Angry nxserver remote control

Ok anyone know how your supposed to setup the nxservers public key authentication, I could do with a lil help. My nxclient is unable to authenticate with my nxserver I get the following error

NX> 202 Authenticating User: nx
NX> 208 Auth Method: Public key
NX> 204 Authentication failed.

my nxserver has been started however nxserver --status describes an authenticaion problem and says the nxserver has been stopped (even though typing nxserver --start reports its already started :/)

The client appears to be acting like the nxserver hasnt been started.

So is there a way to change the authentication method so it doesnt use encrypted keys?
Or anyone know how I setup the keys between the client and the server?
And are there any important settings I need to change in my sshd_config file for this to work?

Make sure you used --setup-nomachine-key when running nxsetup, this way it won't need any key.
