RPS Remote Desktop?

Did you try to restart the nxserver ?

/etc/init.d/nxserver restart
/etc/init.d/nxclient restart

I know there is a problem if you create the user after... Does the directory .nx exist in /home/youruser/ ?

What file would it most likely be in if there is an error for NX server? I can try conencting again and then check the log. Is it possible an ovh tech can try get it working?

I used http://florianjensen.com/2007/12/31/...erver-with-nx/ btw

afaik i didn't see anything wrong in the logs but its pretty hard to read, some of those files are huge.

28-03-2008, 19:13
syslog, messages, daemon.log, auth.log

28-03-2008, 19:09
Doubt its my computer, i don't have a firewall or anything.

apache2 debug fsck mail.warn syslog
apparmor dist-upgrade gdm messages syslog.0
apt dmesg installer mysql udev
aptitude dmesg.0 kern.log mysql.err user.log
auth.log dmesg.1.gz lastlog mysql.log wtmp
boot dmesg.2.gz lpr.log news wtmp.1
btmp dpkg.log mail.err oco
btmp.1 faillog mail.info pycentral.log
daemon.log fontconfig.log mail.log scrollkeeper.log

What one should I check?

28-03-2008, 19:03
Did you check if it's not your firewall ??

Or the logs (/var/log) on the server ?

28-03-2008, 18:55
Done that, it connects, opens a big window with the nx logo in it, closes and popups a box saying:

The connection with the remote server was shut down.
Please check the state of your network connection.

Anyone know whats wrong?

You have to create a "normal" user :

adduser  myname

I need help, how do I fix it?

Yes, he can indeed...

But it's not ready set-up with Ubuntu server as it is Ubuntu desktop, likewise the other distros.
