    Unhappy Failed to connect to EC2 desktop cloud instance of ubuntu-natty-daily-i386-desktop

    Hi,

    I started a instance of ubuntu-natty-daily-i386-desktop (ami-97a89fe3) on EC2.

    I can SSH to the instance using PuTTY.

    I ran
    >> sudo adduser <some user>

    If I run my NX Client, I get :

    NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 1352
    NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
    NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
    NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
    NX> 200 Connected to address: 46.51.165.158 on port: 22
    NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
    NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
    NX> 204 Authentication failed.

    I am using the default keys on the NX client. And of course the UID-PWD from before.

    Why is it not working?

    Ohh. I am on Windows.

    Thanks

    did you allow password logins in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    you might also want to read through the NoMachine NX Server Admin guide

    you might also look at x2go. I've used both and x2go has a lot of advantages. There is also alot of development going on and now there is a python client, firefox plugin client, and windows, linux and mac native clients.

    x2go is GPL for both server and client and no limitation on # of users.

    There is an Ubuntu ppa soon to be available also.

    I've used x2go on Natty on EC2 and it works defaulting to gnome desktop.
    Sound/printing etc worked.
