After some more fiddling with nx I found that iptables is blocking
connections to my server at work when attempting to access from home.
The server is behind a fortigate firewall. The server is running
K12LTSP 4.1 (Fedora 3) with iptables running as a second layer of
I have port 22 opened and can log into the server from home using
pub/private-key. When I try to access it with nxclient it logs in ok,
authenticates, but then times out without ever negotiating an
X-connection. If I turn iptables off on the server (using a remote ssh
console), I can make the connection just fine. I configured nx to use
port 22 in /etc/nxserver/node.conf, but evidently it is still being
blocked by iptables.
I am using ssl to encrypt the connection over the Internet, which works
fine so long as iptables is turned off.
What setting do I need to add to iptables to allow nx traffic to pass
