Accessing NoMachine NX Server as root


IN a default installation on NX server root access is disabled. To allow root login just follow those simple steps.

Edit file:
/usr/NX/etc/server.cfg

and substitute line reading

#EnableAdministratorLogin = "0" 
to:
EnableAdministratorLogin = "1"
save the file and exit.

and run in shell as a root user:

/usr/NX/bin/nxserver --useradd root

this is it. Changes will take affect immediately.
