I have installed FreeNX server on ubuntu 10.04 Desktop and I could connect to the system remotely with NXClient selecting "UNIX" and "GNOME". I want to use the 'shadow' feature of NX and I could not able to connect to this FreeNX computer using "Shadow" and below shows the 'Details' of the error the nxclient shows:

NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 1472
