Overview: I want to connect from a Windows 7 workstation to a Fedora 15 Computer using FreeNX
How I did it
On Fedora install FreeNX Server (Note: you already need to have the OpenSSH server installed and working)
yum install freenx-server
This is all I had to do to get it working on Fedora 15… There is more info at http://www.kernelhardware.org/fedora-11-x86_64-setup-freenx-server/.
Download and Install the NoMachine Windows Client http://www.nomachine.com/download.php
I configured the Windows client with a connection name hostname and tried to connect and got:
NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
NX> 204 Authentication failed.
Public key authentication is failing because the Windows client has the incorrect private key installed in the client.
Firstly copy the
/etc/nxserver/client.id_dsa.key file from the FreeNX Server to the to the Windows Client.
