There was a problem a long time ago with one version of nx/freenx for
CentOS ... it now works OK.

I will verify that I am using the latest clients from nomachine.  I was
earlier this month

ok ... all these connecting clients connecting to a CentOS-4 freenx/nx
server via port 22 and encrypt traffic mode on the client:

Windows version of client 1.5.0-138 (on WinXP) ... works perfect

Windows version of client 1.5.0-138 (on Win2000) ... works perfect

Windows version of client 1.5.0-138 (on Win2003 Server) ... works

Linux version of client 1.5.0-135 (on CentOS-3) ... works perfect

Linux version of client 1.5.0-135 (on CentOS-4) ... works perfect

Linux version of client 1.5.0-135 (on FedoraCore-3) ... works perfect
