I have used FreeNX before on Suse with no problem, but with FCi6, I cannot get it to authenticate. I followed the instructions at http://fedoranews.org/contributors/rick_stout/ssh/ <http://fedoranews.org/contributors/rick_stout/ssh/>, but I still get that the client closed session with signal 15 and unauthorized user nx. Also on the client machine, (WinXP) I get Authenticating user nx, then authentication failed. Why should it be trying to authenticate user nx and not my user name? Searched config files for something, but found nothing.
I have nx working on an FC5 server, but I couldn't get it to work on a
different FC6 server. I can't figure out why. Has anyone made the freenx
server work on FC6?
Art, here are some tips:

1) In the past, I found I had to run "passwd -uf nx" to enable the nx user. The rpm didn't do it properly for some reason.
2) Make sure the client enables SSL encryption.

3) The rpm didn't uninstall properly, which really messed things up. If you try to uninstall it, use rpm -evvv to get a verbose output to see which files are causing trouble.
