Hoping you missed this question. You had recommended nomachine nx to me
a couple of years ago. To put the question differently, right now, if I
install the nomachine client on a PC that has not yet accessed my nx
server, and then try and connect, a dialog appears saying something to
the effect that the security key is not recognized, and would I like to
accept it. If I answer yes, the key is imported and stored, and the
connection is made - after that, I never get another query about the key
when I access from that client. My question is, is there a way to
prevent that dialog and import process, and only allow connections from
client-computers to which I have manually copied the key into the right
location? Everything I'm reading seems to be saying that's the way it's
supposed to work out of the box/install, but, if so, I've done something
to defeat the default behavior.
