Re: FreeNX-kNX Digest, Vol 120, Issue 1

This solution worked for me on the Mac. Can't comment on the deeper issues of how long it will continue to work, but I don't plan on changing our freenx server install anytime soon, and will be hanging on to all known working client installers from now on, as you can't get older versions from NoMachine.

Need a better solution than this, and would be happy to pay for it....just not the small fortune NoMachine would like to charge me......

Cheers

Jon

        Seems the issue relates to NoMachine switching to 'libssh2' by
default in 4.3, from using a 'native' binary ssh client.  See:

https://www.nomachine.com/TR10L04622
https://www.nomachine.com/AR09L00813

Modifying ~/.nx/player.cfg  as described there:

<option key="SSH client mode" value="library" />

to

<option key="SSH client mode" value="native" />

seems to resolve the issue for me.  (Tested with NoMachine Enterprise
Client 4.3.24_1 on win64 to a FreeNX 0.7.2 install on Linux)

        Of course, it's anyone's guess how long they're going to continue
to support "native" ssh clients, especially since Windows doesn't have one
and they have to distribute 'nxssh.exe' for it.  Hopefully they get the
'libssh2' implementation feature-complete and fully compatible with what's
currently possible with the 'native' binaries before they discontinue
'native' SSH support.

Re: FreeNX-kNX Digest, Vol 119, Issue 1

Hi,

Shouldn't 4.x clients be backwards compatible with 3.x servers? I guess freenx hasn't moved on since v3 of NX , so I'm a bit surprised/worried that this has occurred.....

Cheers

Hi list,

I'm getting reports that the new NoMachine 4.3.x clients don't work with
a FreeNX server. At least one other organization seems to have confirmed
that: http://wiki.helpme.engr.scu.edu/index.php/FreeNX

My client gets as far as authenticating and choosing the session, but
seems to hang while starting the session and eventually drops the
connection. Same behaviour with the precise and trusty packages from
ppa:freenx-team/testing.

Does anyone know of a solution for this, besides holding clients at
4.2.x for now?

Hi,

I am suprised that any 4.x client worked with freenx, because
I thought they rewrote the underlaying library for compressing the
x-protocol. You might now see the breakage and I fear it will not
be fixed by no-machine.

Bye Henning

I can confirm that 4.3.x does not work with freenx.  Unfortunately I don't
have a work around.  Would it be possible for anyone with a known good
nomachine_4.2.27_1.exe to post the md5/sha* sum for it?  I found this
binary on filehippo.com and am keen to see if the 4x client improves
end user experience.  Thanks.

Mark

I have set SESSION_LOG_CLEAN=0 in the node.conf, but there is still no logs in the home/.nx directory on my server.  Any help would be appreciated.

Ubuntu PPA follow-up: mate, smbfs

Hi,
Back in March the use of mate with freenx-server was discussed.
Marcelo Shima (Thu, 6 Mar 2014 14:16:44) pointed out that the
freenx-server package was updated to include mate-core as a
satisfactory dependency. Looking at the packages currently under
freenx-team on launchpad, however, I was not able to find a package
that allowed that:

ppa:freenx-team/trusty - freenx-server_0.7.3.zgit.120322.977c28d-0~ppa11
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), debconf (>= 0.5.00) | debconf-2.0, nxagent
(>= 2.1.0-0), openssh-server, openssh-client, netcat, expect, bash (>=
2.05), adduser, binutils, x11-xserver-utils, python, nx-common,
gnome-session | gnome-session-fallback | kde-runtime |
kdebase-workspace-bin | ksmserver | xfce4-session | freenx-rdp |
freenx-vnc | lxde-core

ppa:freenx-team/testing -
freenx-server_0.7.3.zgit.140303.1848.e81c1e4-0~ppa2~trusty
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), debconf (>= 0.5.00) | debconf-2.0, nxagent
(>= 2.1.0-0), openssh-server, openssh-client, netcat, expect, bash (>=
2.05), adduser, binutils, x11-xserver-utils, python, nx-common,
lxde-core | gnome-session-flashback | kde-workspace | xfce4-session |
freenx-vnc | freenx-rdp

(The noticeable difference between the two are that gnome-session is
removed, so e.g. lxde-core is what would want to be installed first.
Am I looking in the wrong place?)

Also, the freenx-smb package is dependent on smbfs, which I saw in
https://bugs.launchpad.net/freenx-server/+bug/1185707 . I have not
attempted to use printing support, but the package as it is is
uninstallable. smbfs has been replaced by cifs-utils, but I have no
idea if it is a drop-in replacement (the latest discussion on this
mailing list seems to be from 2010).

Disable freenx terminal access

Hi,

Is there a way to disable terminal access (or things like custom script access) on freenx? It's doable on the commercial version, according to the guide: https://www.nomachine.com/FR04D01364

Thanks in advance.
Marco

Single application from freenx

Hi,

I'm trying to run and display a single application from a remote freenx server installation. I'm not able to find enough documentation on the same. Can someone guide me on how to do this on a local windows and linux machines.

Also, I prefer if this can be done with opennx client or other opensource clients rather than nomachine client.

Thanks in advance,
Vijay

nx ubuntu

Hi

 

I installed the nx server on my Ubuntu machine ,and installed the nx client in different operation systems (windows 7 ,window xp)

Each time im trying to connect to the same machine it’s using different session(port 2000 ,2001)

My question is how to connect to the same machine with the same port like (2000)

 

Thanks

Re: FreeNX-kNX Digest, Vol 115, Issue 6

Hi Chris,

Sorry - I can’t resist the temptation to delete that log file - even though I know
I shouldn’t!

So the suggestion I read somewhere was to modify the freenx-server startup script that
gets installed along with the package (or possibly when you run nxsetup initially),
from:

> case "$1" in
>         start)
>                 if [ ! -e "/var/run/freenx-server" ]; then
>                         [ ! -d "/tmp/.X11-unix" ] && mkdir -m1755 /tmp/.X11-unix/

to

> case "$1" in
>         start)
>                 if [ ! -e "/var/run/freenx-server" ]; then
>                         [ ! -d "/tmp/.X11-unix" ] && mkdir -m1777 /tmp/.X11-unix/

this worries me slightly as it probably means that anyone on the machine could
kill a running session by getting in there and deleting a lock file (err - I can’t
imagine why anyone would do that …… [embarrassed coughing] ).

So at the moment, following a reboot where the .X0-lock file was regenerated, 
nxnode —agent fails as either a normal user or root with:

> sudo ./nxnode --agent
> [sudo] password for XXX: 
> NX> 1000 NXNODE - Version 3.2.0-74-SVN OS (GPL, using backend: 3.5.0)

> 	If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
> 	and start again'.
> Session: Aborting session at 'Wed May 14 13:48:36 2014'.
> Session: Session aborted at 'Wed May 14 13:48:36 2014'.

I didn’t need to chmod /tmp/.X11-unix as it’s already super permissive, and
seems to now be created this way on a boot.

I’m guessing that my NoMachine session now won’t work (even for MATE), let’s
see:

I was wrong! I can still start new sessions, even thought the nxnode —agent test fails.

If I now end that session and try to start lubuntu:

I get a blank screen, and an eventual timeout with the message: 
(client side)
> Ooops! The connection with the server was lost. Error is 60: Operation timed out.

Setting the log level to debug (6), and emptying and recreating /var/log/nxserver.log, then trying
to start a lubuntu session again puts this in the log:
(client side)
> Ooops! The connection with the server was lost. Error is 22: Invalid argument

This seems to be the natural order of things, since when I connect the 2nd time I always get the blank screen
and timeout:

(client side)
the usual error is 60 timeout.

FYI I can run Lubuntu on the console, so I don’t *think* it’s a problem with the installation
on this machine…..

And of course, starting a FreeNX Lubuntu session works absolutely fine on my other Ubuntu box. Grrrr.

Both run 13.10. Nothing immediately obvious as to what’s different.

Hmmmm

okay this is really getting weird

Hi,

So bizarrely I can now start a gnome2 (i.e. MATE) session on this troublesome machine, but not lubuntu!?!?!

I am still convinced this is either something related to the user account, or potentially a permissions
problem on /tmp/.X11-unix

I have read that the freenx-script needs to be hacked to replace the line which creates /tmp/.X11-unix with
1755 permissions to a more
permissive 1777

However I’ve not seen anything that suggests this folder should be owned by nx…..let me explain.

If I change the ownership of /tmp/.X11-unix to be user=nx, group=root I can then run:
/usr/lib/nx/nxnode —agent

and bingo, a blank screen appears on the client.

If I change the ownership back to root, were back to nxnode —agent just saying that it: Cannot establish
any listening sockets etc
and nothing appears on the client.

This is reproducible across both of my ubuntu 13.10 machines, perhaps arguing against it being a user
account problem.

So is there anything that I am missing that might account for why Gnome(ish) works, but lubuntu doesn’t?

Cheers, Jon
