FreeNX session


I just tried FreeNX. I work great. I am thinking about uninstalling the vino/vnc on my machine.

However, I'd like to know if FreeNX can access the session that open locally on the server. I tried session 0 and 1, none of them can access the local session.

For default vnc, the connection will let you access the local session on the server. Can FreeNX do that?

I wouldn't use FreeNX myself, if it's only for a couple of admin style connections, the real NX server will do this much nicer. Either way it's possible, but if you choose a "shadow" session then with the right config, which is detailed here, you can do this fine, apparently using a VNC loopback system. http://www.nomachine.com/ar/view.php?ar_id=AR11B00098

If I remote access to do some work with FreeNX, then log out and leave the session running.
When I log in to the terminal locally, can I access that session that I created previously?

I cannot find a document explaining that specifically.
