    I just installed NoMachine on a local lan and am using linux on both machines. It is asking for username and password, what/where do you get the username and password? I have looked and looked here trying to find out how to get them!!!. I turned off requiring a password for remote machine, but it is still asking for a username and password. There should be something in the docs which explains what username and password NoMachine is requesting.


    Username and password required by the NoMachine is your usual account credentials from your remote machine. For example you can check which user is logged to that machine using command whoami.

    If you don’t want to use your account credentials, you can also use NoMachine database. To enable it change values in server configuration file (it’s placed in /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg on remote machine) and uncomment two lines:

    EnableUserDB 1
    EnablePassDB 1

    Then you can add your nomachine users by using command
    sudo /usr/NX/bin/nxserver –useradd <enter_here_new_username>

    Details you can find there:
