Currently I don´t think there is an NX client that runs on
the n800, nor is there a gpl client that runs on linux. The
core libraries are gpl and a client could be built on top
of that.

I looked at this a few months ago and it isnt too hard to
get the basic authentication mechanism working, but that
will only work on older versions of the NX server. The
newer servers uses a more complicated authentication

The other complication is probably getting some form of
virtual keyboard, but you can probably re-use whatever is
in the vnc client?
