    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    Thanx for this How-To.

    It wasn't working directly, but that was my fault; I selected the wrong desktop (KDE), which was on the host not available

    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    I setup freenx a few weeks ago based on similar instructions.

    I was curious if you or someone else could tell me the reason for this step.

    >> 3) modify the "AuthorizedKeysFile" line in "AuthorizedKeysFile %h/.ssh/authorized_keys2" (default is "%h/.ssh/authorized_keys")

    I recently spent a lot of time setting up key authentication in ssh and I think the above instruction might be outdated/uneccessary but I'm not certain. I think recent versions of ssh don't use authorized_keys2 anymore. I can't figure out why it really matters what the file is called. It seems like changing the name would also cause existing keys to stop working.

    I will look forward to learning more.

    Thanks
    Ryan

    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    Thanks for this thread...

    I have FreeNX working well with on of my 2 linux boxes, but I can't figure out how to handle connecting to either of 2 boxes (which are both behind the same router and firewall).

    If I port forward port 22 to one of the boxes I can access that box without problem. If I try to port forward a different port for the other box. my connection is refused.

    Other than changing the router to forward to a new port in the host, changing /etc/ssh/sshd_config to listen for the new port, and adding the new port to the NX client, are there and additional settings I should modify to get this to work??

    Thanks...

    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    does anyone know if freenx is being maintained by anyone? seems like a new version hasn't come out in some time. the website i have for them is

    http://freenx.berlios.de/

    just trying to make sure I have the latest version of hte server running. Maybe there are some improvements in performance etc....

    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    I've installed FreeNX thru apt-get and I've got problems to setup a gnome session. I've followed the instructions at the start of this post. SSH key authentication works on the nxserver. I've enabled gnome sessions in /etc/nxserver/node.conf . But when I try to connect with the NoMachine NX client after authentication a window pops up for a short time showing the NoMachine logo.

    The /var/log/nxserver.log output:

    NX> 1000 NXNODE - Version 1.4.0-45-SVN OS (GPL)
    NX> 700 Session id: boolean-1000-332E484B92FBC5E168B7151EB796B57D

    NX> 999 Bye
    NX> 1009 Session status: terminating
    NX> 1006 Session status: closed
    NX> 1001 Bye.
    Another question I've got is which protocol nx uses, is it a nx protocol or is it also posible to use GDM + xdmcp on port 177? Because xdmcp is enabled, and it is working with a thin client. But selecting xdm in the Nomachine client results in an error that unix-xdm is not supported.

    Any one know of a breezy repo with AMD 64 packages for freenx? compiling it from source is a nightmare.

    Re: HOWTO: Install FreeNX

    Got it working on the first try. Great instructions.

    I've got one question: will FreeNX start on bootup or do I need to start it manually? I didn't see it anywhere in /etc/init.d
