OpenSUSE :: Freenx Fails In 11.2 / Fix It?

May 3, 2010

I'm having some trouble with FreeNX on OpenSuse 11.2. I followed the instructions on this page to set up the server on my linux machine, and I'm connecting to it with the Nomachine client for Windows, running on Windows XP x64. It refuses to complete the connection, and the console log from the NX client is as follows code...

I've searched this forum and many web pages on google, but I haven't found anyone with this exact problem. the fact that it can't stat those files suggests to me that it might be a permissions thing, but I wouldn't expect non-root users to EVER have permission to files in any subdirectory of /var, so I sincerely doubt that they would release a program that requires read/write access to such files, and therefore, I am pretty certain it's a configuration issue, although I'm not experienced enough with the NX server to know where to start looking for the failure. Previous attempts with FreeNX and opensuse 10.3 (I am testing 11.2 for a possible upgrade of all of our linux systems here at my office) yielded totally successful results. the fact that there is no NX server included in the DVD distribution of 11.2 seems a little strange to me, as it was included with 10.3, but this is of little significance compared to my real issues.

Slackware :: FreeNX - Authentication Works But Session Fails

Jul 21, 2010

I installed freenx-0.7.3-i486-1alien.tgz on the server (with Slack 12.1), all according to instructions. I installed the no machine nxclient 3.4.0-7 on the client (with Slack 12.2). I ran setup and configured. I used the default no-machine keys, not custom ones. Since authentication failed at the beginning, I enabled DBauthentication, and added my user and password, which seemed to allow authentication to occur.

Here is my node.conf:
# node.conf
#
# This file is provided by FreeNX. It should be placed either into
# /etc/nxserver/node.conf (FreeNX style) or /usr/NX/etc/node.conf
# (NoMachine NX style).....

OpenSUSE :: FreeNX On 11 Versus 11.1 - What's The Difference

Jan 13, 2011

I have a script that basically adds a zypper repo, then proceeds to install and configure FreeNX.To add the repo:

Code:

zypper addrepo Index of /repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop/openSUSE_11.1 RemoteDesktop

To install FreeNX & it's relevant dependencies:

Code:

zypper install FreeNX

To setup and configure FreeNX:

Code:

nxsetup --install --setup-nomachine-key --clean --purge
sed -i 's/AllowUsers idcuser/AllowUsers idcuser nx/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
service sshd reload

[code]....

After completing these steps on version 11, I can immediately open the FreeNX client (windows 7), and connect. On 11.1, at the very end of the FreeNX connect, just after "Dowloading the session information", I get:

Code:

NX> 105 startsession --link="lan" --backingstore="1" --encryption="1" --cache="16M" --images="64M" --shmem="1" --shpix="1" --strict="0" --composite="1" --media="0" --session="170.224.164.19" --type="unix-gnome" --geometry="1274x956" --client="winnt" --keyboard="pc102/en_US" --screeninfo="1274x956x16+render"

Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).NX> 280 Exiting on signal: 15 I've googled this to death, and tried a bunch of random changes to both ssh and nxserver, but I can't seem to get rid of it. What might have changed from 11 to 11.1 that could cause this behavior change? The NXserver seems to be configured and running identical on both systems.

OpenSUSE :: No Window Menus In Freenx?

May 3, 2011

I recently upgraded an openSUSE 11.3 install to 11.4 by downloading the DVD, burning it, & chosing the upgrade option upon booting to it. I used all the upgrade defaults. Upon coming back up, I added the FreeNX zypper repository & installed the latest FreeNX. Connecting via FreeNX works, but I'm not able to see any window menus on any of my applications. They get stuck to the top left corner of the screen &/or they don't have the window border surrounding the window (as in the top bar that contains the minimize/maximize buttons).

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX For People Upgrading To 11.3?

Jul 18, 2010

Just incase anyone is suffering from the same problem as I was after upgrading to 11.3 that there was no such file or directory in /var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionID. I found the answer in another forum and thought i would post it here. Basically there is a change in the openssl library used to calculate the md5sum used by nx which stopped it from connecting.

Putting
COMMAND_MD5SUM="md5sum"
at the end of /etc/nxserver/node.conf fixes the problem.

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX Server Not Running But Responding (?!)?

Feb 28, 2010

I've been working on getting NoMachine and FreeNX working together ... and they're both working well, listening on different ports (guess I should write a howto). At some point I decided to write an init script to control FreeNX behaviour (start, stop, status, setup), since the Ubuntu version has one (called freenx-server) and openSUSE doesn't, but I noticed that it was not necessary, as FreeNX got started automatically... but how ? I could not find any init.d script or command which would start the FreeNX server. Indeed it wasn't actually running :

Code:
neelix:~ # /usr/bin/nxserver --status
NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 3.2.0-73 OS (GPL, using backend: 3.2.0)

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX / Nomachine NXclient - Thread (nxserver Now Broken?)

Sep 16, 2010

This thread (nxserver now broken?) has inspired me to install FreeNX and the client from nomachine on openSUSE-11.2 (this is the version used on both, server and client machine). The good news is: basically it works. I can connect and get the desktop. However, I have some trouble with the keyboard. Up and Down arrow keys do not work. The up arrow triggers a screen snapshot. The down arrow key does nothing. I tried to connect using qtnx as well. This does not work. Result is:

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Get FreeNX With Nomachine Client To Work - "Cannot Initialize Display Service"

Mar 1, 2011

I have been spending hours and hours trying to find a "Remote installation for Dummies" ....kind of step-by-step approach. But after several evenings googling and reading. This is how far I got: I have installed FeeNX on my server and after sudo nxserver -- status I get a reply like this:

NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL. using backend: 3.4.0)
NX> 110 NX Server is running
NX> 999 Bye

so to me that looks like the server process is running. I also installed the windows Nomachine on my laptop and hooked it all up in my local network (so no routers whatsoever) I disabled the firewalls on both my laptop and my server. just in case configured the client for port 22 and the fixed IP address of my server. even imported the users.id_dsa.pub key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use The FreeNX

Sep 23, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 and I've set up FreeNX server on it. I use the Nomachine client for Windows to log into my home computer while I'm at work.The other day I tried opening Chrome browser and nothing happened. So I clicked it a few more times and nothing. So I went ahead and just used Firefox.When I got home that day I physically went to the computer and woke it up and about 20 Chrome windows were open. So it looks like Chrome is launching in the wrong session. I'm logged in locally and through NX with the same user. Should I create a different user to log into the machine locally? Is there some way to bring these open windows over to my remote session? A couple more things... the first time this happened I had opened Chrome locally and left it open. Also Dropbox does this as well. And locally there is an icon in the top notifications for Dropbox but not on my remote session. So I'm thinking if an app is already running locally can I not open a new instance on my remote session?

Ubuntu :: Configure FreeNX To Not Use Encryption

Feb 2, 2010

I like FreeNX, but it makes the system sluggish sometimes. The server is on Ubuntu and the Windows client are both on the same switch on a private network, and won't ever be use over public internet. I see in the client that I can disable encryption, but how do I do it in the FreeNX server end?

Ubuntu :: Install FreeNX In U10.4 Lucid?

May 3, 2010

Anyone know if it's possible to install FreeNX in Lucid.

I've tried but get an error.

These are the steps I followed code...

Is there anyway to get this installed? Do I need to wait for FreeNX to be updated for Lucid or something? Or does anyone have any suggestion for a RDP server and client? I don't want to use VNC it's too laggy.

CentOS 5 Networking :: FreeNX - Cannot Get It To Connect?

Feb 12, 2010

I am usually the last one to post on forums, but I can't for the life of me get FreeNX working on my CentOS box. I have also read many posts, many how-to's, many troubleshooting guides, and absolutely nothing is working for me. It's Crazy. First of all, I've installed FreeNX before, with little to no trouble. I am not completely green at the linux command line, but I am still no expert. I'm hoping one of you guru's out there can lend me a bit of a hand.

Here goes, I've installed FreeNX onto my CentOS 5.4 dedicated box, using the how-to [URL].. I've done everything, letter by letter, on the how-to. (Installed CentOS, configured sshd_config, added users in AllowUsers, created nx user, imported keys.. etc) At this point, I could not connect to my box, with the error message:

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 336
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options

Debian Configuration :: PasswordAuthentication In Openssh And Freenx?

May 31, 2011

I have VNC working but I like how freenx starts in it's own session. It is handy for when my account is not logged into the server and VNC hasn't started.I have freenx working but it requires sshd_config to enable PasswordAuthentication. This isn't a major security problem at the moment since I have deny.hosts running but I still don't like it enabled. I would much rather only use the keys.

Ubuntu :: FreeNX Authentication Failed For User?

Sep 24, 2010

I just finished following the instructions found here to install FreeNX on my ubuntu 10.04 server. It went smoothly, just used the default keys.Once I had that all set up I scrolled down and followed the instructions to set up the client and that went fine as well.My problem is with actually using the program.When I try to log in I get the error "Authentication failed for user tony" (my username). Do I need to change anything in the configuration other than setting it to use gnome and putting in the host address?oes it make a difference that my ssh settings only allow rsa login? I logged into the server with ssh to see if that helped but it did not. I even tried using the ssh key with the FreeNX Client but that did not work

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Sound To Work In FreeNX?

Mar 7, 2011

how to get sound to work in FreeNX. After a couple of google searches I'm still stumped to as how I'm supposed to get it to work. The first thing that I'm wondering is: is it possible for a server system without a sound card to actually stream audio towards a client with the NoMachine NX Client (multimedia enabled)? If so then the problem gets a bit more complex. I've installed the ESD Sound Server and PulseAudio. But how am I supposed to do this configuration ? Whenever I go to gstreamer-properties I get the choice for ESD which I choose for my output and ALSA for my input. Still no sound. The configurationfile has been changed so that the libraries for ESD get loaded in /etc/nxserver/node.conf but also still nothing.

Ubuntu :: FreeNX No Password Login - NoMachine?

Apr 25, 2011

So I don't know exactly if this is where to put this. Because I think this might be NoMachine's problem, but I'm not sure. I am trying to set up FreeNX, and I got it working to connect from my work laptop (windows 7) to my home computer (ubuntu 10.04).

I have it going on a different SSH port, and it claims I'm using custom Keys. But, NoMachine still requires me to put in a password to connect. But I can't do that because I have my ssh setup to key-authentication ONLY.So I can't connect to my home machine UNLESS I turn on password-authentication also. But I don't want password authentication on. So, how can I connect without using passwords? Do I need to use a different client other than NoMachine NX-client? Or is this a setup I have wrong in my ubuntu stuff.

I figure it must be NoMachine, because I can't even attempt to login if I don't first put in a password.

Software :: Enable Freenx-server With Pam / Ldap?

Currently I have successfully setup a server as remote freenx-server terminal and I may login to this system using local users.

As I want a central ldap based user management, I have setup a working ldaps configuration. I am able to login as a ldap user via ssh.

Now the strange issue I am facing is that the freenx-server won't let me login to my server anymore when I enable the following setting in /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

Naturally if I disable UsePAM, ldap based logins will fail because they are passed through PAM.
