View Full Version : [ubuntu] NXclient stalls on "Negotiating link parameters"

July 11th, 2011, 05:26 PM
I have a laptop with Kubuntu 10.04 and am connecting to a desktop with the same kernel, that runs a freenx server. For many months I could use Nomachine's nxclient to connect to it, and show the screen of my desktop on my laptop. However, a month or so ago, it stopped working. Everything connected fine, but when it opened the screen to show the desktop, it would just crash, with no error messages, or anything. I could still SSH to the machine, but no NX client. I checked out the error logs, and it gave a warning that the versions were different, so I updated the NXClient on the laptop to 3.5 This helped nothing. I deleted the cache, and now it hangs at "Negotiating link parameters". I checked the session log, and it gives:

Info: Proxy running in client mode with pid '5986'.
Session: Starting session at 'Mon Jul 11 11:06:46 2011'.
Info: Connecting to remote host ''.
Info: Aborting the procedure due to signal '15'.
Session: Session terminated at 'Mon Jul 11 11:07:16 2011'.

I don't know if it matters, but both machines are behind my router.

I cannot find any more information about the cause of the crash.

This is really a shame, because it was a beautiful connection before that worked very easily.
