    Simple request: If you have your NX server version 6+ working on Linux such that it will authenticate NX clients accessing the server via SSH, please paste here the uncommented lines

    # cat /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg  | grep -v \# | sort -u

    Assume I have ‘NoMachine Enterprise Desktop v6+’ or  ‘Workstation v6+’ Subscription for Linux. I don’t care for NX protocol or port 4000. I only care about standard ssh authentication over port 22 using trivial Linux shadow/pam/ssh/sss services under Linux.

    Thanks

    Very interesting! I didn’t have to do anything on the server (after a 2nd fresh install). I just set the v6+ client to use SSH on port 22, and somehow the server picked up the connection.  Inbound port 4000 to the server is blocked. I guess the developers at NX know what they are doing.

    Thanks

    Something obviously went wrong when you first installed – possibly old lic files interfering from an earlier version.

    SSH is meant to work out of the box, so when the user selects in SSH in the connection set-up, the rest is done for them.
