I am using ~amd64 so I installed;


Wow, This was really easy to set up with Gentoo as the developers have done all the hard word.
After the emerge I did as instructed :)

LOG: postinst
To complete the installation, run:
 nxsetup --install --setup-nomachine-key --clean --purge
This will use the default Nomachine SSH key

I did not have to do anything but change the ssh port to listen on. I left /etc/nxserver/node.conf with the defaults except;

# The port number where local 'sshd' is listening.

I set up a user for my sessions;

useradd -m -G users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash john
passwd john

I checked what groups my everyday user were in from /etc/groups

router setup

Port Forward Guide

I did not use the Port Range Forward, I just used Port Forward;


Next it is as simple as downloading the client and then;

tar xzvf nxclient-3.3.0-6.x86_64.tar.gz
mv NX /usr
cd /usr/NX/bin

That is it :)

Next I changed all my passwords to long and I hope hard to crack. The only question I have is in using the default ssh key.
It is working so I am unsure exactly how to go about setting up my own ssh keys. I don't want to mess up now.
I can now check out my home box from work, which is cool.
