    Around the end of October I posted a question about using key-based authentication with NX client. Titan provided a lengthy, detailed answer — thanks. I just wanted to follow up on this part of Titan’s answer:

    We have key-based authentication implemented in the NX protocol and we use it for server-to-server communication, for example in the cluster. Unfortunately still missing is key selection and GUI integration in the client. Once implemented, key-based authentication for the NX protocol will mirror the SSH implementation, so you will be able to insert the key as you do now for SSH.

    I just downloaded the latest build (4.0.369) and checked its changelogs, as well as those for all previous builds newer than what I asked about originally (namely: 4.0.{362,365,366,367,368}), but none seem to have any news about implementing the key-based auth Titan mentions. Is there any news about this (that I simply overlooked)? If not, where might I look for any information about approximately when this is planned to be implemented?

    Thanks in advance,


    p.s. Apologies for starting a new thread, but the original got closed and locked after 10 days, and I couldn’t see a way to re-open it to post this followup.


    This should be part of the 4.1 that is going to be released on Monday, 23rd of December. I say “should” because people is struggling to bring all the changes together and release them before Christmas.

    You are right that this took more time than expected. The fact is that many client developers were kept busy by the Android and iOS versions as well as by some other important fixes, so it seems that this feature did not get the attention it deserved.


    Hello, heywood!

    I found open FR that describe your question:

    Your original post:


    @titan: Thanks for the update. I see 4.1 is not yet out as of today (2013-12-31), but I understand the reason for the delay and it isn’t a big deal for me. I’ll keep an eye on the downloads page for a release announcement.


    : Cool — good to know it’s on the “radar,” and that this feature will get added eventually.


    Happy new year to all!
