nomachine server configuration error


I am trying, so far in vain, to connect to nxserver from tha nomachine nx client.
I checked the most obvious first, nxserver is running, user is added, ssh is running, correct key in che client config...
All seems to be going well then the client throws an error: Server configuration error. Cannot log in. Contact your administrator...which is me.
This is the output from the client:

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 9245
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command

Sorry bout the typo's

After mush searching of the forums I finally found a solution to my problem.

The server needs to access the ~/.nx directory in the users home but it lacks privileges.

To fix the problem you need to:

sudo chown username:username /home/rob/.nx

Works a treat now. Also, you have to make sure the key on the client side is the same as the server.

cat /usr/NX/share/keys/default.id_dsa.key

then copy and paste the output to a file (forgot how to use pipes...) and transfer the key to the client.
