[K12OSN] OT - Question about Freenx

I hope everyone is doing well.

I've recently setup a clean, CentOS 5.1 installation.  I can ssh into
the machine no problem.  I've successfully followed the instructions
found here http://fedoranews.org/contributors/rick_stout/freenx/ and
elsewhere to install via yum the server, and download and install the
nomachine linux client.

I've imported the client.id_dsa.key file from /etc/nxserver into the
client.  SSHD is listening on port 777

But I still am not able to connect.  I've tried both remotely and
locally on the same machine.  I receive the error:

The NX service is not available or the NX access was disabled on host

Clicking detail gives me:

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 3880
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
NX> 200 Connected to address: on port: 777
NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
Welcome to the Church Server

NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
NX> 204 Authentication failed.

Running netstat -an |grep 777 gives me:

tcp        0      0     *

I'm at a loss for what the next step would be?

Thank you
