Using X2Go / FreeNX

BSOE runs a FreeNX service on a number of our BSOE Dance Linux servers. This service can be access via download X2Go from a number of open source software providers. In order to connect from the commercial X2Go client, after the client end software is installed make sure to set up your connection profile with the following two options:

  • SSH port protocol
  • Use the Mate option in the "Session type"

X2Go client configuration

Users using the X2Go Version 4.* client will need to configure their connections to use SSH

(port22), and session type  MATE.
