nomachine nxserver failure with Fedora 17

I recently did clean installs of Fedora 17.

I then used the Fedora package manager to install the NX 3.5.0 nxclient, nxnode, and nxserver files from the nomachine website.

However, the nxserver service would not start and attempted connections to the nxserver on the machines failed.

I then replaced the default /etc/ssh/sshd_config file from Fedora 17 with the default sshd_config file from a Fedora 16 installation; and after a restart, nxserver now works. Apparently the Fedora 17 default sshd_config file has been munged.

You should see the following:

# /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --status
NX> 900 Connecting to server ...
NX> 110 NX Server is running.
NX> 999 Bye.

Re: nomachine nxserver failure with Fedora 17

I had the same issue. I ended up commenting out the last line below in the sshd_config file and restarting sshd. That fixed my issue.

# The default is to check both .ssh/authorized_keys and .ssh/authorized_keys2
# but this is overridden so installations will only check .ssh/authorized_keys
#AuthorizedKeysFile .ssh/authorized_keys

An alternative is to change the server.cfg and node.cfg in /usr/NX/home to have authorized_keys instead of authorized_keys2. This works in Fedora 20, and when looking for a similar thread found this and thought I would share.
