Ensure that this line is not commented out:

Setup NX Server

nxserver --adduser craig
nxserver --passwd craig

touch /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/known_hosts
cd /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/
chown nx:root known_hosts

vi /etc/nxserver/node.conf

Install NX client

Depends on your operating system, in my case it was windows https://www.nomachine.com/download

Setup Client

Grab DSA key from here that you will need for the client
vi /etc/nxserver/client.id_dsa.key
