FreeNx desktop sharing feature


I have gotten FreeNX to work the NX-Client I got from nomachine.com by starting a new session but I am having trouble sharing a running session. On the client side using Desktop VNC, I get:

Code:
Info: Established X server connection
Error: Failure reading from the peer proxy
Error: Connection with remote peer broken.
Error: Please check the state of your network and retry.
Session: Terminating session at 'Tue Nov 3 22:09:09 2009'.
On the server side, I get:

Code:
Info: Established X client connection.                                               
TightVNC Viewer version 1.3.9                                                        

Usage: /usr/bin/vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] [<HOST>][:<DISPLAY#>]
       /usr/bin/vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] [<HOST>][::<PORT#>]  
       /usr/bin/vncviewer [<OPTIONS>] -listen [<DISPLAY#>] 
       /usr/bin/vncviewer -help                            

<OPTIONS> are standard Xt options, or:
        -via <GATEWAY>                
        -shared (set by default)      
        -noshared                     
        -viewonly                     
        -fullscreen                   
        -noraiseonbeep                
        -passwd <PASSWD-FILENAME> (standard VNC authentication)
        -encodings <ENCODING-LIST> (e.g. "tight copyrect")     
        -bgr233                                                
        -owncmap                                               
        -truecolour                                            
        -depth <DEPTH>                                         
        -compresslevel <COMPRESS-VALUE> (0..9: 0-fast, 9-best) 
        -quality <JPEG-QUALITY-VALUE> (0..9: 0-low, 9-high)    
        -nojpeg                                                
        -nocursorshape                                         
        -x11cursor                                             
        -autopass                                              

Option names may be abbreviated, e.g. -bgr instead of -bgr233.
See the manual page for more information.
I'm not sure what command line arguments FreeNX is passing to tightVNC for it to fail and I don't know if there any options I should modify in /etc/nxserver/node.conf
How should fix, sounds like a simple problem, I did some google'in 'freenx tightvnc' but both return different results. Does anyone knows anything about this???

what has VNC got to do with anything?? NX is a VNC replacement, run via the nxserver and nxnode processes. Where does VNC figure?
