I think this is now supported in 0.7.2 though I haven't tried it. There has 
been discussion of the changes needed to make 0.7.1 work on the list, mainly 
about getting the VNC authentication to work. nxpasswd in 0.7.2 looks after 
this now. Check /etc/nxserver/node.conf for ENABLE_MIRROR_VIA_VNC=1 which is 
the default, at least on my Gentoo box. This should make the VNC sessions 
show up if you connect with a VNC session type - NOT the Shadow one! I don't 
know what it does about authentication, so it's probably a good idea to check 
the archives.

If that doesn't work you could always use krfb or its gnome equivalent. The 
one-time passwords this uses may be an advantage in this application too.
