freenx authentication failed

I tried to connect from my windows XP client to linux fedora6 freenx server but I keep on getting authentication failed problem.

I followed the guide to just install freenx using :
yum install freenx nx
Which installed :


And then I downloaded nx client for windows from nomachine website.

But I keep on getting stuck in which this error when I try to logon :
X> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 4088
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
NX> 200 Connected to address: on port: 22
NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
NX> 204 Authentication failed.
What I have done :

1) I have checked that sshd is running (default config...didn't change anything)

2) copy public key from /etc/nxserver and import into my client

3) plain vanilla fedora6 installation with KDE.

4) tried running :
nxserver --adduser root
nxserver --passwd root

Anyone have any idea what I should do?

Thanks in advance.
