If you are using freenx on the server side, remember that it defaults to making 
a unique key per install, so you have to paste the key from the server's 
client.id_dsa.key into the client key config screen. Also, the first connection 
happens as the nx user so your login/password can be passed over the encrypted 
connection for the real user.
