The DSA key on your client and server doesn´t match.

If you are using Nomachines client do as follows:
- open the dialog where you choose where your are connecting to
- press Configure
- press Key in the new window
- in the third window you see a DSA key

that key and the key found in /etc/nxserver/client.id_dsa.key should be 
the same. If you can ssh to your box with putty you can copy&paste the 
key to your NX client.


> I uninstalled the nxserver from my k12ltsp server (centos), and used the add/remove programs to install freenx.  I created a new session on my Windows XP workstation and tried to connect.  I'm getting a message that says "The NX service is not available or the NX access was disabled on host".
> The details say:
> NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 2960
> 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: 22
> NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
> NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
> NX> 204 Authentication failed.
> I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  I noticed when I installed the FreeNX on my k12 box that there is some sort of proxy system for x11 called NX installed.  Could this be the issue?  How to fix?  Is there a way (GUI) to configure FreeNX on my k12 box?  Thanks!
