[CALUG] nomachine / freenx

Ben and Craig,
Thanks for replying, I have no issues installing the binaries on any of the
OS distributions or Configuring it to my needs. It is just that I was
planning to use it at office and I have won the first battle, where we
switched from F-Secure SSH to OpenSSH. But according to data security and
some issues with eTrust, I cannot have a generic account "nx" on my servers.

I am not sure if I can solve this by compiling this app or if there was
built-in option to achieve this.
I am waiting to hear back from NoMachine support and will share if any I get
any information from them.
