Hi everyone.
I've recently installed NVDA Remote Server on my debian server.
everything is ok.
when i check sudo NVDARemoteServer status.
it says, active.
but when I tried to connect through my client, it won't connect.
any idea what is the problem?

Hi.

Are the correct ports open and accessible? I believe port 6837 needs to be open.

cheers,

Mo.

Hi.
I've changed the ports from the configuration file.
and allowed from the firewall.

Hi.

Don't you also have to specify the port in the add-on configuration? Unless you also change it in the code, it probably won't work. There should be something in the documentation on how to specify the correct port on the client side.

Cheers,

Mo.

Hi.

Sorry for not replying to this sooner. When you need to change the port, you enter your hostname plus the port number as follows.

nvdaremote.com:1234

The numbers are your port number. So if your IP was:

88.88.88.88,

In the host box, you would enter:

88.88.88.88:1234

Very best wishes,

Mo.

Hi.

I am not sure if the following would work for you, but you could give it a try.

Open notepad, press control O and paste the following path.

%appdata%\nvda\addons\remote\globalPlugins\remoteClient\configuration.py

Press enter. The configuration file should open. The line you're looking for is:


port = integer(default=6837)

If you try changing the port number on that line, it may solve your problem. It may also be worth checking the file for any other references to the port. That's the only place I can think of where you could make the changes to not expose your port numbers.

I hope that works for you.

Very best wishes,

Mo.
