   Thanks, yea, but I don't think he's maintaining it any longer?
   In ports it's version 1.4.x, but nomachine.com has latest version has
   My friend emailed nomachine.com and he said they refused to support
   any of the xBSD or offer any help on getting a working port for the
   xBSD world.
   I'm guessing that is the reason why it's so out of date and broken. :/
   Are their any alternatives besides VNC?
   We have that and it's working good (TightVNC tunneled though SSH), but
   would like to just run one 'window' and have it displayed on our

Anyone get the freeNX server working from nomachine?

When I try to build it from /usr/ports/net/freenx it says it is broken 
under xorg 7.2

I've upgrade to xorg 7.3.x and modified the make file and it builds 
everything but nxagent, so it fails to `make install`

install: /usr/ports/net/nxserver/work/nx-X11/programs/Xserver/nxagent: 
No such file or directory

Yeah, I tried messing around with this a few months ago, it tried to 
compile and at the end (which was a lengthy job) it turned out to be a 
waste.  I was told before to get in touch with the maintainer of the 
port and discuss it further.

Funny though, mine failed on nxnode :P
