  1. The first time you connect to a server, the NX client and the server will exchange encryption keys and you will have to confirm the authenticity of the server, by comparing the fingerprint with:
    • badne5 c2:d2:f1:6b:d3:cd:ab:97:50:db:29:6b:e5:6a:a0:8e
    • badne6 61:ae:34:f7:f9:c7:f5:e2:a7:9d:9f:89:1a:82:f5:8e
    • badne7 e1:25:5f:48:af:30:45:a3:84:30:73:14:99:fc:8f:ea
  2. If fingerprint matches click Yes
That's It. Now, if you provided a valid username and password, the Gnome GNU/Linux desktop should soon appear.
