Remote Linux Desktop How-to

To make this as quick and as painless as possible I will list the command required to get this installed. So open up a terminal as user root.

Type the following command:

yum -y install freenx xorg-x11-fonts-misc

** the above command will pull in all package dependencies and make sure all required files are installed in order to get freenx up and running. **

Now if you are running Fedora 9 / 10 you will have to temporarily disable selinux or the connection will fail.

setenforce 0

This will put selinux into warning mode which will allow you to create an selinux policy file which is recommended.

Also since fedora 9/10 ship with the firewall enabled you might have to add an exception rule but i have not had such an issue in the past since i allow ssh traffic into my system.

Hope that helps you and if you have any questions feel free to post them below and i will answer them as soon as possible.
