    . copy stock config file to server.cfg:
            . # cd /usr/NX/etc
            . # cp server.cfg server.cfg_oem
            . # cp server-redhat.cfg.sample server.cfg

    . edit config files:
            . /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg: ensure that the following values are set:
                    . EnablePasswordDB = "0"
                    . EnableStatistics = "0"
                    . EnableNodeMonitoring = "0"
                    . EnableUserProfile = "0"

            . /usr/NX/etc/node.cfg
                    . EnableSensor = "0"

    . generate SSH keys:
            . /usr/NX/bin/nxserver --keygen
            . use the key: /usr/NX/share/keys/default.id_dsa.key in the NX Client config when making a connection to your server
