A real noob need help on FreeNX

Recommended Posts

I am a newbie in linux and I am trying to use freenx to remote access my FC6 box (in LAN) in work place from my home windows box. My questions are:

 

1.To install free on linux, all I need to do is "yum install freenx"? Nothing else and not even downloading the package?

 

2.I cannot do port forwarding on the router in my work place, what can I do and what to fill in in the "Host" field in the NX client? I know both ext. and int. IP of the fedora box.

 

3.I did a "yum update", and it says "clearing bah bah bah/removing bah bah bah". After it is finished, it seems many things are removed, I can't even see the things in my panel.

I rebooted it, and it seems to be fine. I did "yum install freenx" again and it says "nothing to do".

I would like to ask is there is any data/program lose due to the "yum update"?

 

Thank you very much for any help. bow*

So, first up. Yes that is all you need to do to install freenx (yum downloads the package for you and installs it).

 

Next you will require the SSH port to be forwarded to your box. Knowing the internal and external IP won't help you. So at this point you will be stuck and unable to do anything. Without a forward there is no way in.

 

yum update doesn't ever remove data, it will simply update packages that are already on your system.
