What are you trying to accomplish ? FreeNX doesn't do any authentication by itself by default; Thats all done by PAM (unless you disabled PAM support). EDIT: Just realized somethin... [by KermitDaFragger]
since some days I try to get freenx (CentOS package 0.7.3) running under CentOS 6.3. It is like found on many websites: First login is successfull, after that all login attempts fail with the negotiation error.
A simple ssh with the same username to the server is successful.
I installed freenx-0.7.3-i486-1alien.tgz on the server (with Slack 12.1), all according to instructions.
I installed the nomachine nxclient 3.4.0-7 on the client (with Slack 12.2).
I ran setup and configured.
Hi all,I have quite a few experience with freenx on other linux distributions, but this is my first time setting up freenx on archlinux. After following the instructions in the wiki, authentication keeps failing no matter what I do. Stuff I've done from the wiki:1. install freenx2. add RSAAuthentication yes AllowUsers someuser nx to sshd_config3. add md5sum to node.conf4.
I've been using FreeNX on my Ubuntu machine for many months and just yesterday I've begun having troubles using it. What happens is that the FreeNX client (which is on my Windows machine) would connect to my Ubuntu machine (both on the same LAN) and it will initialize and connect fine and I would get the FreeNX logo window showing up and it will drop me into my desktop session.
FreeNX is a system that allows you to access your desktop from another machine over the Internet. You can use this to login graphically to your desktop from a remote location. One example of its use would be to have a FreeNX server set up on your home computer, and graphically logging in to the home computer from your work
computer, using a FreeNX client.
