After installation of FreeNX

Be careful what I show you isn't the secure way to run/install NX! But it's ok for home use.

nxsetup --install --setup-nomachine-key
nxserver --adduser <your_normal_user>
nxserver --passwd <your_normal_user>

Ok - now make sure the following options are enabled in your /etc/ssh/sshd_conf

PasswordAuthentication yes
HostbasedAuthentication yes
X11Forwarding yes

and restart it.

If you have a firewall make sure you have opened the following ports

ssh 3000 1000 4080 5000:5200

To watch the status restart or list your users use th following commands

nxserver --listusers
nxserver --status
nxserver --stop
nxserver --start

To connect to your server use knx oder better (with session resume) the FreeNX client.

I hope it works for you. Have fun!
