    Default SuSE 11.3 NoMachine - The server's evaluation period has expired

    On two SuSE 11.3 x64 machine I have installed NoMachine desktop sharing. It have worked fine till recent. On the one of the machines when i try to log in I receive - the server's evaluation period has expired , the other works fine , even the application has been installed on both machines at same time.
    I uninstalled the expired one, deleted all has left in /usr/NX and in home folder and reinstalled in again. But again receive the same massage . Obviously somewhere something has been written by the application or the application relays on some other information which confuse the usage.
    I checked the expire period on the working maching -

    linux:/home/one # cat /usr/NX/etc/server.lic | grep 'Expiry'
    Expiry: Thu Sep 23 12:10:18 EEST 2010
    linux:/home/one # cat /usr/NX/etc/node.lic | grep 'Expiry'
    Expiry: Thu Sep 23 12:10:18 EEST 2010
    linux:/home/one #

    Actually it has been expired but it works fine.

    Any idea what is supposed to be fixed ?

    Not sure... we run NX, but we run FreeNX. I'm posting this from my openSUSE
    11.3 via FreeNX right now. So... one possible solution might be to switch
    to FreeNX??

    You're using a commercial application which requires that you pay for it
    after the evaluation period. Solution: Either use a different product
    (like FreeNX) or pay the license fee for NoMachine.

    Asking here about how to circumvent their licensing policy is not the way
    to avoid paying for it. With commercial software, if you want to use it
    and it requires payment, then you must pay for it.

    I suppose it would also be good to mention (and I apologise for not
    mentioning it in my initial reply here) that if you did pay for the
    product, then you should have support available from NoMachine, and I'm
    sure they'd be happy to help you resolve the issue. :-)

    Hi
    The OP needs to install the free version (NX Free Edition) that allows
    two concurrent connections.

    Maybe one is running that version....

    I have tried FreeNX - configured tha data for the connection I want, after pushing button connect a small popup windows very ancient fashion appeared containing eight dishes to be filled, I do not know that second pass . Tried with unchecked authentication key in configuration panel, tried with copied ssl key as well, but the popup windows always appeared.
    Then switched to Qtnx which is another open source front end, there was no popup windows to ask for another pass, but it fails to login.

    No, I have downloaded the free version and the rpm packs are one and the same installed on both machines. I have created a plain folder repo wich feeds Yast soft manager the both machines, so the soft is indentical.

    "You're using a commercial application which requires that you pay for it

    That is what I have downloaded:

    NoMachine NX - Download: NX Free Edition for Linux

    "free forever" whatever it means.

    Hi
    Well my version says;
    Code:
    Expiry:             Unlimited
    So you might have downloaded the enterprise version? What is the
    output from;
    Code:
    rpm -qa |grep nx
    
    nxnode-3.4.0-14
    nxclient-3.4.0-7
    nxserver-3.4.0-14
