Works great. Don't forget to add the user to /etc/sudoers

Good to hear you got it working, glad to be of some assistance.

Didnt even think of that one as I always set up a user other than root before installing any software.

Oops, sorry sb4100, yeah thats right I gave you the wrong directory listing.
You need to uncomment that and edit to your port number. There is one entry near the top and another one a way down abit.

Too check if NXserver is running type:

/usr/NX/bin/nxserver --status

at the command prompt

hi
i believe i have installed all three but, how do i get the services login, as i have tried logging in as root and it comes up as user cannot be used for nx.
i didnt have the ability to edit the shh port as it comes up no directory
i also had to install some dependencys which i did.
although i have checked in sftp and i can see server.cfg in /usr/NX/etc, and this is what i can find to ssh
#
# Specify the TCP port where the NX server SSHD daemon is running.
#
#SSHDPort = "22"

#
thanks

What I do when installing is the following:

$ sudo -s
$ cd /usr/local/src/
$ wget http://64.34.161.181/download/3.4.0/...0-7_x86_64.deb
$ wget http://64.34.161.181/download/3.4.0/...-11_x86_64.deb
$ wget http://64.34.161.181/download/3.4.0/...-12_x86_64.deb
$ dpkg -i nxclient_3.4.0-7_x86_64.deb
$ dpkg -i nxnode_3.4.0-11_x86_64.deb
$ dpkg -i nxserver_3.4.0-12_x86_64.deb

Those links are for 64 bit, for 32 bit use the 32bit links at http://www.nomachine.com/select-pack...?os=linux&id=1

Once installed go to /usr/NX/bin/server.cfg and remove # on lines relating to ssh ( 2 lines ) and set your ssh port number there to.

Only issues I have had is making sure all gnome dependancies are installed to be able to get the desktop to display. But I just do aptitude install gnome and that pretty much does it.

Then you just need to set up the details of your host(remote) machine on your client(local) machine. Obviously you need NX on your local machine too. If your using windows you can get that at http://www.nomachine.com/download-client-windows.php

And you should be good to go. Any probs come on back.

I did this install yesterday.. The only real problem was Freenx install but this is what I did. U can leave the sudo if your loged in as root:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freenx-team

sudo apt-get update

sudo aptitude install freenx-server

For the NX server look at these 2 sites:

I guess the top 1 is best but really I have no experience with it.
Yes everything you need is at that top link for NX Server.
And all very simple and straight forward to install, just download the version you require and install using the instructions there.

All servers have SSH access, through which you use the commands supplied by Freshwire. If you are a Windows user, look into "PuTTy".

hi
thanks for reply,
but im unsure how to do this, as you only get the sftp access when choosing this option from the manager.

thanks again

hi
i have noticed that it is available for installation by the manager but that edition doesn't allow for remote desktop, does anyone know how to get it running so that i can use it as remote desktop.

i have installed 10.04 before via upgrades but there is some issues with doing it that way. such as some features come up there missing and some minor errors.

thanks

just that i cant keep using this old edition anymore is just no longer practical.

sorry aswell i posted this in the wrong forum by accident, could you move it over please. thanks
