Was able to get it working. Loaded a backup of my pam.d folder and it’s now working. I think it was the “required” parameter in the nx Pam file.October 10, 2017 at 08:47 in reply to: Google 2-factor authentication not working for NoMachine #16011
Sorry about the late response. I will be collecting the log files in the next few days.
Thank you for working with me. I really would like this working.September 20, 2017 at 09:09 in reply to: Google 2-factor authentication not working for NoMachine #15825
Tested with ssh and 2fa. That works fine with my google authenticator.
I then turned off the google 2fa in nx pam file. Logged in with my username (manny) and password fine; sends me right to my desktop.
I then turned back on 2fa in the nx pam file, tried to log in and it failed; telling me this here “authentication failed, please try again”. (Now, this is a different error then it has been telling me. Which has been “Authentication failed, please try again. When joining a domain, don’t forget to specify the username as domain\user.” This device is not part of a domain at all.)
After the last failed login I checked the logs at “/usr/NX/var/log/nxserver.log”. Which tells me>

I will test 2fa with ssh tomorrow, no .google_authenticator~
So I notice now testing if I remove the 2fa line from the nx Pam config then I can log in fine with username/password. If I add the 2fa line back in the nx Pam I can’t log in with username/password, it errors with
“Authentication failed, please try again. When joining a domain, don’t forget to specify the username as domain\user.”
I don’t have s domain set and only one user account on the computer.
