View Full Version : Help configure free nx server

15th June 2012, 04:08 AM
I just install free nx server in fedora 16 i686 (kde).
But I don't know how to configure it. I want to connect using nx client from a windows machine.

Thx in advance

Which version did you install?

Try http://www.nomachine.com/installation.php and http://www.nomachine.com/configuration.php if you installed NX 3.5

Try http://www.nomachine.com/installation-preview.php and http://www.nomachine.com/configuration-preview.php if you installed NX 4 preview

I didn't download it from nomachine. I installed from yum. (yum install freenx-server)

I have an old page on it--probably completely outdated. It's one of those things where the docs on their site are about 4 years old and useless.


But I don't know if that page is any use anymore either, to be honest. I only run it on CentOS, but the Fedora install, at the time I used it, was completely lacking documentation, and in addition, needed some tricks to get it working.

On the other hand, last time I tried the nomachines one, it wasn't working properly for me either, but at that point, a friend was making a CentOS package, wanted it tested, I did, and it worked, so the nomachines issue was quite possibly something simple I overlooked, then never went back to checking.

Thanks for replying, but I tried following the tutorial, but never got it working. I finally ended up using VNC.
