Are you trying to connect through your home network or outside your network (i.e. two machines in the same house, or connect to one at home from work)? If you're trying to connect to two machines at home, then you'll need to do this:On the server
(machine you want to connect to
I am assuming you're using Ubuntu. Are you able to ssh to the server? Open a command prompt and type ssh xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx is the IP address). If you can ssh into the server machine, then we can continue. If not, we need to troubleshoot this first before messing with NX.
If you can ssh in:
Install freeNX on the server machine.
sudo apt-get install freenx
There should not be anything to set up. Leave the configuration the way it is.
Next, install the NX client on the machine you want to connect from (i.e. the computer you're trying to use as the remote connection to the server).
Click here for the Windows Client: http://22.214.171.124/download/3.4.0/...nt-3.4.0-7.exe
Click here for the OS X Client: http://126.96.36.199/download/3.4.0/....4.0-8.pkg.zip
Click here for the Linux Client: http://188.8.131.52/download/3.4.0/...4.0-7_i386.deb
Set up the client on the client machine using the connection wizard. Like I said in my previous post, it's pretty straight forward.
Next, you will need to get the ssh key from the server over to the client machine. On the client machine, ssh to the server. Once you're in the server:
The view the ssh key with vi:
Highlight and copy the ssh key. Copy from the beginning all the way to the last dash after "-----END DSA PRIVATE KEY-----"
Exit vi by typing
Now, on the client machine, open the NX client, at the connection dialogue box, click Configure, then click Key and paste that key into the box and click save.
Back to the connection dialogue box, fill in your normal server's username (the one you usually use to sign into the server) and that username's password.
Try to connect.
