Well, yes but it is for the user "nx" - not the real user. I've found you
have to dig around in your file system at the server end to see where it has
put the keys. On the client end you can paste the new key into the
appropriate dialogue box in the nxclient software. I'm using an older
freenx server and its key is located at:
On the server end, I've disabled password access to ssh on port 22. This
upset nx a bit, but I ran a second sshd daemon on localhost port 2022. You
can tell the nxserver end to pass users through this by setting
in its node.conf file (on my setup this is at /opt/NX/etc/node.conf
Doing this allows you open only port 22 to the big bad web and only those
with the correct signature can get in so it lessens the chance of breakins.
I suspect the need to do this may have disappeared with later versions.
