only fingerprint and PIN based authentication is enabled.

    What can I do? My understanding was that using the private key based authentication could work without additional





    yes it should work without additional methods.

    Can you please enable debug on server side, restart nxserver then reproduce issue, collect logs and send as mail attachment to address forum (at) with title

    Detailed instructions about collecting logs on both side(client and server)
    are available here: (for server side logs)
    and (client side).
