NoMachine NX Server 'Shadow' connection

I’ve installed NoMachine’s ‘NX Free edition server’
(http://www.nomachine.com/download-package.php?Prod_Id=3504) (client,
node, server RPMS) and it works fine to connect to a new “Desktop->Unix:
GNOME” session remotely using NoMachine’s client.

I’d really like to connect to existing sessions using the
“Desktop->Shadow” setting on in the client. Anyone have experience with
this? I have it working on Ubuntu after setting
-EnableFullDesktopSharing = “1”- in /usr/NX/etc/server.cfg and ensuring
the client has “Display->As on the server” set. But on SLED 11.1, the
client seems to drop the connection some time after it shows my running
‘Local display’ session and I click ‘Attach’.

The client logs just seem to indicate the connection dropped and I
can’t figure out where NX keeps its server logs (or if it makes any).

Anyone have experience with this and know what I’m missing?

Hi
Alas I only connect to my SLES server, for logs see here;

For user logs;
~/.nx/

For NX logs;
/usr/NX/var/log

So what is the client, is this SLED as well?

Client was Ubuntu, but they’re both running the same software from
nomachine’s website (just one was *.deb, other was *.rpm) so I wouldn’t
expect that to matter.

/usr/NX/var/log/ only has 1 file → install
Does the server not take per-connection logs?

I did try the NX4 preview and that is working for Shadow connections,
but nothing else. For now NX4 is usable, but I’m still interested in
getting 3.5 working, as I might want sessions other than the local
session.
