Cool, I'll provide a "clean patch" soon. (I mean one that checks the protocol 
in the beginning and if its its nxfish, it'll use nxfish-client instead of

No exec, chdir, pwd support, it provides a base directory, which can contain 
symlinks (but are not seen as those) so you can share just certain folders 
and not all data the user can access.

What is not done and will not be done at the moment:

- - Symlink to / or something other means again access to whole system the user 
can access.
- - Read Only Support of Files (would be easy, but just for the whole 
FiSH-Server Instance)

It is supposed to be installed on the client that wants to do "filesharing" 
over FiSH (to the remote NX session).

Authentication to this fish-server is either done directly, but despite to ssh 
the nxfish-client does know the secret token transparently. (Or via 
complicated secure socks forwarding)

The idea of not using ssh directly, but the FiSH-server is to restrict access 
to files and actions, while keeping the simplicity of FiSH.

Yes, I know, but I need it for a certain purpose.
