Dear all,

I am trying to use nxclient on a FreeBSD machine (i386, 7.2 Rel). I
installed freenx but I can't figure out how to use it to connect to a
remote machine.  It seems that the port does not put any executable
into any standard path.  If I enter in a terminal:


I get the following message:

getopt: illegal option -- o

I had previously used NXclient but through a GUI interface.  I
couldn't find a way to start a GUI here or even figure out the
required command line syntax (no man pages installed, no --help option

Did anybody know how to make this work (if it actually does..)?

thanks in advance for any suggestion
