gui remote to slackware fluxbox vnc / nxserver


i'm trying to get a gui remote access to my slackware server.
I installed nxserver on slackware an it runs. Also i installed
the nxserver client on my windows laptop.
I can connect with putty from windows laptop to the slackware machine.

When i try to connect with nxserver i got a message something like this: "nx service not available or disabled".

As i am not a Linux Pro i hope someone here can help me.
I g**gled a lot but found nothing about a gui remote access from windows to slackware fluxbox.

what i NOT want is a connection like one get with xwing. i just wanna see by remote what's going on, on the slackware machine screen.
if the solution with nxserver doesn't work i also can try vnc or anything else which just works.

hope someone can help me, if you need further informations i will supply with but at the moment i don't know what exactly someone would need to help me out.

thx in advance!

I also had problems getting NX Client to talk directly to a remote Linux box running NX Server. If you're still interested in using NX, I did the following here to get NX Client working:

- Set up putty on the windows box to create a tunnel from on the windows box back to the remote Linux box;
- Created the NX Client entries to connect to on port 22 instead of connecting directly to my remote Linux box.
