a little confused here, you want to run nxserver on your BSD box for
remote management?  I was a little confused by this product, does it
just provide a remote desktop (like VNC) or is it more like virtual
machine ala VMWare?  If this is a VNC replacement type application I
would go with tightvnc...or better yet leverage the power of the unix
way of doing things and use a shell ;p
