WOW!  A few choices.  in checking the ssh configuration file, I 
am setup using password authentication - not the best choice.  If 
I change that to NO, is it easy to change my ssh client?  One 
client I use is SSH Tectia.  Of course, this will require a 
change in FreeNX.

FreeNX will be my first install.  After that I may try some of 
the other suggested methods.

Many thanks to all...
