The file "client.id_dsa.key" should reside in /etc/nx*/ or /var/lib/nx*/. You can copy it over with say SSH. Which user you can copy it as depends on the access permissions. First try to find the file
find /etc/nx* /var/lib/nx* -type f -name client.id_dsa.key -ls
or over ssh
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "find /etc/nx* /var/lib/nx* -type f -name client.id_dsa.key -ls"
If you get no results but only "Permission denied" then the file is in a directory only root has access rights to. Best SSH into the server as unprivileged user then, use Sudo for the command or su to root and try again. Finally copy the key from the server, let's say for example it's at /etc/NXServer/client.id_dsa.key, with
scp /etc/NXServer/client.id_dsa.key remote_user@client_machine:/home/remote_user/
Here's a HOWTO. It's for Centos but should work for Fedora as well: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/FreeNX and it's got pictures
