LXer: HOWTO Install FreeNX Server on SUSE 10

Published at LXer:

Not long ago, I reviewed SUSE Linux 10 and found that they had included the latest version of FreeNX (a free version of NoMachine's NX Server) on the installation media. I'd never really tried FreeNX at that point but had heard some good things about it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Well, once it was installed and working I have to say I was immediately impressed by how simple it was to setup and how well (read: fast) it performed over a WAN connection. I was literally able to get my desktop at home from anywhere else in the world and get near-local speed. Normally, working on a remote system is alright until you need to type in any shape or form. There was almost no delay from the time I'd press a key to the time it would show up on the screen. This is what sold me on FreeNX and prompted me to offer to write a HOWTO on the topic. I was overwhelmed with email from our readers asking that I write it... so here we are!

Hmm, I wonder if you might consider writing a how to on the web companion for NX? I can find little information on getting it going. Of course my knowledge of apache servers is terrible.Thanks for the original directions I found them quite valuble.

Perhaps you can help me resolve what I thought was going to be a simple problem. I have switched to SuSe 10 for all of my personal computers at home and so far am very pleased. Due to a health related problem I currently have restrictions going up and down stairs. I have set up my laptop in the living room and wish to remote desktop into my main system, the one I'm on now, on the second floor.

I use the K desktop environment and there are two programs provided for this function. Remote desktop sharing (Krfb) and Remote Desktop Connection. (Krdc) This works great over the local LAN in the house but the problem is that when I initiate a connection from the laptop down stairs someone has to be at the keyboard to accept the connection on the system upstairs. Is there a way I can use these program without having someone on the other end to “push the button”? Any help will be appreciated as I am currently house bound and spend LOTS of time on the computer during the day.

Sort of the wrong thread for this but the configuration of the server end upstairs (krfb) has an option for accepting without confirmation connections you should navigate to this through Suse--Start etc.
